About Jody & Paul

The Love Story Behind SpeakinPeeps Voice Overs

Jody and Paul Florkewicz are a couple who loves voiceover acting almost as much as each other!

Before They Met

Paul’s ridiculously checkered background includes working as a technical engineer in one of New York City’s premier post-production recording studios for more than a decade. He worked shoulder-to-shoulder with some of the greatest voice-over artists of the day.

Meanwhile, Jody has a somewhat mysterious history. She worked in the marketing division at the corporate headquarters of one of the world’s largest fashion and cosmetics firms. (If you’ve seen “The Devil Wears Prada,” you get the idea!)

Jody worked more time than she cared to admit, but the time she spent in New York City was unforgettable.

At that time, both Jody and Paul lived in North Jersey in different towns and yet miraculously commuted to Manhattan on the same bus line and route every day!

Love at First Sight

One fateful morning, Jody boarded the #33 bus and as the sun seared through the clouds, immediately caught Paul’s eye.

For him, the heart wants what the heart wants—and she looked cute in her little jean-skirt. At this moment, there was little doubt in Paul’s mind and heart that their destinies would intertwine.

A Fated Meeting

Weeks passed and Paul waited for another chance to see the woman who made his heart skip a beat.

These days, some might classify his conduct as stalking, but 20 years ago—it was romantic.

Thanks to Paul’s insane work hours at the voice-over production studio and Jody’s ice skating lessons after work, their paths finally crossed again late one evening. On the last #33 out of Manhattan that night, the gods provided an opportunity…Paul wouldn’t need another!

They sat next to each other and spoke for the first time that evening. And it was then that the very fabric of space and time were forever altered.

It Must Be (True) Love

When Jody produced a Farside cartoon from her pocket and shared it with Paul, the fate of the universe was sealed.

It turned that this particular cartoon was only truly appreciated and fully understood by three people on Earth: Gary Larson, the author, Jody, and Paul!

To others, it would seem like a single and insignificant event. But for Paul and Jody, it was a sign of the true fundamental commonality of character it represented…the planets had aligned! The cartoon, to this day, hangs framed in Paul and Jody’s home.

The Power Couple Behind SpeakinPeeps Voice Overs

Now that they have found each other, as is said: with time comes knowledge. The couple has discovered a mutual affinity for voice-overs, marketing, and client service. Working together, Jody and Paul have become a virtually unstoppable team. So darn cute and talented—you just have to hire them for your next project!
