Biography

Married and father of three beautiful, intelligent and talented daughters, and grandpa to Michael Gregory and Marco Guiseppi Ragland. Veteran of the U.S. Air Force. Voice-over talent at Unique Voice Over. Ran the Chicago Marathon in 2007 to raise money for St. Jude Children's Hospital. Led a mission trip in 2008. In 2009 was diagnosed with cancer. In 2010, while recovering from chemo and radiation, decided to get serious about my voice-over hobby and do what makes me feel the most fulfilled. Since then I've continued to work and invest in my voice-over business and have been blessed with enough work to support my family and make a decent living. The end of January 2015 I celebrated 5 years since the end of cancer treatments and changed my status from Cancer Fighter to Cancer Survivor. I continue to feel God's presence with me throughout this journey...which brings me a sense of peace that is difficult to explain with words.

Felt like I was swallowing my uvula. CT Scan on September 1, 2009 showed tests "within an acceptable range". Biopsy performed on September 17, 2009 showed cancer.
