After college, I did some acting, (Appearing in: “General Hospital,” “Matlock,” “The Dating Game,”) voice-work, hosting, anchoring, and reporting at various Los Angeles cable stations.

Eventually, I packed my bags to embark on a television news career, first heading to Savannah, Georgia for a morning anchor job. I then went on to anchor and reporter in: Santa Fe and Albuquerque New Mexico, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Kansas City, Missouri, and finally Wichita, Kansas, where I have lived since 2004.

After leaving the t-v news industry, I started my own freelance voice-over and on-camera business.  I have voiced hundreds of projects in numerous genres. I have also acted in films including: “Reagan,” starring Dennis Quaid, and “Wild Indian” starring Jesse Eisenberg. T-V appearances have included: “General Hospital,” “Matlock,” “Murder Made Me Famous,” “Snapped,” and “Investigation Discovery.” I have also appeared in dozens of commercials, and hosted numerous shows and videos.
