About the instructor: Jason Deline is a founding member of the sketch comedy troupe Radio Vault, a unique show that was modeled after '30s radio shows, while using modern comedic sensibilities. Jason co-wrote and directed television commercials that starred the troupe, and also performed in the Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival.

Jason is an Honours graduate of Humber College's Radio Broadcasting program, and has worked at several radio stations as an announcer. He has voiced thousands of commercials for clients such as Coke, Mitsubishi, Subaru & Movie Central, as well as lent his voice as the lead character in several hit cartoons such as Bakugan and Beyblade

Jason also created and teaches the Find Your Voice voiceover workshop method, in which students receive hands-on practical experience in the world of professional voiceover.

Jason has done comedic turns in the plays Little Shop of Horrors (as the dentist), Anne of Green Gables and Audience, in which he won an award for playing a 65-year-old Texan.

On camera, Jason was a lead in the Canadian TV series Ready Or Not.
