The story of the sep...
Pete Sepenuk has been doing voices since he was seven years old, and is one of the entertainment industry’s leading voice-over artists, heard everywhere from features to television shows, commercials to animation, trailers to infomercials, and video games to live announcing. He has voiced thousands of TV promos and toy commercials, and has been the voice of several national ad campaigns and animated series.
He began his voice-over career in 1995, when he was directing and producing spots for Mattel Toys, voicing spots for HOT WHEELS and many others. In 1998, he met animation legend and director, Sue Blu, who became his mentor and changed his life. Five weeks into taking her six week class, she put him on the animated TV series GODZILLA, produced his first VO demo, and introduced him to Jeff Danis, head voice-over agent at ICM, one of the top VO agencies at the time, and Pete became a client.
In early 2000, Pete signed with the William Morris Agency (now WME - William Morris Endeavor) with head voice-over agent Erik Seastrand, where things really took off. During his time at WME, Pete has worked on everything from American Idol, The Simpsons, Bob's Burgers, Ghostbusters, Disney's Moana, Star Wars, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Nickelodeon and Burn Notice to major advertisers such as Budweiser, White Castle, Toyota, Ford, National Car Rental, Lexus and Kraft Foods. He is currently recording as we speak.
