My Voice Experience

I did my first voice over as an eight year old for a Coca Cola commercial, though the audio was scrapped and they used adults instead of children. Rejection right off the bat thickened my skin.
I returned to voice over in college, dubbing a scene for a friends' film class. Since then, I've dedicated my time to poetry readings for Voetica.com, a non-profit archiving of classic poetry. My goal is to work in the industry full time, a la Nolan North, one of the most versatile voice talents out there.

My Training

Over ten years private vocal training, undergraduate degree in Theatre Arts from CSU, Chico, voice over recording for student films and Voetica.
