The Geography of Nowhere traces America's evolution from a nation of Main Streets and coherent communities to a land where every place is like no place in particular, where the cities are dead zones and the countryside is a wasteland of cartoon architecture and parking lots.

Michael is a distinguished actor on the California Central Coast with a burgeoning audiobook career. With over 20 years of professional theatre experience, Michael has performed in over 75 productions across the country, form New York’s Off Broadway to Tony award winning Shakespeare Festivals. As a narrator, Michael has already made inroads to securing himself as a respected narrator. While narrating ACX titles, he also worked for Beacon Audiobooks, a New York based publishing company. He worked with Simon & Schuster in tandem with the critically acclaimed Folger Theatre in Washington DC to record radio plays of ROMEO & JULIET and HAMLET. With a wide vocal range, Michael can narrate a wide variety of genres: Young Adult, Mystery, Fantasy, Romance, Teen, Memoirs, Poetry, Humor, Erotica, Non-Fiction, Sci-Fi and more. He uses a genuine WhisperRoom home studio booth treated with Owens Corning 703 sound insulation guaranteeing superior home recording sound. AUTHOR COMMENTS: Maria Kuroshchepova – “The job of a narrator is a challenging one within its own right. The job of a narrator trying to breathe life into a story written over a hundred years ago, by a foreign writer from an obscure country, with no action, no adventure, and no dialog to speak of becomes a feat to be reckoned with. Michael undertook precisely such a challenge narrating "Intermezzo" by Mikhailo Kotsubinsky and came through with flying colors. With a perfect blend of subtlety and understated energy, Michael truly opened up the story and made it fresh and fascinating.” Recent Voices include: Greek Gods, Goddesses, Titans, Trojans, and Olympians Down home boys from Mississippi So-Cal Bros An old man trapped in a nursing home A blood sucking Incubus bent on world domination A social worker in purgatory Trans-dimensional mice Architect Teenage boy Teenage girl with a chip on her shoulder New Orleans plantation owner Swedish Vampire Tortured 19th Century Ukrainian poet Off-world military sergeant armed with a laser canon A grand vizier A dog in love with a cat Internet troll A college janitor Guy in a terrible marriage A retired Italian mob boss Pesky 1950s investigator Prostitutes (both high end and low end) Dimensional hopping world hunters Alien Artificial Intelligence ...and so much more.
