I have narrated over 500 audio books, I am a staff narrator for Potomac Talking Books in Bethesda, Maryland which sub-contracts (along with several other studios) to narrate books for the blind and physically handicapped program through The Library of Congress. I also work as the Director of Narrator development there.
I have narrated as a volunteer for Reading for the Blind and Dyslexic in Cambridge, MA and, more recently, the Perkins School for the Blind in Watertown, MA for a number of years. I started getting paid for voiceover work in 2009 and began narrating audiobooks professionally earlier this year.
I have narrated several public domain classics, such as White Fang and The Island of Dr Moreau. Late last year, I began working with ACX on more mainstream commercial projects, and have since completed three works: Double Exposure and Burnt Offerings, both by fiction author Michael Lister, and then a playful but education non-fiction title called Badass: The Birth of a Legend by Ben Thompson.
I listened to audiobooks while doing so. “I could do that” I said to myself. So, when I retired in 2009 (after 30 years as an SLP) I took the plunge (and several classes).
A classic American novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald, this is a new audio addition and has been authorized by the Fitzgerald estate.
I love theater and performing. I was in radio for a number of years, so the two gave me a love of telling a story. And always, always, always – the story is the thing!
