"Classy to Sassy"

Mature, textured voice, providing wide range of reads ranging from raspy cool, to elegantly refined. I was born in the U.S. South, raised in the North, and now known to my kinfolk as "that fast-talking Yankee Cousin".
As a former medical/IT consultant, I'm happy to be leveraging my former skills into medical/technical narration projects. Along the way, (and with great coaches) I've discovered a passion and ability to deliver a variety of VO genres and am greatly enjoying this second career.

I've raised two sons, lived all over the United States, traveled abroad, and have continually sought out life-long learning opportunities. With my family and friends, I enjoy biking, hiking, sailing, kayaking, and SCUBA; as well as gardening, theater, and music, currently serving as a trustee for The Las Vegas Philharmonic Orchestra.
