“Our lives begin to End the day we become Silent about things that Matter.” So many great quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr. are still so relevant today and apply to every part of our lives. If something matters to you, if someone needs help, or if you see injustice around you, speak up. Happy MLK Day! What matters most to you? . . . . . #quotestoremember #martinlutherkingjr #mlkday #thingsthatmatter #quote #mlk #nazvoice #wisewords
I snapped a recent post from my Facebook Page as I reflected on last night. From all the games and animation I’ve recorded voiceover for almost 20 years, I’ve never had a chance to sit down & watch. Thanks for sharing this moment with me, guys! My friends are the bestest! ❤️❤️ Thanks @sbidiwala & my Dallas fam for the impromptu watch party! Swipe ⬅️ for more footage.

Well, shucks!! Thank you for the glowing review, Garrett! Garrett and I began working on his conversational voiceover delivery to help him begin booking more VO work. He has a great ear & takes direction well. It is truly an honor & privilege to be a mentor and coach to some of the best and brightest rising stars in voiceover, acting, and singing. I love coaching and pour my heart into my students, just as all my mentors had done for me along my own journey as a creative artist. Seriously, doesn’t he have a cool name?! Garrett Kiesel. He already sounds like a star! ⭐️ I feel like we’re gonna hear a lot of buzz about @thekiespiece very soon. Watch out world! . . . . . . #nazvoice #anime #voiceover #voiceacting #voiceactor #dallas #vocalcoach #voicecoach #voiceovercoach #voiceactingcoach #recordingartist #animation #character #accents #gratitude #dallastexas #mytosstory #ilovemyjob #brandpartner #skypelessons #skypecoaching #vo #risingstars #instasinger #instaactor #voicelessons #vocalhealth #conversational #commercial #narration
It’s an honor to play the role of Mrs. Zeda in the upcoming episode of Radiant for @funimation . Isn’t she cute?!! She’s a fun loving spitfire with 6 children!!! Seriously guys, I can’t even handle my own 2 kiddos! 😂 Check my IG Stories to follow my adventures! Special thanks to the Funimation studio fam for the warmest welcome back. ❤️ . . . . . . . . #nazvoice #anime #voiceover #voiceacting #voiceactor #dallas #singer #actor #vocalcoach #voicecoach #mrszeda #thezedas #voiceactingcoach #recordingartist #sennheiser #neumann #voiceovercoach #animation #character #accents #gratitude #dallastexas #funimation #mytosstory #thoracicoutletsyndrome #tos #ilovemyjob #casting #brandpartner #caitlinglass
Since Thoracic Outlet Syndrome entered my life a couple years ago, I’ve had to change the way I approach things, so I don’t aggravate the symptoms into a flare up, like I did when I tried to organize my entire office last year. It really was not a good idea to tackle that project alone...and it still isn’t finished! Lol. As someone who is used to always being independent and on the go, I’ve also learned after That experience, that it’s ok to ask for help when my TOS gets in the way of my life & work plans. Meet my friend, Spencer Liles! He’s helping me refurbish some old acoustic panels I bought from a legendary Atlanta recording studio that closed its doors a couple years ago. Spencer’s gonna be my arms to finally help me bring this vision to fruition, before I had to hit pause on my life a while back in order to calm the chronic inflammation that TOS causes. Follow my IG Stories as I post our journey through upcycling these panels to spruce up the aesthetics & acoustics of my home recording studio. We’re gonna make them look pretty! 😆 1 panel down & 11 to go! 30 more Yards of fabric are on the way from @joann_stores & let’s be real ... what DIY project is complete without multiple trips to @homedepot ?! Good thing The Home Depot is down the street! And seriously...do you think I would even tackle this project without consulting with the Guru of all things recording studio, George Whittam @georgethetech ?! Think again! What better person to consult? That’s what Skype is for!! As a busy, working voiceover talent, actor & singer, I currently have a recording set up that definitely gets the job done, but this acoustic panel upgrade will definitely hold me over until I decide on which sound booth is my best option. The big question is will my 2nd floor studio space be able to handle the weight of a heavy sound booth? Orrrr Maybe the acoustic panel studio upgrade is all I will need. We shall see.
I have been fortunate enough to partner with these global brand leaders and many more by using my voice & acting skills. I am reflecting on the days as a kid, when my sibs & I would make sock puppet & chin people shows and create our own commercials & film scenes! We were all classical violinists & studied piano. I started violin at age 5. Later, I dabbled in other instruments as well & studied classical voice growing up too. So we used to make up songs, sing and harmonize back then. Remember that Nytol jingle?! My brother and I would harmonize just based on that theme and a whole lot more. 😂 In high school, I got the acting & musical theater bug. Who knew that all that fun, hard work, years in college and grad school working on my voice & long hours practicing my passions would eventually turn into a successful career in music, singing, voiceover, acting & coaching?! I’m doing all the things I love! Life is truly unpredictable, but God has a plan. I don’t count all the years of labor from my youth & education, although it sounds more impressive lol, but Here’s to nearly 25 years of professionally performing my passions. 🥂 Only God knows what is to come for me... To be continued... I’m getting into IG Stories lately, so check it out for tips and follow my journey! . . . . . . . . #nazvoice #voiceover #voiceactor #actor #dallasvoiceover #singersofinstagram #explainervideo #ivr #narration #commercial #animation #character #accents #neumann #senheisser #brandpartner #ilovemyjob #casting #recordingstudio #videogame #recordingartist #timeafter #mytosstory #thoracicoutletsyndrome #tos #elearning #voiceovertalent #homestudio #nytol #passionista
Thinking back on the holidays today. One of my favorite holiday gifts was spending quality time with my 2 minimes, Rania & Sami. They are finally at the point where they can play together!

