I started by memorizing and lip-synching comedy routines (age 5), writing my own radio play, singing in musicals, delivering a graduation speech. Since college I've spent twenty years teaching Ancient-Medieval History and presenting to business clients, with audiences between two to two thousand. I live by reading aloud; as an author myself I find it's the best way to proof and polish my drafts, letters and blog posts. And I love hearing the story come alive in real time, trying different approaches to get the most from the tale I'm reading. My acting experience has suited me to thinking about different voices, inflections, and even accents or dialects (meaning fantasy races, aliens, robots). I have strong experience at performing heroic and epic fantasy tales, with large casts of diverse characters, sustained plot arcs, frantic action scenes, and unusual descriptions. I have also performed police procedural, LitRPG, and historical fiction as well as inspirational tracts.

"Fencing Reputation": [Feldspar is] the right kind of crazy—talking to himself, arguing with himself, bargaining with himself as he seeks excitement and danger in the service of Hope... There was no place in the story where I wanted to stop the recording and put it away for a while. The narration was superb with just enough sound effects to lift it above a simple book reading. "Perilous Embraces": Hahn’s greatest strength may be his ability to adopt extremely distinctive voices for his characters... Once again, Hahn’s narration and sound effects richly add to the drama of his story. He is a master of the spoken word and it greatly enhances the experience. Right up to the utterly surprising end.
