    Dear Mr. Spicer.

    Last week I discovered Edge Studios on the internet, and today I learned you became the Managing Director in June. Congratulations.

    On October 13th I am scheduled to attend the four hour on-line evaluation. Your advice helped me understand that I have a lot of work ahead, assuming, of course, that I receive favorable feedback after the evaluation.

    Thank you for your candor and insight. I now have a much better understanding of what it will take to be successful as a voice actor. Odds of my success just shifted slightly for the better.