I get so overwhelmed when there are too many choices. At that point, I call my Super Mom @yasmeenrchaudhry to help me decide. 🥰 Who can relate? Today, I’m at @joann_stores picking out fabric for these acoustic panels I purchased from an Atlanta recording studio that closed down a while back. I’m tackling a home studio project I was supposed to complete over 2 years ago before I got the Bilateral TOS symptoms. On a good note....Good thing I waited because we moved to Dallas a year later. Lol! I found a friend that is able to help me out.

Meet Yasmeen! AKA “Jazzy.” Jazzy has been my number one fan since the beginning, of course, because she had me! She’s my mama. This photo was taken on my birthday last year at @benihana . Since I was a kid, we’ve had most of our celebrations at Beni’s! I now keep that tradition going with my own family as well. Anyhoo... Aside from being a fabulous mom, Jazzy is definitely a designer of all things creative. In fact, my house is pretty much a gallery of my mama’s original paintings and home design. She’s an artiste, jewelry maker, stylist, sewing Queen, master organizer, & hardcore DIYer. Jazzy lives on the edge too! This lady owns and knows how to operate an electric saw. She owns just as many items from @homedepot as she owns @michaelsstores beads!! And she’s got a LOT of beads! Jazzy has been the driving force behind most every major accomplishment I have had so far. She encourages me to always move forward, no matter what. Jazzy was my cheerleader to complete my Masters degree when I was pregnant with my daughter Rania & stuck with me even in my darkest moments through my journey with Bilateral Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. She’s been there for everything & I cannot thank her enough. I love you, Mommy! . . . . . . . @yasmeenrchaudhry #nazvoice #momlife #generations #familytraditions #benihana #mymommy #jazzy #mytosstory #thoracicoutletsyndrome #tos #chronicpain #neuropathy #artistsofinstagram #jewelrydesigner #stylist #diy #mastersdegree #music #jazzsinger #georgiastateuniversity #universityofnorthtexas #unt #instasinger #thehomedepot #michaelsstores #voiceover #actor #voicecoach #voiceovercoach #vocalcoach
‪So...this happened today! I am filled with gratitude to be reunited with @funimation to record an anime session after 8 years. So much has changed after we returned to Dallas from Atlanta.

