Bio:

At age 6 I was first discovered by my parents in the living room performing the drum solo to Iron Butterfly's In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida on an orange ottoman. Since then all aspects of the performing arts has been a passion for me. My first opportunity to channel my passion was in 1993 at the Recording Workshop in Chillicothe, Ohio where I was trained as a sound engineer. Since then, I have recorded several acts, scored four Independent films and worked my way to being a mastering engineer.

When I was later introduced to the voice acting industry it was love at first read. Continuing to follow my passion I honed my voice over skills by training with Boston Casting in Boston Massachusetts, Edge Studio in New York City and continue to study my craft with some of the most respected voices in the industry. My delivery style is best described as easygoing, expressive, friendly and personable. I naturally sounds like a brother, dad, buddy and every day man.
