Local Audiobook Narrator to read at Jacobsen's Books
Matt will also read selections from two local authors' books: Breaking Chains by R. Gregory Nokes who makes his home in West Linn; and Aetna Adrift by Erik Wecks from Vancouver.
"Usually audiobook narrators are just heard and not seen, so we are excited for Matt to be able to share his voice with a live audience," says Amanda Woodruff of Rip City Research & Audio, the Tigard-based company that recorded Silver Bullet.
Matt Patterson is a former fireman, Yosemite backcountry rescue ranger and rescue diver. His work as an extreme first responder and his love for the outdoors brings a passion to his work that can only come from firsthand experience and knowledge of adventure. He specializes in adventure, science-fiction, and stories of survival. Matt is known for his interpretation of descriptive imagery and placing the listener in the action.
The Wednesday, August 20th reading will begin at 7pm. Light refreshments will be served.

About Rip City Research & Audio
Rip City Research, located in Tigard, Oregon was founded from the need among voice professionals for accurate pronunciations with a quick turnaround. Founders, Amanda and Erinn, having worked as individual proofers and researchers, knew that there was an obvious advantage to be had in working as a team, combining their language skills and resources. They found that their narrators often needed additional support in proofing, editing and mastering, so they pulled together a team of seasoned audio professionals and expanded into boutique audiobook production.
