Personal Quote:

Happiness is as a butterfly which when pursued is just beyond the grasp. But if you will stop and sit quietly, it may alight upon you. (Borrowed from Nathaniel Hawthorne). Our minds are the strings which catch the rhthmic vibrations of the Universal Mind and respond in the music of time and space.


Moved to Lake Oswego, Oregon in Portland area due to quality of life issues. Doing voiceover for radio, TV and industrial as well as films and TV roles for projects filming in the Northwest. See more »
