Experience

My first voice-over was several decades ago. I voiced many projects and public service announcements throughout my tenure in school sponsored radio and television. Production and Communications was central to my life during my education. Upon graduation my career took me in a completely different direction.

I have spent the better part of three decades learning and working in medicine. First at the student level of course, then working my way through prehospital medicine all the way up to the physician level.

I currently lecture and consult in medical learning and have been teaching all levels of medical providers for 20-years. Medicine became my passion and I love teaching others the art and science. Part of teaching is stage presence and the ability to command a room. I believe that this is where my background in communication and medicine come together for an excellent integration with voice acting.