“I know a place where dreams are born and time is never planned. It’s not on any chart. You must find it in your heart. Never Neverland. It might be miles beyond the moon, or right there, where you stand. Just have an open mind and suddenly you’ll find Never Neverland.” - Peter Pan The rest of my arrangement of Never Neverland can be found on my YouTube Channel at www.youtube.com/musicnaz . This song will forever be dedicated to my kids, because once they arrived, it took on a very different meaning to me. In fact, my perspective on everything I do has changed since I became a mother 6 years ago, from my music arranging & acting to singing & voiceover, even with coaching. Although I’ve been dealing with TOS and other health issues in the last couple years since I delivered my son, I feel grateful & blessed in many ways now. As a performer, trials and tribulations are kind of a blessing in disguise, because they remind us we are human & time away from what we love to do can make us appreciate the position we are in even more when we try to get back to life as usual. The negatives can actually be transformed into positives, especially for any performer, actor, singer, voiceover talent, or speaker. What better way to deliver a performance than to have truly been through some joyful moments as well as the rough times in order to deliver a more meaningful & authentic performance that it just as real to your audience also. All this means is that the emotions are raw and real & coming from the right spot... the most vulnerable spot... the heart, as it always should. . . . . . #nazvoice #thoracicoutletsyndrome #mytosstory #peterpan #neverneverland #liveperformance #momlife #sennheiser #neumann #microphone #recordingartist #jazzsinger #actor #voiceover #vocalist #diaphragmaticbreathing #vocaltechnique #voicecoach #vocalcoach #voiceovercoach #performer #tos #voicetechnique #dallasvoiceover #skypelessons #authenticity #voiceactor #timeafter #debutalbum #positivevibes
Never stop learning. It is an investment in yourself & your career. I love my students & grateful to teach the art of acting, speaking, voiceovers & singing for nearly 20 years. Stephen Howard ‪was by far my tallest student. He is a former NBA player, turned motivational speaker and ESPN & FOX Sports analyst. We worked on voice techniques to help him deliver sports news more effortlessly on the mic in a court full of fans without strain. @stephenhoward . . . . . . . #nazvoice #ESPN #NBA #motivationalspeaker #voiceover #voicecoach #skypelessons #vocalcoach #voiceactingcoach #voiceacting #presenter #voice #humanvoice #speaking #diaphragmaticbreathing #voicetechniqueteacher #vocaltechnique #voicehealth #vocalhealth #resonance #actingcoach #performancecoach #vocalist #singersofinstagram #foxsports #foxnetwork #teamnaz #skypesession #savemyvoice #voiceovercoach
Meet Sami, AKA “Baby Sweets,” my one & only son. Definitely a suit man 👔 & CEO of the house. He loves dinosaurs 🦖🦕, yogurt, and candy. Now you can see why he got that nickname lol. Sami is my little thinker. He enjoys painting, coloring & building blocks. He’s also a night owl 🦉 like his big sis. No matter what time my kids go to bed, they wake up super early. Between our 2 kiddos, I don’t know how we function off such little sleep 😂, but hey, it gives me motivation to start my work days super early! Do you have early risers at home too? . . . . . . . . . . . . . #nazvoice #suitman #momlifebelike #voiceactor #actor #casting #gamedev #singer #jazzsinger #elearning #explainervideo #ivr #narration #commercial #animation #character #accents #dialects #imaginativeplay #kidsplay #advertisingagency #productionhouse #elearning #vocalcoach #voicecoach #voiceovercoach #elearningdevelopment #whiteboardanimation #skypelessons #teamnaz
Meet Rania. This is my first born & only daughter. It’s hard to believe she’s 6 already!! She’s my little spit fire Kindergartener. She’s an early riser, a level 2 reader, loves drawing, full of energy & definitely a boss already! When I’m not voicing projects in my home studio, serenading an audience in town, acting on set, or coaching students online, I’m taking orders from my minime. 😂 Do you have a boss baby at home too? . . . . . . #nazvoice #voiceover #voiceactor #actor #casting #gamedev #singer #jazzsinger #elearning #explainervideo #ivr #narration #commercial #dallassinger #animation #character #accents #dialects #brandvideo #brandpartner #ilovemyjob #castingdirector #adagency #productionhouse #advertising #vocalcoach #voicecoach #voiceovercoach #elearning

