Experience

I have several years of freelance experience as a voice over artist. I have a home studio where I record, edit, and produce the final product. For audiobooks, I am an Audible Approved Producer (http://audible-acx.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/6779/kw/audible%20approved) with ACX (Audiobook Creation Exchange) where I have narrated several fiction and non-fiction pieces.

I've also provided narrations for business presentations and am a volunteer at the Carnegie Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (under the auspices of the National Library Service, NLS) in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania USA, where I narrate, edit, and produce audiobooks for patrons of the library.

My main delivery can best be described as middle-American, adult and authoritative, but I do have the flexibility of performing other deliveries including voice characterizations and impersonations.
