Charlie Brown, bad British, I like to narrate my own Star Wars and Indiana Jones Lego videos with all the characters.

My Voice Experience

I have been with Voice123 since 2010, and so far I have done about 225 voice acting projects.

I like all of the kinds of jobs I have done, but some of my favorites include: apps for SeaWorld, being the audio tour guide for Jasper Tramway gondola, playing "Snoop" the detective in an e-learning programme about advertising, playing "Clayton" in an audio story about gambling addiction, and playing video game characters.

Other than that, I have done a lot of apps for kids, commercials for radio, tv and the internet, and projects for churches and charitable groups.

My Training

I'm a wise cracker at the dinner table.

I'm in a children's choir and drama troupe called the Rosebud Younger Company that performs musicals.

I have acted in the Canadian Badlands Passion Play for four summers. My main role is Little Jonah, the Messenger of Bethany

This last Fall I acted in my first professional theatre production. The play was Our Town by Thornton Wilder, and I played Wally Webb.

I am in my second professional theatre show right now, playing Jack in Jack's Giant Adventure, a modern version of Jack and the Beanstalk

My mom and dad are both actors, so we're always goofing off and trying new voices.

I'm in highschool and do well in my classes.

I just finished a 2 month world trip with my family.

I love to write, and I love to read.