Well, here’s my #top9of2018 ! Behind all the smiles has been a silent struggle. Although I’ve been in physical therapy on & off since delivering my son in 2016, I’ve logged in well over 500 hours of therapy in the last year & a half between physical & massage therapy, chiropractic care, Chinese cupping, acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine. In May, I got a final medical diagnosis after 2 years of meeting countless doctors & specialists. At the very least, I was thankful to have been going through PT from the very beginning. The truth is, when this first happened to me, I could barely walk or even hold my newborn son. After an inconclusive trip to the Houston TOS Clinic in 2017, I gave up on searching for a medical diagnosis & focused on healing myself. In May 2018, I had finally been diagnosed with Bilateral Thoracic Outlet Syndrome by Dr. Pearl in Dallas thanks to Dr. @sbidiwala ‘s referral & @dryounas ‘s counsel. Bilateral TOS affects the nerves in my neck as well as both arms, and involves other symptoms that affect my chest, ribs, cervical & thoracic spine. After finding out I decided to go all in this year to try and fight off a controversial Bilateral TOS surgery. So far, my therapy efforts are paying off, with lots of help at home from my husband, family, and @instacart lol. (Thank you @humaraniq for telling me about the wonders of Instacart!) I also dropped 30 lbs of baby weight this summer after figuring out that certain foods were actually making my chronic inflammation worse. Of course, still 20 more to go! TOS has caused a lot of pain and took a lot away from me, but I still have a voice. One of my goals for 2019 includes telling my TOS story and raising awareness of this horrible & at times debilitating disease to try and help others prevent what I’ve had to go through . #mytosstory #nazvoice #thoracicoutletsyndrome #thoracicoutletsyndromeawareness #voiceover #voiceovertalent #singer #jazzsinger #actor #voiceactor #alternativetherapy #physicaltherapy #chiropracticcare #instacart #chinesecupping #tcm #chinesemedicine #chronicpain #chronicillness #tos #acupuncture #top9of2018 #top9 #arcadespirits #happynewyear #recordingartist #modoma
In the last couple years, my health has been full of many ups and downs. This last year has been my most challenging. I had the most pain I had ever felt with my TOS. This is me on a mechanical cervical traction table. You can check out more on my IG stories from today for more. Anyway, I’ve been doing cervical traction on & off for 2.5 years. Now it has been almost a year straight, 2 x a week. I got my final Bilateral Thoracic Outlet Syndrome diagnosis in May 2018 from Dr Pearl in Dallas. I had seen over 25 docs & specialists, many physical therapists & chiropractors to finally get a medical confirmation from Dr Pearl. Since April 2018, I started seeing a new chiropractor, who is also a Traditional Chinese Medicine doc as well. Before seeing Dr. Zhang, I had met with many chiropractors for my TOS. For over 2 years, I wasn’t able to sleep through the night because of numbness in my arms. Since seeing Dr. Zhang, a more qualified physical therapist, combined with medical massage, I am now able to sleep through the night without as much nerve pain & arm numbness! My TOS is finally responding to combination therapy. PT, massage, acupuncture, herbs, e stim, & Chinese cupping. Alternative therapies take time. Lots of time & patience. The pain kept coming back...I was ready to throw in the towel and get the controversial bilateral TOS surgery in July, but I kept telling myself it is the Last possible option after trying as much as I could. I am finally getting a handle on the triggers, such as sleep position and training myself to sleep on my back, limiting dairy & gluten & lectins, keeping my shoulders down, not raising my arms too much throughout the day, watching my posture, and the list goes on and on. I still have to watch it, and the TOS will live with me forever, but I am hopeful that I will survive this without surgery as long as I can. Alternative therapies work, but you have to be consistent & very patient . #thoracicoutletsyndrome #traditionalchinesemedicine #herbalmedicine #accupuncture #chiropractor #massagetherapy #chinesecupping #medicinalherbs #spinaldecompression #alternativetherapy #voiceover #nazvoice #jinglesinger #jazzsinger #mytosstory
It’s an honor to work with such wonderful students & clients, and I am always thankful for their testimonials & positive feedback.

