As a Public Information Officer for the Southern Division California Highway Patrol, Rhett became a skilled, respected KABC Los Angeles Channel 7, television and local radio station traffic reporter. Rhett, having delivered traffic reports for eight years, including bilingual Spanish reports for several local Spanish radio stations, developed a gravitate which imparts trust with his delivery. His smooth style inspired high "Q - Score" television viewer and radio listener ratings for his honest, calm, trustworthy and consistent style.
In 1998, Rhett branched out into audiobooks with the assistance of Pat Fraley, Jeffrey Kafer and Scott Brick. Upon separating from the CHP in 2011, Rhett switched gears and applied his vocal talents (not to mention the manners and voices of thousands of people he met including celebrities, state and federal dignitaries, numerous presidents and foreign heads of state) into becoming a versatile and notable audiobook narrator. He has honed his acting skills through workshops with Steven Tobolowsky, Willie Garson, VO Peeps' Anne Ganguzza and Kalmenson & Kalmenson Casting Agency in Burbank, CA. His audiobook skills have been sharpened through workshops and seminars with Scott Brick, Jeffrey Kafer, PJ Ochlan, Hillary Huber, and Sean Allen Pratt. Rhett’s most recent work (The Blood of Emmett Till) has been favorably reviewed by Audiofile Magazine, and he receives an average 4.0 or higher ratings on Audible’s website. He is noted for his smooth calm, consistent delivery that is easy and relaxing to listen to over a long period of time.
Not only is Rhett a gifted narrator, he has had the fortunate opportunity to learn audio engineering, recording, and ADR from the versatile Andy Morris of Buzzy's Recording for two years.
Rhett has narrated for "BeeAudio"; "Curio.io"; is listed with "Deyan Studios"; and has great success on ACX.
Rhett has been noted as a "sound-a-like" for actors Dennis Haysbert and Keith David.
