Journey to the Catskills:
My parents built a house here when I was 9 years old, and we came up almost every weekend and summer. When my wife and I were expecting our first child, we moved up from our New Jersey apartment and built onto a small seasonal cabin. We’ve been here full-time for 17 years!
I am a voice-over performer, audio producer, and educator. I record and produce voice-overs, audiobooks, promos, and podcasts from a studio in the Phoenicia area, and I teach in the department of Digital Media and Journalism at SUNY New Paltz.
Also, audio — haha! — I produce a biweekly Catskills podcast called Kaatscast. Mostly, it’s a labor of love, covering interesting Catskills stories in a format I know well! I also love the outdoors, enjoying nature, and trying to play my ukulele decently.
Doing good work and putting it out into the world. Also, watching my family pursue and succeed at their own passions.
My wife is the cook in our house, and I’m fortunate for that, because if it were up to me, there’d be a lot of nachos and pasta. The pandemic put a pause on our dining out, but we’re starting to get out there again. We just had an extraordinary Friday fish fry at Dixon Roadside, and I’m looking forward to a Peekamoose dinner soon.
