Edward Luhn - Narration

Highlights

Medical terminology is my specialty. I'm not a doctor (I've played one on TV), but 25 years of medical transcription have conferred upon me the ability to say "esophagogastroduodenopathy" with ease and conviction.

All technical, educational and how-to work is a joy for me. I love explaining things, and I'm one of those people who loves to share fascinating facts. I know things about kangaroos that you wouldn't believe. Think Cliff Claven with actual knowledge, or Wilson Wilson with a full face.

I can bring a sharp sense of humor and a deep rooting in improvisation to copy that has room for or need of some extra ideas, something a little bit off-center and even startling.

I also have my training and love of Shakespeare to bring to my work. So, if you ever have a need for an improvised Elizabethan medical journal, I'm just your man!
