I am a voice actor, musician, and educator with a heavy focus on audiobook narration. I have worked on over 150 audiobooks as a narrator, director, producer, or mastering engineer. I am also the co-founder of Open Book Audio, an audiobook production and distribution company helping independent authors and small publishing houses get their titles recorded and distributed to digital audiobook retailers worldwide.
In addition to audiobooks, I have done voiceover work for commercials, industrials, and educational software for clients like Microsoft and Novell. I have also spent many years teaching theatrical voice and singing both privately and through major universities. And, of course, I took a detour through the breakneck world of technology startups as a project and program manager. (Just to, you know, shake things up a little.)
I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Brigham Young University in Music Dance Theatre, and an MBA in project management from Walden University. I am located in the greater Seattle area, and live happily here in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with my Golden Retriever, Luke. When I’m not
talking to myself in a padded room narrating audiobooks, I enjoy gardening, cooking, writing and performing music, and I run a popular blog and YouTube channel about fountain pens.
