About Me

When I settled in Seattle in 1980 I was fresh out of Summer Rep at the Old Lyric Theatre in Logan, Utah having just received my Master’s degree in Directing from the University of Wyoming. As a Radio/TV/Drama undergrad at Arkansas State University, I had worked as an on-air radio personality and actor. I moved to Seattle and began acting professionally. Then, following the birth of my daughter, I left the performing arts to pursue a more “stable” profession in business. Now, after a long career in telecommunications, I am back with my first love.

In the spring of 2014, long-time theatre friends convinced me to audition for acting roles again. A few months later, in a time warp, I appeared on stage professionally for the first time in over 30 years as Walter Flood in Becky’s New Car by Steven Dietz. After a few scary moments it all seemed way too easy. So, I went home and built a home recording studio to launch my voice acting business. After so much time in front of a microphone in college and grad school, the concept wasn’t quite all the way to Mars. I am a yogi. I lives in Shoreline, Washington and I continue to pursue stage, film, commercial, and voice acting roles. The most recent development in my professional life is the rediscovery of my love of storytelling. This has taken form in my production and narration of audiobooks. It has also inspired me to study the craft of writing.

It was my grandfather who first awakened my love of the oral tradition. He told hunting and fishing stories with such imagery and drama that my young mind was transported.  Now, I find myself searching for that same magic again.

One thought on “About Me

  1. Hi Jamie,
    Thanks for reaching out. I am actually an audiobook narrator, not an author. So, I would be looking for reviews of the audiobook edition including narration and writing, not the ebook. Do you support audiobooks?
