    I was contacted by a fan named Denise J. some time ago who wanted to get the skinny on when new audiobooks narrated by me were coming down the pipe. This prompted me to say “hey, I should probably post about that on my site”, which also prompted me to say “hey, I haven’t posted […]

    Dinonauts – The Future is Prehistoric

    Every so often comes a project that speaks to the 12 year old in me and I get all squiggly giggly like a school boy on a tater tot and sugar high. I have been fortunate enough to have been hired as the Director of Voice Talent for an upcoming feature length animated film called […]
