My Voice Experience

Studied in San Diego with James Alburger for 2+ years in workshops and then in a weekly professional level copy workouts. Also did Advanced Voice Acting workshop with Marc Cashman in Los Angeles.

As a note, I have a B.S. in Zoology from Penn State University, a V.M.D. (doctor of veterinary medicine) from University of Pennsylvania and over 30 years experience in Veterinary medicine which makes me very comfortable with technical jargon.
