Speaking of education, I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Studio Art from Murray State University. My primary areas of focus were black and white film photography and drawing with both wet and dry media. Spent time in sculpture (loved welding but made some awful welds!), metalsmithing, and woodworking, too. College gave me the opportunity and experience to learn the characteristics and handling of numerous materials, both natural and man-made. Overall, I’m great with my hands and love to build and fix things. Aside from Spanish, I also minored in cultural anthropology for a while and held an office internship at Wickliffe Mounds Archaeological Research Center.
As far as my working career goes, I trod an array of paths. For example: Serving food in restaurants, assembling circuit boards, providing 411 Directory Assistance, touching up and printing large format images, toiling as a legal secretary, supporting mental health services, delivering substance abuse education courses, and shooting still and moving images for a feature-length film.
When I’m not doing VO stuff or taking care of the necessary house puttering, I might be tinkering with WordPress, taking Udemy or Skillshare courses, making digital art, falling down rabbit holes about natural history, conducting experiments in home improvement, posting memes, and bewildering cats.
