Roger Morford

Statement

My work tells stories - usually other people's stories. In sound.

I am a broker, the middle-person, a conduit between story-teller and listener.

Bringing their stories to life is a privilege

My passion is to inform and entertain. I have ambitions for future projects to discuss social history, community, and popular culture.

So far, I've had an opportunity to learn, to experiment, play, and take risks.
