My Voice Experience

An early love of cartoons and infomercials set the stage for my lifelong interest in Voice Acting but it wasn't until the 8th grade, when I was cast as the "host" for a behind-the-scenes video for Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus, that I experienced VO recording and I was hooked. I went on to star in a series of educational CD-ROMS, a "Brown vs. Board of Education" installation and a "Settlers in the Wild West" museum piece (that required working with an Irish dialect coach as a great bonus), all before I hit high school...at which point I switched gears to focus on a type of competitive acting known as Forensics (not the kind with the dead bodies...common misconception).

After winning various state and national awards including first place in Dramatic Interpretation at the Harvard National Speech Invitational, I went on to coach high school competitors after graduation.

In college, I joined a prestigious improv and sketch comedy group on campus and was cast in many student productions; while focusing my studies on New Media and the business side of the Entertainment Industry.

After graduation I worked as a talent manager and producer for some of the top YouTube creators in the world. In 2012 I began doing voice-work again, and in November 2013 I decided to shift to freelance consulting in order to focus on personal projects, including first and foremost, my voice over career.

I am CRAZY PASSIONATE about voice acting. In just under a year, I have booked over a dozen jobs, including gigs for AT&T, Vice, Flickr, ShoeMint, JewelMint, the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, the Children's Data Network, the Conveyor Group, Fullscreen Inc. and more!

I look forward to adding your project to the list!
