My Voice Experience

I pretty much got pushed into acting which eventually just lead to doing voice over. But what really got me settled steadily in vo is after id' been practicing yoga for a few years. As my breathing changed, so did my voice. It got more consistently deep and bigger and i was able to control it more. And the work just kind kept flowin' my way. I really dig adding what's needed to open a project up!

Additional Skills

My career took off pretty fast and I was off and running. But, I had a lot of catching up to do as I was constantly being challenged to express myself truthfully on and off the screen. This was and still is to this day like peeling the layers of an onion. In 2004, after 3 1/2 years on my first show I took up something that i’ve loved my entire life but never studied, martial arts. More particularly the self-defense aspect of it. I wanted to learn something that could would actually work if something ever happened. This took me on a whole other journey within myself and what I would discover would be one of the most cherished gifts God ever blessed me with. The Passion of Empowerment.

During my self-defense studies I was a part of the West Coast Bojuka Federation, whom put on Rape Prevention Seminars for local females. When I tell you these women came in scared and intimidated…it was like watching little white mice who’ve been experimented on, coming into our seminars. But after a mere 2 hours these women were owning the room like fierce lionesses! I was completely blown away at the transformation that was taking place right before my eyes. From that point on I knew I wanted to be a part of empowering females in this way. A few years later I would establish Inspire Me Defense, focusing on the empowerment aspect of self-defense while teaching reality based tactics for survival.

During the time when I began studying self-defense, my 11 year old cousin Derrick (who I now call my sone) also came to live with me. Since he was about 6 months old, he and I always had a relationship that was more like a father and son. We ended up living together till he was about 14 and on and off after that. That experience was one of the best, and most challenging experiences I’ve every had to say the least. And if I had the option to do it again I would in a heartbeat!

After a a few years of becoming a certified instructor to teach self-defense, an opportunity to work with the abused women of the local charity Safe Passage presented itself to me. Since day one, our relationship naturally blossomed and for the past 6 years Inspire Me Defense has been the official Self-Defense and Empowerment Program for their clientele.

After several years of working with Safe Passage, we launched the “It’s Not Okay” campaign to promote peace, non-violence and healthy relationships between partners. You can view the PSA’s (Public Service Announcements) that we created that recently aired on CBS 2 / KCAL 9 here. It was while I was directing the PSA’s that I discovered my passion to conceptualize, write, direct and produce content that serves a good purpose. Somehow it all made sense and came together on set. I made a personal promise to myself that I would only create projects in whatever form they may show up as (PSA’s, TV, Film) that could offer easy to apply tools of inspiration, hope and guidance for all of us.
