My Voice Experience

I voiced the "Groundskeeper" on My little Pony. Recently I've done commercials for "Shoulder Buddies", "Classic Rock CFNR" radio station , The "Halo Effect" with The DVI Group and "Lucina AX-09" with Roland USA.

I have started work in Voiceover acting a completely unique acting experience and I love it. I have trained with voicing coaches Bob Burgen, James Alburger, Deb Munro and Pat Fraley. With their training and guidance I became inspired to become a voiceover artist. My first job was for Edmonton's "West Edmonton Mall" which was used on all major radio stations in Edmonton and announced every half hour at the mall. Once I heard myself everywhere I was hooked. Later I played a young boy named Dylan on a series called "Buddy and Max". That series introduced me to Deb Munro who suggested I audition for a podcast called "Silent Universe". I landed the role of Isaac Walker, the rough and tough but kicking leader of a group of rebel mercenary's check it out @. I have done a number of radio spots for NAIT "Norther Alberta Institute of Technology" advertising "Education for the real world". I currently update the Edmonton Shaw Conference Center phone system on a weekly basis.

Additional Skills

I have been involved in acting since high school starting with the lead character in Cyrano de Bergerac in the 11th grade. In 2002 I attended Red Deer College and took the Motion Picture Arts (MPA) program. I graduated from the Red Deer College MPA program with honors in 2005.

In 2006 I had my best roll yet as an elf in a comic trio for a Christmas movie called "Santa Baby" staring George Wendt and Jenny McCarthy. It was trilling, nerve racking, frightening and I would do it again. Since then I have worked on a television show called Mixed Blessings on APTN. In 2008 I was cast in a show called “Caution May Contain Nuts” also airing on APTN, a sketch comedy show in which I am able to portray many different characters. APTN has picked up the show for a second season and we finished shooting 13 episodes before Christmas 2009. I worked on “Santa Baby 2” starring Jenny McCarthy and Paul Sorvino which aired Dec 13 2009 with great reviews.

I have recently moved to Vancouver BC because I am ready to take my career to new level. I have a voiceover agent Mrs Penny Thow from "Play Management" she can be reached at . Penny has a full recording studio which includes an ISDN line.
