Audiobook Narration - People from Bloomington

Working with literature fills me with gratitude. I joined a fantastic ensemble of actors for my 2nd audiobook narration, “People from Bloomington”; a collection of short stories by Budi Darma (translated into English for the 1st time by Tiffany Tsao ).

My short, “Orez”, is a challenging (sometimes dark?) story about love, family, & responsibility.

Please enjoy this short sample, and check out more information about the book and audio from Penguin Random House HERE.

Audiobook Narration - First Pro. Job!

My first audiobook narration is available for download from Penguin Random House Audio.

 

You can find "N****r: The Strange Career of a Troublesome Word" by Randall Kennedy on multiple audiobook platforms. The actual title is uncensored; I'm obscuring it here because the internet is volatile- the book itself makes complex arguments for and against my choice.


This sample is a small selection of the publicly available preview. Thanks to Brian Ramcharan and PRHAudio for the opportunity to enter a new artistic arena; CDM Sound Studios, Inc. for an amazing first recording experience; my director, Robert Kessler, and my PRHAudio mentor: Dan Zitt.
