I have over 10 years experience in the broadcast arena, ranging from radio broadcasting to voiced animation. I've performed for the IP-Man 3 Movie as "Frank" for Mike Tyson. I Represented the people of Florida as the "Voice of the Floridians" in the COP-21 Climate Summit 2015 reading their letter to the President of the United States and the President of France along with local delegates. I also worked on the animated series "One Piece" as "Kizaru" and "Kumacy" for the televised version and for the 2012 movie "One Piece Z". Along with voice acting I was also trained in stage acting and theater by the Jubilee Theater of Fort Worth, Texas. This has helped me in my performances with voice work, breathing life and realism into every read.
I am a 2006 graduate of the American Broadcasting School in Arlington TX, and have been trained in nearly every facet of voiced broadcasting ranging from voice work to production of edited audio and journalism, as well as writing and editing copy for commercials and PSA’s. I have had the privillage of working with Drive time on their 2011, 2012 ad campaign and I have also worked with Funimation performing voiced content for various projects from animation to live action movies.
