I love media of all kinds; as a kid I was a voracious reader (of anything I could get my hands on, especially Science Fiction) and from an early age I was fascinated with the storytelling possibilities inherent in TV, film, and radio. I've been fortunate to be part of the media during this historic shift in the way we live, communicate, and both create and consume information and entertainment. My career has encompassed traditional media (radio, print), and new media (eLearning, video & animation for the Web, YouTube, blogging), and I'm still learning and growing, most recently establishing myself in the eLearning field as an Instructional Designer and content developer, as well as continuing to do voice over work. It's a great time to be alive.
