HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
I joined the stage acting community here in Seattle in 2002, after having been away from the stage for about 30 years. In 2008 I took part in a voice acting workshop, and found that I have a knack for telling a story. Right then, I knew that this was the thing for me. Life often moves slowly, as it did for the ensuing few years, leading to my transition, in January of this year, to being a full-time voice actor.
