I have performed in plays in plays since grade school thru high school. My formal training began at Grambling State University (1970) where I studied Speech and Drama and performed in various plays, originals (Judi Mason-Williams/writer) and standards along with various tours (northern and southern states) for five (5) years. From there I moved to Cleveland OH. where I continued to study and perform with the Karamu House (I worked with James Pickens of Greys Anatomy) and Cuyahoga Community College (Phone hidden)) under some of the notable local directors for seven years(7). Then I moved to Dallas TX. where I continued to study and perform at the Junior Black Academy for three (3) years where I worked with more Hollywood types (Ester Rolle, Al Popwell, Juanita Moore). From there I moved to the San Francisco, Oakland, San Jose Bay Area. I presently reside in Livermore Ca. I've raised and directed various community productions in Hayward Ca., in those I taught my acting technic, which included some voice characterization. At 60 years old I believe my transition to voice overs will be with minimal adjustments.
