My Voice Experience

Trained as both a classical baritone and stage actor, I began doing "radio plays" in college, with sporadic forays into radio commercial copy (Kirkland Performance Center) and live announcing (Serial Killers at the Sacred Fools Theatre). I approach every recording from the perspective of an actor, seeking a heartfelt connection to the material. My experience as a classical vocalist brings depth and richness to my voice, and combines with my acting experience to provide stamina and versatility to a recording session.

My Training

Bachelor of Arts (Theatre Major, Music Minor), Western Washington University; including traditional classical stage training, the acting method of Robert Cohen, and classical voice training under Bruce Pullan and Jake Hamm

Graduate of Boston University's Tanglewood Institute for young musicians, with a focus on classical voice and choral training from Leonard Bernstein, Seiji Ozawa, and Michael Tilson Thomas

Private acting training in Stanislavsky, Strasberg, and Meisner methods

V/O Training, Kalmenson & Kalmenson

My Studio Equipment

iMac i3, Garage Band, Blue Snowball Microphone

Additional Skills

I'm an experienced writer of both dialogue and prose. I edited text-based marketing materials for 20th Century Fox for many years, focusing on actors' bios and plot synopses for tv and film. I've written many short comedy sketches for the Los Angeles live late-night Serial Killers at Sacred Fools Theatre, as well as a short novel I adapted into a full-length solo show: A SWEET DEAL.

I also write and compose songs and arrange vocal harmonies, most recently for the experimental theatre group Theatre Movement Bazaar.
