Multimedia Content Creator
I'm a multimedia content creator specializing in audio and radio production who believes theater of the mind is just as important in 2020 as it was before "video killed the radio star." My heroes in high school weren't charismatic movie stars or world famous singers but voice actors who crafted compelling characters for commercials, cartoons, and video games without ever showing their face on screen. Their work ignited a flame that's still burning today. I want to renew passion for all kinds of audio content worldwide as a multimedia creator and make a splash in the diverse landscape of the 21st century.
