I am a SAG professional actor, singer, voice actor and have been for many years. I can range from narrative soothing to car salesman high energy, with convincing, concerned delivery when indicated. My voice is mid range. My science background prepares me for technical narration. My voice acting training was with Jim Alburger and Penny Abshire in San Diego and Also Marc Cashman. I did work outs for several years with Jim and Penny. I trained in Classical singing for over 10 years and performed with the Starlight Amphitheatre and San Diego Comic Opera(range High Baritone to 1st Tenor). My theatrical trainiing spans many years starting in 1994 and the last 7 years in studies with the Advanced Professional program at Beverly Hills Playhouse. My voice over workouts continue and I am ready and very able to continue my career.
