My Voice Experience
I've always been captivated from a very young age by animation and the voices that brought them to life. One of my main goals and aspirations to this day is to work for Pixar and voice animated characters.
I went to school for theatre and one of my professors knew people at VoiceScouts and got me an audition for a video game. A few months after my initial audition VoiceScouts was impressed enough with me that I had booked my first gig, a Heart (Cardio) spot for St. Joseph's Hospital in Kokomo, IN. I also had the pleasure of working with VoiceScouts on one more spot for Fall Campus Visit Day for the University of St. Francis in Fort Wayne, IN. I'll never forget the first time I heard myself on the radio.
I've also worked with Lucky Dog Audio in Little Rock, AR as well as Soundscapes Studio.
