Jessica Ristau has been speaking since the day she was born and she continues to have so much to say about everything. When Jessica was just a year old she kept saying she wanted to be one of the kids she saw on television. Why couldn’t she be on the commercials or television shows with her favorite characters? So Jessica, with mom’s help, was soon working on set for various productions. Jessica loves being the star of the show and relished every moment in front of the camera. As Jessica grew and her school requirements increased in the Magnet program, soon Jessica realized being on set would have to take a back burner, because missing tests was not what Jessica wanted. At that point Jessica started auditioning for a few voice over jobs and loved the way voiceover worked. Once Jessica booked a few voice over jobs, Jessica started training with the top voiceover coaches around the world. A studio was set up and tested by top professionals in the field. Now Jessica can easily record projects with a quick turnaround and always a cheerful personality.
Jessica’s first voice over booking was a commercial for Habitat for Humanity. With no studio in house Jessica started frequenting a local studio to record her voiceover projects. Since then Jessica has expanded her studio, coaching and training to regularly record jobs for animations, silly characters, video games, promos, voice activated speaking projects and a variety of other roles from child to teen.
