On the mic...
Behind the mic...
digital audio editor
Since my days in college radio, I have been onstage, on-screen or on the mic for more than 25 years. Originally from Birmingham, Alabama, I brought my Southern charm and hospitality to New York City with credits including Broadway National Tours, numerous off-Broadway world premieres, and various independent podcasts. I've also been the spokesperson on various commercial campaigns, and have hosted events ranging from large national conventions to outdoor grand openings as well as one-on-one red carpet interviews.
Behind the scenes I have been on stage crews for theater productions as well as solo artists and bands. This has afforded me hands-on experience not only in the maintaining of lighting and audio equipment but in their design and function as well. I've produced a local community news program in addition to editing video segments for broadcast. But it is in audio that I truly shine with a knack for great storytelling and seamless mixes. And I can't wait to bring my podcasting passion and know-how to a creative company and studio.
