"Flexible, directable, believable, comedic storyteller, characte"
Jeffrey Hedquist

He's flexible, directable, and a quick read. He's an actor who "gets" the meaning of what you wrote and brings new life into your words. Because of his extensive experience and vocal versatility, he can, if you wish, give you many different interpretations in several voices. His experience as a standup comic, storyteller, air personality, performing songwriter, and improv entertainer has given him a great sense of comedic timing and audience relatability.
