My Voice Experience

I was originally sponsored by a voice teacher to move to Los Angeles for singing and from there, quite randomly, got VO work from people who had heard my natural speaking voice. From there, more and more, people suggested I put together demos and submit for auditions. I discovered that I truly love, enjoy and have the passion and the natural ability to do well.

When i was 13-17, I worked part time as a host/anchor for a radio-net in the Bahamas. Along with that, I would read aloud, speak at functions and record scripts/narratives for fun long before I acknowledged it as a possible career path.
