My Training

I first started my training under Peter Rofe' of PDR Voice-Over Coaching in New York City in July, 2010. Since then I have recorded my commercial and animation voice-over reels with them. I have also attended numerous workshops with top voice-over talent agents and producers. These workshops along with my own marketing have led to numerous auditions and bookings for commercials, video games, animation projects, narrations and more.

In addition to my first-hand voice-over experience in New York, I graduated from William Paterson University in 2008 with a Bachelor's Degree in Communications with a minor in Japanese language and culture. During these years, I also studied studio production, acting and improvisation.

My Studio Equipment

Home Studio (New Jersey):

-Pro Tools 8 Software

-Audio Technica 4040 Studio Microphone

*I also have preferred access to several reputable, fully-equipped voice-over production facilities in New York City.
