My Voice Experience

I have loved playing with impersonations, voices, and various types of acting and improvisation for as long as I can remember. After playing a few minor roles, and then taking on the starring role of Sweeney Todd during 2006 and 2007, I was sold. I did my first voice-over for a short film starring Allison Mack from Smallville where I played a radio interviewer - and now I am ready for more!!

My Training

I have taken voice lessons with different teachers from the United States, Mexico, and Brazil. I also teach workshops and private lessons on singing, vocal instruments (trumpet, guitar, etc), beatbox, vocal percussion, and rhythm.
