"a one-man vocal universe"--TimeOut New York. My specialty voices include imperious gods, monsters, warriors, giants, dark lords, animals, elves, dwarfs, wizards, kings, demons, generals and heroes drawn from 30 years creating voices as a master storyteller performing epic tales. From the folkloric side of my work, I offer a wide variety of compelling and comic voices for children's productions. I am excited to create new voices built around character requirements for videogame and cartoon productions.

I draw on 31 years of experience in a highly specialized business--performance storytelling in the "bardic" style, that is, with character voices and narrations. I've won Indie, Golden Headset, Parents' Choice and Storytelling World awards among others for my story audios and continue to tour nationally, performing for universities, schools and organizations. My talent is fusing an imaginative, fictional mind with a versatile voice gift.