Traffic was surprisingly light for Xmas eve in Dallas! I began scheduling my massage therapy sessions on Mondays because with 2 little ones, it’s hard to avoid a TOS flare up. I get medical massage therapy 2 times a week now. And that is a huge improvement from starting at 5 hours a week since October 2017! (Check my IG stories for more scoop). This does not include all the many hours I’ve spent in physical therapy, chiropractic care, & other alternative therapies. Bilateral Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is debilitating at times and it’s a very expensive problem to have. We lowered our medical deductibles this year in order to accommodate. With alternative and natural therapies, you have to be consistent over a long period of time to see any kind of progress. Thank you @modomawellness for helping me improve my quality of life! Cheers to progress! . . . . . #nazvoice #voiceover #voiceactor #actor #dallasvoiceover #casting #gamedev #gameaudio #singer #jazzsinger #explainervideo #ivr #narration #commercial #dallassinger #animation #character #accents #dialects #neumann #senheisser #microphones #ilovemyjob #modoma #thoracicoutletsyndrome #thoracicoutletsyndromeawareness #messageonhold #voiceacting #chronicpain #mytosstory
A wonderful client has entrusted me with their baby. Their creative baby, that is. I can’t tell you who it is right now, but soon I will. And once it’s released to the world, I’ll be smiling from ear to ear. It’s such an honor to voice this project, work with great clients, And it’s been tons of fun!

