John has narrated over 260 audiobooks. His smooth-toned narration and story-tellers-ease highlight his productions. John's versatile array of character voices and skill with accents is on display with all of his work. He is a lover of the well-written sentence and the art of reading them. Although SciFi, Thriller/Suspense and Fantasy make up most of his work, John is a true genre-hopper working with publishers and independent writers alike.

"My job is to guide the listener on a smooth road that gently rises and falls and curves and effortlessly moves them toward a destination. No potholes, no bumps in the road. Maybe a slight pause as we push in the clutch and shift gears.  Then when it calls for it, we rip a hard right into the corn field."
