Milwaukee, Wisconsin, US
I am a professional Improvisor. I am specifically trained to find the truth behind a character as quickly as possible and become them. I have been imitating and creating voices since I was 6 years old, and originally developed my skills as a tactic to survive intense bullying. It eventually worked, and here I am professionally performing with my voice. I am also a singer with massive range. I can sing is almost every one of my voices as well. To top it off, I am kind and supportive in collaborative environments. We can all learn from each other and help each other perform to the utmost level of perfection. I am filled with excitement over even the potential of working with new people and working on new projects! Thank you for reading, and I hope to work with you soon!

My Improvisational abilities and positive collaborative attitude create an environment where experimentation and creative originality are encouraged. Working on new imitations or original voices is always a fun process in which many discoveries (that would otherwise remain hidden) suddenly appear! I am quick to respond to your inquiries and encourage an open dialogue about the prospective work at hand in order to satisfy all parties involved. I am happy to work on projects of all sorts, and am certain that I can satisfy your needs.

I have very high regard for you, your work ethic, your commitment, your artistic talent, and your intelligence. Through your actions, you have given me enough material to write a letter that would be nothing but praise-singing; and I could do it in my sleep. I still have the elevator sketch, cardboard model, and 5 songs you recorded for 'The Vagabond Halfback'. All of this came out because you deeply care and have a creative mind constantly in high gear. My high opinion of you will not change!Jim Johnson - The Green Bay Theater Company
There are actors that you hire for one specific need and there are actors that are able to fit multiple roles. C.J. is that latter. He's able to transition between comedy, drama and spokesperson roles with ease. C.J. is professional, timely and is great at taking direction while at the same time able to give great feedback and come up with very valuable ideas. He's also been able to help work on scripts and come up with great dialogue for his characters. Whether memorizing a lengthy script or improving clever responses, he's gone above and beyond what we expect from our talent.Tony Reale - Creative Edge Productions
