Vinnie got his start when he was a kid by imitating cartoon characters. Mel Blanc was an inspiration to much of his early learning on reruns of Looney Tunes. Practicing funny voices in front of the mirror led to Vinnie throwing his voice in class and making noises that would perplex his teachers. While this often resulted in him getting in trouble, Vinnie also realized the entertainment value behind his antics, and began pursuing voice over as a career.
Before long, he began lending his voice to an assortment of characters and is now regularly creating new ones.
