George currently works for Edge Studio as Director of Technology. His VOStudioTech.com service department assists anyone who records voiceover with tech support, training, studio design, and audio processing templates.

George is a 1997 graduate of Virginia Tech with a Bachelor's degree in Music and Audio Technology with a Minor in Communications. George went on to acquire considerable expertise in music recording by working with various musicians and artists in the Philadelphia area, and gained broadcast engineering experience working at 94 WYSP (now WIP) as the remote engineer for the NFL Eagles Radio Network.

From a handful of satisfied clients, George has now built his reputation working solely with voice-over studios and clients. He is globally considered a top authority in voice-over recording technology, investing thousands of hours researching studio design, recording equipment, and creating training materials for voice actors. Among his many successful clients are the late Don LaFontaine, Bill Ratner, Melissa Disney, Randy Thomas, Joe Cipriano and Scott Rummell.

In June 2013 Whittam merged his company VOStudioTech with Edge Studio in New York, NY. He produces a weekly vlog Whittam's World where he answers technical questions from the viewers, reviews products, and covers trade shows from NAB to WoVOCon. George presented at the 2016 NAB Broadcast Engineering Conference's Broadcast Plant Facilities Design on "Efficient Small Voice-over Booth Acoustic Design".

Whittam is producer and co-host with Dan Lenard of the webcast Voice Over Body Shop. This video show, live-streamed on Ustream weekly and available for reply on Youtube and as a Podcast, covers all aspects of the voiceover industry, but primarily the technical requirements of home studios. There's always a humorous touch, think Car Talk for VO!
