My Voice Experience

For the last 12 years, I've worked in radio news, and began my career as a broadcaster in the United States Navy for the Armed Forces Network. I've reported the news on radio and television both domestically, and in exotic locales such as Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and Keflavik, Iceland. My voice is heard every day in the Moscow, Idaho market as a reporter. I am the news director for Inland Northwest Broadcasting, which is a family of six locally owned radio stations here on the Palouse. I received my first formal voice training at the Defense Information School in Fort Meade, Maryland. But, I've been a part of theatre and film productions since I was a junior high school student. I've been using my voice artistically then for nearly 20 years. I am a graduate of the Edward R. Murrow College of Communication at Washington State University, an honorably discharge veteran and a lifelong learner. I am ready to bring my experience and desire to communicate with others to your project.