After delivering my son in 2016, I’ve dealt with chronic pain. I couldn’t turn my neck, had pain and burning in my arms when I would do anything. I could barely hold my son or even type on a computer because my elbows would burn, & I could hardy walk. Considering all the pain I was in, I had 2 little kids & was scared I’d never be able to perform again, or even work again at all. I was in PT 5 days a week, 3 days Arms/Neck & 2 days legs/feet. It took 2 years & too many doctors to get a confirmed diagnosis of bilateral thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS). I had so much inflammation I was even having trouble seeing. I tried going vegan for a month, restricting calories, Keto, eating salads, worked out all the time, & the scale Never moved! Last year, I had chronic sinus infections. I couldn’t figure out why all of this was happening. In March, I went on a quest to lose the post pregnancy weight that wouldn’t budge. I came across many articles about inflammatory foods & gluten and dairy causing high levels of inflammation in chronic pain sufferers. I tried everything else & thought...why not? In an effort to alleviate my severe pain & avoid a brutal bilateral TOS surgery, I figured out what movements aggravated my symptoms & intensely went all in on physical & alternative therapies. I also started eating organic & found gluten & dairy were enhancing the burning in my arms, causing headaches, & post nasal drip. I dropped 20 lbs by going gluten / dairy free. Then my friend Martha Kahn told me about The Plant Paradox by @drstevengundry & he explains his ideas about lectins & inflammatory “so called healthy” foods and inflammation. The concepts in this book are eye opening. I dropped 10 more lbs. While my TOS may never go away, the basic concepts in this book have changed my life for the better. What book are you reading at the moment? How has it changed you? #nazvoice #plantparadox #weightloss #lectinfree #dairyfree #glutenfree #nervepain #thoracicoutletsyndrome #mytosstory #foodmedicine #postnasaldrip #sinusinfection #chronicillness #inflammation #mycontentcalendar #chronicpain #raredisease #voiceover #singer #actor #voicecoach #antiinflammatoryfoods #neuropathy
After a long day of slaying my work by voicing 🎙 & editing projects for clients, prepping to sing a show, checking in with my agents, or teaching voiceover actors & singers how to perfect their performance, master their diaphragms, and rock the mic 📚🎭🎤, I try to take a minute to relax, (Hmmmm.... Define Relax & define downtime, because I spent Friday night updating my LinkedIn profile lol...) but there isn’t much time to do that when my kiddos get home from school. 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦Ainnobodygottimefodat!! 😂 Usually the gym 🏋🏽‍♀️ in the morning or a mani/pedi 💅🏽 is my Me Time, but it’s been so cold lately and my youngest is waking up at 4am like a champ 🏆, so I kinda fell outta the gym groove for a few weeks now. In my down time, I like to curl up on the couch or bed 🛏 with a snack and read 📖 blogs or articles about health & wellness, skincare & makeup, industry related topics, vocology, business & entrepreneurship, and self-improvement on my phone ☎️ . ( #nerdalert 👓🚨!) Thennnn my daughter rolls up, snatches my phone, and it becomes a big Snapchat 📸 party lol. (✅Follow my IG story to see some of our fun snaps today). So basically, even my downtime gets interrupted. Hahah! If I’m lucky, I get to actually complete a chapter in a book without interruptions. 📚 In fact, I had to restart a book this week since I was interrupted by the kids so many times, I couldn’t even remember what the previous chapters were even about, in which I attribute to the delicate combination of child rearing, parenthood, and joining Club 40. Sooooo....those of you who were able to make it this far into my story...how do you like to relax after a long day at your dream job? . . . #relaxation #entrepreneurlife #chillvibes #snapchat #snapfilter #parenthood #momlifebelike #voiceovermom #actorsofinstagram #singersofinstagram #easygoingglamoureffervescentcharm #nazvoice #ilovemyjob #dreamjob #voiceovercoach #voicecoach #vocalcoach #actingcoach #singingteacher #mycontentcalendar #freelancecreative #vocology #vocalpedagogy #slayallday #videoproducer #explainervideo #commercial #conversational #canva
Staying hydrated is so important. Staying sane? Well... that’s another thing, considering I have 2 small kiddos. I always carry my flip top water bottle with me Everywhere! It is my Life! Contigo makes my favorite flip top bottle with a push button And a lock. Although H2O is my go to, Earl Grey, Mint, or Jasmine Green Tea are my favs between voicing and booking new projects to coaching students. This “juice” keeps my creativity flowing.

Hi! My name is Nazia Chaudhry, but my friends call me Naz. I’m a voiceover artist, singer, on-camera actor, and coach based in Dallas, Texas.

