My Voice Experience

I began my foray into the VO community when I was 12 years old. I was scouted at a school play, and recorded all the demos for Caillou's Christmas. After deciding Caillou wasn't quite rock n' roll enough, I began my music career, touring extensively with several different rock bands and hosting a late night rock n' roll radio show with my bandmates for Rockland World Radio in New York. I continued to record jingles, commercials, and industrials in New York, until I moved to Los Angeles and found myself recording jingles, commercials, and industrials in the sunshine instead. And animations. And records. Life is cool.

My Training

I graduated from the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts, where I got a conservatory degree in film acting. There, I was enrolled in Voice Overs with Mary Elaine Monti, and then advanced Voice Overs with Charles Mintz. I've been singing jazz since I was 4 years old (self-taught), and continued voice lessons and speech with Daniel Knowles in Los Angeles. I am also taking ongoing on-camera acting classes at Krater studios in Los Angeles, and workshops with Jack Plotnick.

My Studio Equipment

Rode NT 1-A studio condenser microphone
Apogee One Interface (which can be used to create a mobile VO studio)

Additional Skills

I'm very gifted at mimicking voice references. I write and record songs, and have co-written soundtracks. I have access to TONS of original music.
