Caroline Cole is a Dallas-based storyteller. “What does that even mean?" you might ask. It's kind of a confusing title. But it was so hard to come up with a short job description! Voice over artist/copy writer/director/coach just got a little, well, long. Basically, it means telling stories in whatever way possible and empowering others to find their own voice, tell their own story and make their own dreams come true. Originally trained as a writer and actor, Caroline’s since added voice acting, directing, teaching and yoga to the mix.
Clients are usually looking for:
original copy (ghost-written or not)
plays and skits (short or long)
scripts for voice over
edit work already created
professional voice over
Students are usually looking for:
a straightforward course that provides real INSPIRATION and teaches skills QUICKLY without having to save up ridiculous amounts of money to start living the life of their dreams.
a ONE-TIME COACHING SESSION for general feedback on their business, writing, or voice over techniques.
a COACHING PACKAGE to hone their writing or voice over skills in a way that will make them more profitable, knowledgeable, and marketable in their field.
a regular yoga or meditation teacher to help them STAY CALM through all the craziness of life.
Caroline is obsessed with storytelling, arts advocacy, and creative living, which led her to pursue voice acting, writing, teaching, coaching and yoga. (Also she loves murder mysteries, Harry Potter, Star Wars, improv comedy, hiking and drinking champagne poolside.)
After graduating from the National Theatre Institute (NTI) at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre Center and completing a bachelors' in theatre performance at Rice University, Caroline then spent two years in Ukraine serving as a Peace Corps volunteer. Certified as a TEFL teacher, she taught English at a village school, empowered young women to educate others on tough issues like HIV/AIDS and human trafficking, organized and taught creative summer camps all across the country, and served as president for a nationwide environmental organization. Plus, *BONUS* she met a very cute British boy, who she married in 2014.
Now back in Dallas, Caroline’s completed a masters degree in Theatre Education, directs youth theatre in her spare time, co-works at a magical space — Arts Mission Oak Cliff, and collaborates with artist and entrepreneurs all over the world.
Wake. Drink coffee. Tell stories. Repeat.
