I am a radio and stage playwright who employs voice, music, and sound
effects to create worlds before your very ears. I'm a seasoned (holiday-seasoned!) radio drama performer and educator who hosts this
information-rich website to share the craft and joy of telling stories via sound.
I have been doing radio plays professionally for over 25 years--over 2500 shows--including for public radio, audiobooks, theaters, museums, schools and colleges across the world. I'm also known for my Sparx Audio Adventure educational presentations. While I live in Los Angeles California, I travel far and wide to perform and teach.
This RuyaSonic Radio Play Resources website is one of the most extensive collections of do-it-yourself information regarding radio drama and sound effects to be found on the Internet. BTW: Ruya means "dream" and this site seeks to deliver dreams via sonic artistry.
Please note that the scripts, music, and sound design packages featured here are available for to license for performances.
