I have access to garageband and a blue snowball USB microphone

Additional Skills

Aside from lyrical & linguistic eloquence, and the ability to channel my animated nature into my vocal performance,
as a writer, performer and film maker, I have a natural feel for flow and the spellbinding entrancement that is necessary to keep the audience's attention as they, unwittingly, are taken along for the ride.

And did I mention my skillful vocal beatboxing & other mouthnoises?
