Alan Philip Ormond
Alan Philip Ormond started his theater career at the age of seventeen in British Columbia, Canada, where he worked in several stage productions. After graduating, he went to England to study acting at East 15 Acting School. Following this, he traveled Europe, where he ran out of money and signed on to a Greek freighter sailing the Mediterranean, Aegean, and Black Seas for a year. He received a rich education in different cultures, world views, and dialects.
Once back in Canada, Alan worked in theater and film, both in front of and behind the lens. On one photographic project on a wild animal ranch he had the opportunity to raise a wild bear cub only a few weeks old that had been separated from his mother. In Barnaby's second year he found him a home at Bear Country USA in South Dakota.
With a downturn in the economy he returned to school to study healthcare, which led him to work in Saudi Arabia for five years. In that time he had the opportunity to travel widely and enjoy many ways of life and outlooks.
With the advent of digital audio, Alan was recently able to return to his passion for storytelling as a narrator. He now resides in Portland, Oregon, with his wife and two kids.
