Hi Laila,

I tend bar in Pearl River, NY and I load UPS trucks in the morning. If I can find compatible health benefits UPS would be history. I trained with Linda Jones & Michael Ingram at edge. Great teachers. Awesome people. As of now bartending is my primary (gotta eat) and voiceover secondary. The goal is to reverse this. I'll keep you in mind about the studio, currently using a Port-A-Booth.

Stay vocal.

Hey Laila,

Thanks for the connect. I've just recent finished my demos with Edge, I'm waiting for the finished product so I can get my new website up and running. Eager to get the next phase of this process. Also trying to get my work situation in order to free up time to do this trade. Just taking it one day at a time. Take care.
