I am new to I have 30 years experience as a professional musician and spoken word artist on concert and theatrical stages and in the recording studio. I am also a sound engineer and have recorded 10 music and 5 spoken word CDs that have sold over 500,000 copies worldwide.

Winner - Best Spoken Word Recording of 1995 from the National Association of Independent Record Distributors
for \"Storyteller.\"
Finalist - Best Spoken Word Recording of 1997 from National Association of Independent Record Distributors for \"Finnegans Wake.\"

My life’s work on stage and in the studio is to captivate an audience, to win their trust, and to make them believe in the story. All voice-over creations - everything from a 15 second drop-ins to a full audio book recording - are stories. My warm, dramatic voice, my musical and theatrical experience and my studio production skills will bring your stories to life.
