I can't imagine going into the studio without him."
-Jay O'Callahan

Many successes!

Doug has already helped many professional storytellers and musicians.

  • He has brought people to Boston to record with the team of engineers and digital editors he has assembled.
  • He has also travelled to other parts of the U.S. to help people record close to home.

Doug produced two first-time tapes in 1995. Both tapes won awards from Storytelling World magazine!

"The first time I recorded my tape, I did not use Doug. The results were disappointing. Hiring Doug for my second try was well worth it--because it gave me the tape I wanted!"
-Anne Jennison

Doug's own audio recordings--ten of them--have received many excellent reviews and a Parents Choice Gold Award.
