My Training

BFA in Drama, M.Ed with a specialization in Theatre. I have read the news as an on-air anchor, done theatrical and musical shows and commericals requiring all sorts of characters of various races and stages of life.

I taught school as a Peace Corps volunteer in West Africa and had to learn their dialect of English just so the students could understand me. I have written and directed over 20 plays for competition, some of which have been performed on television--a few of which are marketed as audio books.

My Studio Equipment

As a singer, actor writer and director, I have spent a lot of time in the studio--doing commercials and, most recently original music and cover tunes. I know have the capability of creating broadcast quality digital recordings in my studio. Equipment includes several Macintosh computers, a Mackie Mixer, Roland Amps, high end wireless (AudioTechnica) and handheld microphones and recording programs such as Sound Studio, Garageband, Audacity, for delivery as AIFF, AAC, Wave Mp3 or lessloss formats to the client. I am webmaster for several performing musicians and actors and artists and also have the capability to upload audio to webpages or email them to clients as needed. Check out the video work at

Additional Skills

I like people. I like what I do for them...and it shows. I am positive, creative and (so I have been told by hundreds of clients) very easy to work with. I love working with people who know what they want, but if a client is not sure EXACTLY what he/she wants, I have the ability to extrapolate from what little data they can supply to help them discover their desires. I am self sufficient and a turn-key shop. I have the experience and equipment in-house to make almost any project come to life.

Additionally, because I am also a booking agent with musicians and actors artists that can from Bach to Basie, I offer access to live musicians and creative resources that less experienced talents can't tap.

In conclusion, I honestly say that I can make your project both professional and fiscally efficient because I love what I do and do it well.
