My Training

I have been working behind the board with some of LA's top voiceover talent for many years mixing trailers, movies, ads, what have you. I am also a highly experienced protools post sound supervisor, with an expansive knowledge of sound design and music composition.

My Mom and Dad were both pros in the music industry. I am past President Warner Center Toastmasters, one of the largest such clubs on the West Coast.

My enunciation, diction, and copywriting are honed by a journalism minor and years of marketing, public speaking, and multiple website management and development.

Four years of college, no degree. I have been taking paying pro audio clients since 1980.

Former employers: Lucasfilm, Bang Zoom Entertainment, Tapestry Films, Calico Ltd, Intercom, and Music Associates.
