I have a deep love for storytelling.
I grew up an avid reader, but more than that, I was raised listening to stories read aloud. Most nights before bed I grabbed my pillow and ran to the couch where I'd curl up next to my siblings, falling asleep as my mom read from a novel or my dad spun a magical tall tale of his own invention. The best stories lived behind closed eyelids.
As a narrator my goal is simple: to inspire a bit of that same innocent wonder in the listener. To read directly to them. Something intriguing. Something dramatic. Something magical. To take them on an adventure all their own.
So grab your pillow, close your eyes, and let me tell you a story...
Bernard is smart, observant, and annoyed. It's time to confront his friend Michael.
