Back in 2014, when Curt was teaching Russian at the University of South Carolina, he started narrating videos for his students – to help with those late night, pre-midterm jitters. Before long people were commenting not just on Russian grammar, but on his delivery: clear, but reassuring and encouraging. And when someone who'd never seen him before recognized his voice at a national conference ("Hey, are you the guy from that YouTube channel...?"), Curt realized that it was time to take narration seriously.

Since then he's been fortunate to hone his craft at VoicetraxSF with teachers like Samantha Paris, Thom Pinto, Jeannie Elias, Tina Morasco, Peter Dunne, Vicki Baum, Chuck Kourouklis, Brian Sommer, and many more. Curt now works from a home studio (Shure KSM32, Scarlett interface, Reaper DAW) near San Francisco. 

That YouTube channel is still going strong with well over 31,000 subscribers, and Curt is eager to bring the same clarity and thoughtful, positive energy to your e-learning and narration projects.
