I am a retired educator. After teaching high school for a few years and a stint as a Radio Newsman, I became a Media Specialist. I would train teachers on how to use 16mm films in the classroom, then Video Discs, VHS tapes, DVDs, and finally Streaming Videos into their classrooms.
I always had a passion for audio. As a teenager my friends and I would record ourselves reading books on reel to reel tape machines. I remember my friends and I in my bedroom reading Billy Budd making such a racket by mother yelled at us to quiet down.
Now after expressing myself for 30 years as an actor on our community theater stages, it all comes together as I join the ranks of Audiobook Narrators. I may even record Billy Budd, the right way. Quieter.
