My Training

Since 2010, I've worked in a busy voice over recording studio as an engineer. However, my strong background in theater, improv, choir, and barbershop quartet inevitably brought me to the other end of the microphone as a performer.

After years of intently observing and working with the masters of voice over, legendary voice directors, and producers, I've earned my breakout role on the 2nd season of Disney Junior's Sheriff Callie's Wild West as a mischievous beaver named Jethro.

Since then, I have continued to hone and excel at the craft I love.

My Studio Equipment

Neumann TLM 170 microphone, Vintech 573 preamp, Chandler Little Devil compressor, Magix Sequoia 12 recording software, iZotope RX 5 software, Skype capable. 

Studio Record Setup:

I'm also affiliated with a VO recording studio (www.soundworks.tv) that I have regular access to and is less than 10 minutes from my house.
