For nearly three decades I have been narrating audio books. I started out volunteering at The Jewish Guild for the Blind where I recorded Jurassic Park before the film came out, among other titles. In 1994 the Library of Congress took me on as a narrator at American Foundation for the Blind where I recorded over 250 books. While working at AFB I found work with Random House, Simon & Schuster, Penguin, Recorded Books, Hachette, BBC Audio and more. To date I’ve narrated somewhere around 500 titles; I’ve lost count.
I’ve won three Audie Awards for non-fiction, a Scourby Award from AFB and many Earphones from Audio File magazine.
Often I work as an auctioneer helping to raise money for various charitable organizations in NYC. The work is a lot of fun and I’ve developed some wonderful long-standing relationships due to that activity.
When not trying to make a buck I stay pretty busy with keeping body and soul together in Manhattan where I’m a dad, a husband and a dog owner, not always in that order. I’m an avid cyclist, swimmer, amateur guitarist and singer, theatre go-er, and lover of well-told humorous jokes.
I’m a sap for old movies, old T-shirts, old friendships and leaving the old Christmas lights out on the Juliette balcony well into the spring.
There are other things I could say “About Me” but I’ll leave that for if and when we ever sit down over a cup of joe or a pint of Guinness where I can learn “About You.”
