The Night Owl
Audio Producer / Editor
Why do I call myself "Night Owl"? With the last name of "Hooten," my family has always had a fondness for owls.
And I'm a bit of a night person. It's not uncommon for my clients to notice their projects were delivered at 2 AM.
I've been making my living with a microphone and a word processor for the better part of three decades.
Of course, thirty years ago I used a typewriter and reel-to-reel tape deck.
In fact, my first news stories were written on a
manual typewriter, and hey, that wasn't THAT long ago!
Most of my career has been in radio broadcasting, but I also toured the country as a game show host for a few years.
In Reno, I often MC'd shows and events for local casinos.
Since 2010 I have been a full time freelancer. Sometimes I miss the excitement of doing live radio
and being around fellow broadcasters. Radio people are fun to work with.
On the other hand, I enjoy the freedom of working at home on my own schedule.
From my home studio I produce voice-overs, edit podcasts, and narrate audio-books.
A few years ago I started writing books, too. My English Teacher mom would be so proud.
