Every book has a story to tell. When a book goes to audio, I'm grateful for the publishers and authors who trust me to tell their story well. I'm an AudioFile Magazine Earphones Award recipient who reads fiction and non-fiction for major and indie publishers. My favorite genres are Mysteries/Thrillers, Memoirs, Science Fiction, and Children's literature.

I'm also an audiobook coach for Edge Studio and have led sessions on vocal booth and website design for the highly acclaimed Audiobook Biz Workshop Series presented each year by fellow narrators Scott Brick and Johnny Heller.

​An avid boater who spends much of my free time cruising our lake with family and friends, I also play guitar and am a former radio presenter and proposal development professional with extensive commercial copy and technical writing experience.

The heart of our studio lies in the Audio Technica AT4047/SV microphone. When paired with the Grace Design m101 preamp and run through a Presonus ioStation 24c audio interface and production controller with audiophile-grade digital converters, it creates a superior recording and listening experience. Along with the latest version of Presonus' Studio One DAW, this setup also creates a smooth and efficient workflow.​


Critical reference monitoring is done through Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro 80-ohm closed-back studio mixing headphones and a pair of 5" KRK ROKIT RP5 G4 (Generation 4) bi-amp monitors. This is all inside of a 4' X 6' WhisperRoom isolation booth lined with broadcast quality acoustic treatment. This includes ATS acoustic panels and 4-foot bass trap, augmented with additional Auralex LENRD bass traps and Auralex and Next Acoustics studio foam panels. (Those are the ones that look like the inside of my brain.​​

Directing all recording sessions is our beloved antique Pinocchio from Venice who, when the mic is off, enjoys playing his Dimebag Darrel blown glass replica Dean guitar. But, I do sometimes wonder if he can be trusted.
