The narrator
Following a 40-year career with IBM in technology, management and consulting, Tim Danko has successfully created a second career as an audiobook narrator.

Tim's IBM experience provided a broad range of business experience in sales, marketing, strategy, planning, operations, organization, management, and leadership. His varied assignments took him to Europe, Japan, and China.

Tim and his wife live in Central Pennsylvania.  Tim practices Tai Chi and enjoys an ongoing chess competition with a lifelong friend. He has been a devoted Trekker since the first episode of the original series.

Tim is a member of the Mental Health Ministry at his local parish church, where he also contributes his skill in technology and audio production.
Tim has completed over 35 audiobooks, working with Blackstone, Emerald House, Two Words Publishing, Crossroad Press, and a number of self-published authors. He is the narrator of choice for the Peter Brandt series written by Martin Roy Hill.

His baritone voice conveys authority and expertise. Director Christine Pierce Rooney says "Tim has a voice of authority. People want to believe what he says."

Tim has studied with many of the premier narrators and coaches including Scott Brick, Pat Fraley, Sean Pratt, Paul Alan Ruben, Carol Monda, Shannon Parks, and Joel Froomkin.

His home studio is modelled after a mastering studio and built with guidance from John Brandt and GIK Acoustics.

From the listeners

For Empty Places..."Once I started this book - I could not stop as I was completely drawn in. The narrator did a great job in pacing and ratcheting up the tension through his vocal skills"

For The Last Refuge..."This is a great sequel and am looking forward to more adventures with Peter Brandt. The narrator, Tim Danko, is perfectly suited to this story. He has a great tenor voice which embodies exactly as I would imagine the battle-scarred Peter Brandt."

For The Fourth Rising..."A book to appeal to conspiracy theorists.  Simply written, it is an easy read, made increasingly enjoyable by the narration of Tim Danko. His p!easant sounding voice is well modulated, with individual voicing s for the disparate protagonists, and he reads with an understanding of the text."

Living in Victory...Through the Power of Mercy
by Steve Gallagher

The quest to attain sexual purity is the #1 battle Christian men face in the 21st Century. The message of this timely book is that you need not settle for a fear-driven form of freedom when an abundant life of victory in Christ is yours for the taking. The secret to victorious living is to tap into God's great storehouse of mercy for one's own needs, and then act as a conduit for that power. Real victory occurs when a person becomes a weapon in the hands of a powerful God against the legions of hell.
