George Wendt at JCCC

George Wendt came back to his hometown of Kansas City on August 29, 2010 to emcee for the KCSuperstar contest at Yardley Hall/JCCC.  The event similar to American Idol, in which the students perform to win money for themselves as well as the art department for their high school.  Here is a look at the evening:


Tom Kane – the Voice of the Oscars

I had the privilege of photographing Tom Kane for 435 South Magazine.  He is the voice of the “Oscars”, the voice of “Yoda” from the “Clone Wars”, the Professor in “Power Puff Girls”, among other things.  He lives in Kansas City and commutes to Hollywood for his voice-over roles in various shows.  We were invited to his home and got a first hand look at his sound booth which he does a lot of his roles from as well.  Family man, and all around nice guy!  Big thanks to my Stylist/MUA Staci Broski, and assistant Nathan Choate for coming along and making this photo shoot perfect!
