"Pam and Bill are both amazing teachers and lovely people who really care about their students. I wouldn't have gotten anywhere in voiceover without them helping me take my first steps."
Voice credits include: "Spy Kids: Mission Critical", Blue Bobbin, "My Little Pony" and Izzy in the TV series "Nexo Knights".

The founders of Soundswrite, Pamela Jones and Bill Lawrie, met while playing a couple in a local theatre production. What is that expression? "Life imitates art"? Well, that's what happened...
They formed Soundswrite more than sixteen years ago and have been making beautiful music, voiceovers, commercials, demos, and coaching together ever since!
PAM is Soundswrite's Creative Director
With a B.A. in theatre and an honours degree in broadcasting from BCIT (where she is currently on the Advisory Council), Pam was the promo voice of all of Knowledge Network's pledge campaigns for several years. She voices descriptive video for the visually challenged, including several Hallmark movies, features and series. She has voiced for animated series including, "Molly from Denali" and "Slugterra" and casts and runs a WALLA group of North Shore Film Studios. She has voiced and produced for Virgin Radio, Jack FM, STAR FM and other major market stations. Pam has co-written several award-winning film and TV scripts, through Wolf Spirit Films, one of which won the Tribal Film Festival and placed in the "Top 10" at the Cannes International Screenplay Contest". She also co-wrote and co-produced three documentaries currently on CBC GEM. Pam served as a board member for Women in Film and continues to voice and write for clients around the world. She coaches online and teaches voice acting part-time in the professional diploma program at Story Institute in Vancouver.
BILL is Soundswrite's Technical Director
Bill trained in voiceover at Vancouver Film School and is a popular voice talent for ESL training around the globe. As producer of Rouxbe's international cooking school project, Bill managed two studios and voiceover artists in five different languages to create a product for Microsoft.
Bill has acted in several film and television projects and has been a voice for Siemen's International and many instructional and corporate videos.
Both Pam and Bill continue to train in acting, and when they're not in the studio, they're on their sailboat, or in the woods at their favourite Norwegian campground outside Mission, BC along with their beloved mini schnauzer "Gracie".
