Recently, I have completed eight classic audio books, including "Huckleberry Finn," "Treasure Island," "Prince and the Pauper," "Siddhartha," "Metamorphosis" and "This Side of Paradise." I had great joy bringing these stories and characters to life. I think you will find them very compelling listenting!
I became the signature voice in Los Angeles of KCBS/TV, and KHOU in Houston as the Voice of “Channel 11 Listens”. Soon, I was signed to be the signature voice of WCNC, the NBC/TV affiliate in Charlotte, N.C., a happy marriage which lasted more than eight years. Commercial clients include: Labatt’s Beer, as the signature voice for Labatt’s Blue, Kaiser Permanente, Geico and Pfizer.
I began college as a Radio-Television major and have worked professionally in the broadcast industry ever since. Earning a MA in theatre from The Dallas Theatre Center, I produced and directed award winning dramas for radio, then spent several seasons as an actor working in Repertory Theatre in the US and Canada, perfecting my acting skills in many leading roles, while voicing national commercials. Moving to Los Angeles, I quickly established myself as a working actor, starring in major motion pictures such as "Psycho II" and TV shows such as "Grey's Anatomy"
