My Voice Experience

I was a radio professional for many years, eventually moving into the production room. I have voiced countless promos and commercials for stations in Oklahoma and Dallas / Ft. Worth. I have narrated video presentations from high school bands, to city tourism committees, to family slide shows. I have voiced on-hold menus for a large call center and for a small ministry. Other projects include pre-show theatre announcements, characters for comedy bits, radio imaging packages, Bible readings, and radio news features.

Professional voice actor and narrator. Nominated for an Audio Publishers Association Audie Award in 2012.

I am a stage actor and singer, performing in shows like The Sound of Music, The Music Man, Amahl & The Night Visitors, and My Fair Lady. I have studied long-form improv at The Torch Theatre in Phoenix.

I am a graduate of the Braintracks Audio private study program, created and taught by renowned Los Angeles voiceover coach Nancy Wolfson. She continues as my voiceover coach. I have also studied audiobook narration with award-winning performer and teacher Pat Fraley.