I tell my students that Art, acting, singing, voiceover, dance, etc. can only be as authentic as your own personal experiences. Yes, there are many hours spent practicing and improving skills. I’ve been there...spending hours and hours rehearsing in the practice room, behind the mic, on stage, and on camera. But if you have no life experience to draw from, then your performance runs the risk to be just that...a showcase of your skills. It’s not going to feel passionate or authentic to the listener or viewer. . . Skills are techniques and mechanics that require thinking. Save all that for rehearsal. Of course, you must learn the rules before you break them, and the True art happens when you defy or break those rules.... when it no longer requires thinking...after hours of practice, but is coming from within your heart. When it’s time for the gig, the booking, the show, or the performance, always remember... Acting is from your head, so leave it in the practice room. The Art is the authentic, magical stuff that comes from what’s inside your heart. . . . . . . . #nazvoice #voiceover #voiceactor #actor #dallasvoiceover #voicecoach #videogamevoiceover #gamedev #vocalcoach #singer #jazzsinger #explainervideo #ivr #narration #vocalproducer #jinglesinger #animevoiceactor #commercial #dallassinger #animation #character #voiceovercoach #neumann #senheisser #recordingartist #ilovemyjob #quotestoliveby #educator #whiteboardanimation #explainervideo #vocalist
Yesterday was packed full of surprises! My son stayed up from 1:30-5am. I couldn’t go back to sleep after dropping the kids to school, so I meal prepped, coached some students via Skype, and worked on some voiceover projects. In the midst of reviewing a video game script, I had to send off an operatic jingle audition. So I quickly warmed up my voice, so I could record and send it off. By the middle of the night, my son crawled into my bed and then rolled over and hit the hardwood floor...and the interrupted sleep cycle begins all over again lol. I love how every day is different in my work, but I don’t love the unexpected lack of sleep or my baby getting hurt so much lol. I’ve been documenting some funny moments on my IG stories here and there. Anyway, How’s your day going? Any fun (or not so fun) surprises? . . . #nazvoice #voiceover #voiceactor #actor #casting #gameaudio #jazzsinger #singer #explainervideo #ivr #narration #commercial #adagency #animation #character #accents #neumann #senheisser #ilovemyjob #vocalwarmup #warmups #jinglesinger #advertisingagency #vocalcoach #voicecoach #voiceovercoach #actingcoach #vocalcoaching #skypelessons #onlinecoaching
🤔 I think I reached a whole new level of motherhood 👩‍👧‍👦 because at this point, it’s easier to just sweep 🧹 up the crayons 🖍 off the floor and put them into the trash 🗑 , rather than trying to find a new container in the kitchen, since locating the original container is impossible because it’s probably somewhere in the upstairs 🏃‍♀️ bathroom 🚽 and that would involve way more of my energy than I need to expend this morning. 🌞 . . . . . . #motherhood #momlife #crayons #cleaning #crayola #mom #kitchen #kidsaremessy #nazvoice #nazlive #flatlay #explainervideo #elearning #coloring #accidentalflatlay #reallifeflatlay #voiceover #singer #voiceactor #actor #commercial #conversational #narration #ivr #singingvoice #singer #actor #voiceoveractor #adagency #mycontentcalendar #producer #elearningcompany

I’ll be chillin’ with my lil gnomies again in a bit, but first I’m gonna enjoy that new swagger-wagon smell while I munch on my scooby snacks.

We drove past that nearby neighborhood again with the Christmas lights tonight and I got to capture more detail.

I usually look forward to making my dad’s cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving dinner. But since we had to miss it this year because the kids were sick, a @bostonmarket meal with packaged cranberry sauce 4 days later for lunch is as close as we gon’ get! 😂🍗 . . . . . . . . #momlife #playground #recording #voicetalent #voiceover #vo #nazvoice #gamedev #casting #coaching #educator #voiceactress #voiceoveractor #voiceoveractress #voiceover #recordingartist #neumann #sennheiser #voicecoach #microphone #whiteboardanimation #canva #animation #character #vocalist #jazz #jazzsinger #actor #bostonmarket #vocalcoach #rotisseriechicken
Rania drew my picture from my album cover. I wish I was that skinny lol. She didn’t believe me when I told her that she was a baby in my belly during that photoshoot. Then she opened the album & even read her name and all the words she knew in the dedication I wrote.🤰🏽😄📖 So...Why are my curls more on point in Her picture? 🤷🏻‍♀️😂💝 . . . . . . . . . #nazvoice #voiceover #voiceactor #actor #recordingartist #albumcover #timeafter #casting #gamedev #gameaudio #singer #latinjazz #jazzsinger #explainervideo #ivr #narration #commercial #singingvoiceover #animation #character #accents #dialects #brandvideo #globalbrand #neumann #senheisser #brandpartner #microphones #ilovemyjob #ethnicallyambiguous @sennheiser @neumann.berlin
2 sick kiddos on Thanksgiving, so no turkey dinner for us last night. Took my girl out in our PJs to explore the nearby lights to break up the monotony of being locked in the house. And Sami’s 5:30a wakey wakies are back. Anyhoooo...how was your T-giving? #christmaslights
Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! There’s always something to be thankful for. I’m grateful for everything, but more specifically my health, husband, children, family & friends. Over the last couple years, I’ve seen the world through a very different lens than I was used to, so I’m also thankful for all the seemingly little things in life, like being able to hold my son, because after all, these little things really are the big things. What are you thankful for? 🍽🍁🦃🥧 #gratitude #happythanksgiving #thankfulthursday #happinessis thank you @jonathantilleydotcom ! ❤️

