My Voice Experience

I've been doing VO since 99. I started by doing spec animation for cartoons brought over from Southeast Asia. I also helped with the re-writes because the plots and language didn't directly translate into understandable storylines.
I've worked a number of motion comics, including Invincible and Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8 for Maxx Ink and MTV.
I'm also part of the animation trailer for 8 Limbs, a Muay Thai feature.
Also the animation trailer for Turistas: The Other Side of Paradise.
I've studied at Kalmenson/Kalmenson as well as doing workshops with Portia Scott-Hicks, Aaron Brown and Heather Henry Parker of Disney, and Terry Berland.
