Narrated by Jonathan Sharp
I was born in southern New Mexico in the nexus between Area 51, Trinity Site, and Spaceport America. I attended culinary school in Portland Oregon and have managed a number of restaurants, cafés, and bakeries. By day I am the produce manager of a natural grocery store. By night I practice narration and voice acting while dreaming of a future filled with world travel via sailboat, along side my lovely wife Paige.
