Colorado Springs, Colorado, US
Some of my most rewarding voice work has come as a volunteer for the Audio Information Network of Colorado. I have considerable experience with TV and radio promos via live interviews and/or recorded spots for a variety of organizations - from Special Olympics to Kiwanis International.

A lifetime of training and application – from the podium to the sound booth – produces quality sound and a pleasant listening experience for specialty spots or audio books. From the authoritative drill sergeant to the comforting grandfather, I bring a fresh perspective and interpretation to each project. My mantra for oral interpretation, “Expect the unexpected!”, applies both to the projects which come my way as well as my approach to leaving the listener with a most memorable experience.
Following high school I continued my voice training studies by minoring in Speech as an undergraduate. As an adult most of my voice work has been in public speaking, training seminars and sales.
I have received voice coaching through Edge Studio with Linda Jones, Michael Ingram, Danielle Quisenberry and Vanessa Richardson. I have studied under Paul Ruben for audiobooks and I continue to pursue training and coaching to hone my skills and gain valuable feedback.

Through training, practice and application I have the patience and skills to read for long periods which are tantamount to successful reads in audiobooks, documentaries and educational/training materials. Within the audiobooks sector my specialization lies in non-fiction - according to instructor/coach Paul Ruben.
