My Voice Experience

I've done a commercial spot for Hallmark Cards and some VO work on some short films I've worked on. I have also done some live narrations for plays which were very well received.

"Kid" by William Nedved directed by Mark Fleischer was winner of the 9th annual SKETCHBOOK; New American Fable. You can see the play here:


My Training

My Voice over training has been workshops provided through SAG/AFTRA and using the KMRC resource center for auditions.

My tether training includes The Second City Conservatory, Annoyance, IO Theatre and the Victory Gardens Training Center.

I also play mandolin and take classes with the Old Town School of Folk music which has helped me understand where to place the notes and where to find places to play by ear.

My Studio Equipment

I can use the KMRC for auditions and if booked can work with some local studios I know based on your requirements.

Additional Skills

I have over 15 years of experience selling both high tech instruments and software used in FDA and EPA related industries so I understand technology.

I've lived in Montana and spent time in the out doors Hiking, Skiing and Sea kayaking so I am comfortable imagining the out doors.

In college I took part in a research project on the Yellow Bellied Marmot and graduated with a degree in Environmental Studies from the university of Kansas.
