My Voice Experience

During my formal study of the artistic and technical disciplines of creating AAA video-games, I found my calling when I was repeatedly asked to voice different characters including a villain for a game based on a Saturday morning television show that blended actresses and CGI.

I went on to accept a 1 year internship as a project assistant and in-house voice talent for a Toronto based audio production studio called 3Tone Entertainment.

Since then I have worked on various freelance projects providing services from 2d/3d art and logo designs to a wide gamut of voice over applications.
