IamA Former Homeless Man to Commercial Voice Actor Ted Williams AMA!
My short bio: Most of you know the story considering reddit was one of the ways my story went viral in 2011, but for those who don't know, my name is Ted Williams. I used to be homeless and struggled with drugs, but after someone at the Columbus Dispatch recorded a video of my "Golden Voice" and posted it online, my life went viral.
Since recovering, I started a The Ted Williams Project, a not-for-profit organization. We raise money to support homeless communities by providing necessities for homeless shelters, and outreaches.
I also co-wrote a book.
Recently, I narrated a compelling documentary called Houseless.
I'll start answering questions around 4PM EST. Also, thanks for the reddit gold from yesterday.
My Proof: Here's proof for the internet
Just wanted to provide an update on why nothing has been answered yet -- We decided to do the AMA in an audio interview style since so many of you love the "Golden Voice" -- Just finished up with the first batch of questions and we'll be leaving them in the comments!
EDIT: Just finished up the first and second round of questions -- We'll be taking a break for a bit but look through the responses and see if your question is answered! special thanks to /u/grant0 for transcribing these.
