My Voice Experience

I won't lie. I'm an old dog attempting to learn new tricks. Yes, I have done about three voiceovers in my life, all freebies.
However, I've had over 30 years experience as a professional character stage actor at various regional theatres.
Also, I've had training and experience with Readers Theatre and oral interpretation.
I believe that this old dog can still learn some new tricks.

My Training

I have a BA in Speech(Theatre) from Bowling Green State University in Ohio.
Assistant Artistic Director for two years at the BoarsHead Theatre in Lansing, Michigan
See above for further information.

My Studio Equipment

Due to financial restrictions, I do not have my own studio.

Additional Skills

I love performing.
Once a week I do volunteer readings for handicapped adults. Because of recent illnesses I had to cut back on driving time. So, I now do my readings via speakerphone.