So excited that my daughter is starting her very first drama class today! I remember when I started acting in my teens. She gets a head start at age 5ish, which is around when I started playing violin. (Well, she'll be 6 in a couple weeks). No...my goal is not to become stage mom or get her involved in the biz lol. My goal is to help my kiddo excel her reading level, develop her focus & teach her how to work under pressure, build her confidence & self-esteem, encourage creative & critical thinking skills, learn about leadership & teamwork, and develop her public speaking skills. #musicandartseducator #theartsmakeyousmart #musicandartsadvocate #andyouthoughtitwasjustfunandgames #momlife #mommoments #payitforward #nazvoice

Bundle up, Buttercups! Sometimes it’s hard to smile in the face of adversity, but do it anyway!

Thank you everyone for the sweet messages and wonderful birthday wishes! I had a fabulous time enjoying the day with my fam. The night literally ended on a high note with my bro singing happy birthday at the top of his lungs. The party has just begun... ❤️😂🎉🎂💐 👗 👠 💃🏻 #nazvoice
It took a while, but I’m finally exploring the world of Source Connect Standard! I have 15 days to practice on the trial. I could use all the help I can get, so any pointers on bridging or any SC basics or pitfalls are welcome, especially related to voiceover and singing. I record VO on Twisted Wave through my Apollo Twin. I usually record at another studio for ISDN or SC sessions so I don’t stress too much, but I decided to challenge myself to push beyond phone patch & Skype capabilities at home. #awholenewworld #nazvoice #sourceconnect #trialrun #voiceover #actor #singer @sourceelements
Shout out to @celiasiegelmanagement and her team for today’s VO sesh and a bonus, totally unexpected and last minute national spot to boot! @sennheiser @neumann.berlin #goteam #donttouchmyphones #ormymic #sennheiser #neumann #nazvoice #teamnaz #csm #voiceover #singer #actor #vo

Friend & fellow voice actor/musician, Bill Russell @billrvoices sent me this fun vid. Apparently, my album is stuck in his car’s CD player. Thanks, Bill. Love it! Enjoy the ride! 😂 🎶 💕 📻 🚗 🎤 #nazvoice #billrussell #timeafter #sodancosamba #naziachaudhry #dallasjazz #jazz #singer #vocalist

First timer for Vietnamese ice coffee ☕️. Wowzers! That’s strong, but good! We used to eat at this place when it opened in Plano, after just moving to our house in North Dallas the First time lol. This is my 1st time back here since we moved back from the ATL and Second time around ... it’s still fresh & really great food. In fact, the same guy is there managing the restaurant & at the register after all these years! #fridayflashbackyetrightnow #confusing #vietnameseicedcoffee #nomnomnommm #nazvoice
My kiddo is obsessed with Snapping ...here’s a small glimpse of silliness. 🙃🐶🐰🔥 #momlife #snap #nazvoice #ranigram #happygram

"If I Loved You," is from Carousel, one of my favorite classic musicals. I arranged it as a bossa for my album. This performance features Tyrone Jackson, Sam Skelton, Craig Shaw, Justin Varnes & Emrah Kotan. #nazvoice
