Tsarouhas credits the bulk of his experience as a voice actor to the experiences he gained working with WVUD.
During his tenure with the campus radio station, he served as production director overseeing a team of eight in writing, recording, voicing and producing public service announcements for broadcast.
All voices in Insurgency -- including characters for both teams, objective and headquarters dialogue for both teams, and enemy voices within the game’s cooperative play mode – were recorded by Tsarouhas, who also wrote the dialogue. His voice is also featured as that of the instructor within the game’s training mission.
Tsarouhas, who graduated in 2013 with a bachelor's degree in mass communication, said he hopes to continue working as a voice actor in video game, radio, television and animation voice over in the immediate future.
