Three-Time Best Performance of the Year Nominee, in both Fiction and Non-Fiction.
A warm, relatable voice trusted by publishers and periodicals like: Penguin Random House, Audible, The Wall Street Journal, The Economist, Macmillan Books, North Atlantic Books, Owl House Books, iUniverse, Spotify, Spectrum Audiobooks, and many more...
...with over fifteen years of professional experience, elite performance training from the MFA Graduate Acting Program at NYU Tisch, and a recording studio outfitted with the highest quality equipment and software...
...whether your book is a sprawling epic with a full cast of characters, a rich and empowering self-improvement manifesto, a highly technical journalistic exploration, a gripping and sentimental memoir, or something else entirely--I will use all of the faculties at my disposal to honor your story with the narration it deserves.
Because each story is unique, each collaboration needs to be treated so as well. As such I would encourage you to reach out with the details of your book via a private job invitation, and I will work with you to tailor a production experience and narration style suited to your needs--whether you're an author publishing yourself or working with a publisher, or if you are a producer working on behalf of an author.
I look forward to hearing more about you and your story!

Not quite. This project is representative of a Per Finished Hour (PFH) rate. Meaning an hour of completed audio--including preparation, consultation, recording, editing, post production, and mastering--would be $375. (i.e. a 10 hour book is ~$3750)
A full consultation to determine how my narration can serve your book; sample recordings to confirm the tone and performance, and for adjustments; and all preparation, recording, editing, and mastering of your book to distribution standards.
To start, I'll provide up to 10-15mins of sample recordings for review and approval (often ~5 pages of important sections/characters). After the sample's are approved, further revisions will be charged the agreed PFH rate--excepting mistakes/errors.
This depends on the length of your book and any preparation it may require. However, often I can return a 12 hour, or ~100k word book, in ~3-6 weeks. If you are working with a production team on your end, that can reduce turnaround time.
I can provide anything you may need! I'm quite comfortable with Audible and ACX production standards, but if you have specific needs just let me know.
I have read and performed in all genres: Sci-Fi, Self-Improvement, Non-Fiction, Fiction, Memoir, and more.
If needed we can have a consultation call to better coordinate details for the book. Should you or a director/engineer like to be present for the duration of recording, that is also possible via SourceConnect, or any other connection platform.
If you have a specific question please don't hesitate to get in touch directly! I'm happy to accommodate any number of custom requests and ideas.
