I am an experienced actor (SAG-AFTRA). I have recorded a variety of narrations for corporate clients, for both industrial films and live industrial shows. They say I am especially good for technical reads and difficult content.

I have recorded a variety of commercials and have even done several pre-show announcements for theatre productions.

I am an experienced stage actor (AEA member since 1973), having toured the country in Ella, the musical biography of Ella Fitzgerald, playing her manager, Norman Granz.
