My Voice Experience

NTRB--North Texas Radio for the Blind
I currently co-host READER'S DIGEST and have read for, hosted and co-hosted, programming for THE ECONOMIST and for THE DALLAS MORNING NEW/FORT WORTH STAR TELEGRAM on North Texas Radio for the Blind both in the "live" studio and the sound booth.

In addition I helped produce and present Valentine's Day programming for "The Eyes of North Texas" based upon my great-grandparents' love letters from during the Civil War.

I have also recorded Audio Books for the Blind. A Radio Theater production is in the works as well.

In the past I have recorded jingles for Irby Chevrolet, PSA's for the Chinese Golden Acrobats and Plaza Theater as well as numerous Radio Spots and TV Voice Overs for Bill Fegan Attractions.

My Training

B.A. in Directing (acting specialization) SWTSU
Minor in Speech (stage dialects)

I have gone from being a performer with Ralph, the Swimming Pig, at Acquarina Springs in San Marcos, Texas to portraying "the Assistant Attorney" when Joc Ewing was declared dead on DALLAS (and EVERYTHING in between.)

Additional Skills

I sang with St. Michael's and All Angels Episcopal choir (the largest in the nation at the time) for 7 years.

I presently co-host READER'S DIGEST at North Texas Radio for the Blind and run Karaoke at a neighborhood pub in Oak Cliff. I also continue to host an annual Variety Show benefit I started for LEGACY FOUNDER'S COTTAGE (an AIDS Hospice in the Oak Cliff section of Dallas) six years ago. In two and a half hours, we manage to raise a little over $2K per year consistently from a venue with a maximum capacity of 40.

I pulled down and chose the the articles and edited the copy for THE ECONOMIST broadcast for North Texas Radio for the Blind for 4-5 months until the original host was able to come back and continue to do the same with READER'S DIGEST presently.

I am just now wrapping up an Audio Book for NTRB and have agreed to schedule another to read for them in the very near future.

My current project is a Civil War piece, MAGNOLIA MEMOIRS, (an expanded version of my Valentine's Day Program) gleaned from my great-grand parents' love letters, which I am developing for stage and Radio Theater. Eventually there will be a book to publish all of the letters along with relevant historical information about the places from which they were writing.
