One on One with Mark Avery & Jane

Jane askes her dear friend Mark Avery to join her on the Next Room. Mark lost an uncle, father, step-father as well as a dear friend all in the space of two weeks in January this year. Jane speaks to her friend about how he coped and dealt with the back to back loss and how he managed his grief. The two old friends discuss Jewish traditions surrounding death and burial and Mark explains what it means to sit shiva. Of course Jane had to know what her friend thinks is in the next room waiting when we transition and Mark's explanation of God is powerful. It’s all coming up One on One with Mark & Jane in The Next Room!

After spending his first nine years in New York city, Mark moved to Southern California where he has lived ever since.  He graduated from the University of California, San Diego with degrees in communications and visual arts.  Mark then spent the next 7 1/2 years as Production Director and On-Air Personality at KTYD, Santa Barbara and 3 1/2 years in the same capacities for KLOS, Los Angeles.  During that span he also dabbled in traditional, commercial and voice acting. 

In 1995, Mark left the broadcast industry to fully pursue his two greatest loves in life (besides his wife, Dianne, his son, Michael, and his daughter, Karissa): voice over and commercial audio producing.  He has since become one of the top talents in the voice over industry.  His work can be heard worldwide 24/7 on television, radio, video, industrial applications, and has even been featured on a Billboard #1, triple-platinum, hit rap tune. 

In January of 2000, Mark started Uhearme, Inc. to oversee his VO career, as well as UHearMe Productions - his successful studio and audio/video production facility.  And now, Mark is helping others to reach the pinnacles of their voice acting careers through his "1 On 1 Voice Over Training" intensive workshops, as well as his "DEMOlition" VO demo construction. Mark regularly enjoys coaching high school and travel girl's softball, fishing, golfing, hiking,p oker, cooking, and playing and collecting guitars.


About Jane Asher:

Jane Asher is a natural connector, who got her start in media through Michigan radio in 1980. She soon traveled west and has worked at legendary radio stations such as KTYD Santa Barbara, KGB, KSON and K-BEST 95 in San Diego. She also received the prestigious Marconi Award for her work on 98.1 KIFM.

Her natural curiosity led her to expand her business by including marketing and social media. When anyone asks her what she does for a living she responds; "I connect inspired people with one another, especially those with a desire to help others."

Jane has been involved in many international missions. She is part of a team for the past five years that has been building homes in Tijuana for families in need. She has also traveled to El Salvador to feed the homeless, Malaysia to help build a school on Borneo, and Armenia to work with women and children in the small village of Amre Taza. Recently she was in the Dominican Republic on humanitarian mission.

After years in broadcasting, voiceover and social media she is finally answering her true calling. Writing. Her forth-coming book(s) deal with her fascination and connection with souls that have transitioned. She is actively in research mode and writing daily. Her show on Empower~ The Next Room is part of her attraction process and research for her book.
