An audiobook narrator since 2009, I've also worked in film and theatre as well as behind the mic for CNN and CNN International, and  award-winning documentaries. Theatrical experiences include many years with the Atlanta Shakespeare Company and as a puppeteer with the Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta.

A lifelong learner, I'm also a lifelong teacher. I've taught public school music, worked as a music therapist, taught acting, and for the past 20 years I've been an adjunct professor at the Emory School of Law teaching storytelling and persuasion to third year law students. By teaching my students to be artful advocates, I am having an impact on social justice. I bring all this to the wide range of nonfiction (business, self help and University Press) books I narrate.
