I took my first voice over class in the mid-90's in NYC. When I first moved to LA in 2000, I had the good fortune of meeting and being tutored by the great Don Lafontaine.

More voice over education with classes at Kalmenson& Kalmenson in Burbank, and also worked in the web production dept at 89.9 KCRW in Santa Monica.
