My Voice Experience

I began my performance training in theatre at a young age, and have performed on various stages throughout my career. Both theatre and acting classes have helped me to garner an awareness of my voice and how important it is to the overall performance.

I had my start in voiceover working with Elley-Ray Hennessey in Toronto Ontario, where I was exposed to Open Mics with agents and voice actors from all over the Greater Toronto Area. While working as a voice actor I have continued to expose myself to new opportunities, including a recent Open Mic with Kim Hurdon in video game voice overs.

While I lived overseas I continued to work on my voiceover craft, providing various clients with explainer videos including BeeTold, the Canadian Roots Exchange, ShopWorks and more. I aim to continue honing my craft, while also exposing myself to other forms of performance for a well-rounded performer that you can count on to bring your words to life!
