John Patrick Walsh is an experienced on-screen and voiceover actor as well as an audiobook narrator. Originally hailing from the East Coast, Walsh studied improv in Los Angeles with Bill Applebaum and appeared in several local stage productions before landing a role on General Hospital. From there he appeared in various TV and film roles including North Mission Road, 30 Rock and As the World Turns.
Relatively new to the audiobook industry, Walsh has narrated a wide variety of titles including the Hachette multi-voice sports memoir One Magical Sunday by Phil Mickelson. Other titles include Blackstone’s Gravity’s Century: From Einstein’s Eclipse to Images of Black Holes and Zondervan’s Life Changing Love. His voiceover work includes several corporate projects, industrial projects, TV promo spots and a film trailer.
While raising his family in both California and Connecticut, Walsh remains a New Yorker at heart – having graduated from Fordham University, engaged at Lincoln Center, married on Park Avenue and then becoming a Dad at Lenox Hill Hospital, not once but twice. In fact, being Matt and Tim’s Dad is “the very best role of all."
When he’s not busy performing, Walsh enjoys traveling with his family, coaching youth basketball and volunteering as a BookPal for the SAG Foundation. He’s also active with Saint Aloysius Church and The Gridiron Club in New Canaan, CT.
John Seibert Farnsworth’s delightful notes are not only about nature, but from nature as well.
In Nature Beyond Solitude, he lets us peer over his shoulder as he takes his notes. We follow him to a series of field stations where he teams up with scientists, citizen scientists, rangers, stewards, and grad students engaged in long-term ecological study, all the while scribbling down what he sees, hears, and feels in the moment. With humor and insight, Farnsworth explores how communal experiences of nature might ultimately provide greater depths of appreciation for the natural world.
In the course of his travels, Farnsworth visits the Hastings Natural History Reservation, the Santa Cruz Island Reserve, the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory, the H. J. Andrews Experimental Forest, the North Cascades Institute’s Environmental Learning Center, and more.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
"This is a very well-written book made even more enjoyable by an excellent narrator! Narration skills are so important. if the book is not narrated well, it can destroy an audible book. I hope the narrator continues to narrate science books."
"Not a book for the impatient reader/listener. Rather amazed at this ever evolving, abstruse subject and the amount of astronomical dart throwing by so many experts. At least we can taste the complexities while the articulate book narrator leads our curiosity all the way into a black hole, providing an ending.
The narrator eased my dread from start to finish. Thanks."
"This is a good listen for many reasons. Beautifully narrated and a lovingly cooperative family journey. A glimpse into the world of medical uncertainties and determined parents. As a nurse, I am certain that medicine has limitations and horizons yet to be discovered."
