Highlights

I have loved to read out loud since I was about 7 years old. I did theater in HS, college, and community, always earning Best Supporting Actor. I was a newscaster on my ship in the Navy. I've performed in church cantatas and sung in public. With this background I realized that a career in audio would fit perfectly. I therefore started my own audio book recording business in 1999 and issued my first book that year. It sold so well, I recorded another 2 the following year, and can now boast 50 audiobooks I have personally recorded, from children's books, to historical fiction, to biographies, to overtly Christian titles and sermons.

Service Description

I have been told I have an uncanny ability to interpret the intent of authors concerning how the text sounded in their head when they were writing it. I have a very neutral Ohio accent and what has repeatedly been described as a very "pleasant" speaking voice.

Voice Over Clients

Todd Wilson - author of 7 Christmas stories he wrote and I recorded:
Got the CDs and my wife and some of my kids have already listened to some of them. Here's the gold....my wife thought they were awesome (she's not easily impressed).
Continued once the author had listened - OK - About the recordings: WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I loved each one. In fact I think you made them better. I listened like I had never even heard them before. I was moved by the message and the way you presented them. In fact, you read them like I wrote them...same inflection... pauses...where I thought they should be. Anyway, I thought they were awesome. I imagine little kids listening to them a dozen times during the months of December.

Most of my other work has been public domain with a deceased author.
