I worked for decades both on live theatrical stage in Cleveland and Rochester, MN and also with a classic radio theater group, the Rochester Radio Theatre Guild which toured many cities in Minnesota. Although I can do character voices and a couple of accents, I'm best known for bring to life classic radio high-suspense dramas, such as "Three Skeleton Key," "The Pit and the Pendulum," episodes of "Escape!," and "The Shadow." I've also done work for a book on tape.

Worked in live theatre since beginning in 1985 at the Cleveland Public Theatre. Continued live theatre with The Rochester Repertory Theatre and Rochester Civic Theatre. Performed, directed and wrote live and recorded radio theater from 1988 to 2000 with the Rochester Radio Theatre Guild. Most of that work was classic scripts, but a few were original. Equipment set-up was a crucial part of any of our performances.
I Co-founded and was Artistic Director of Vertigo Theatre Factory 501(c)3 from 1999-2007, which meant acting, directing, producing live theater as well as writing and directing films (We sometimes did stand-alone films as well as often combining them with our live theatrical productions) as well as editing both visuals and audio sfx, voice and music. Marketing and design were also on my shoulders while the theater flourished.
I was asked to participate in an audio book and given the lead role in "Franklin City" by an online friend, CA Hobson.
I don't know that it's industry-related or not, but it might help you to know that my formal education is a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the Cleveland Institute of Art. My appreciation of the Arts is far-ranged, both visually, theatrically and cinematically. I've studied Alfred Hitchcock, Jackson Pollock, John Ford, Mark Rothko, Orson Welles, Walissy Kandinsky Werner Herzog, Charlie Chaplin, The Wyeths, the Marx Brothers and The Coen Brothers.
