I've been a voice professional for 3 years and a TV and film actress for 10 years. I have a wide range of experience from comedic acting, dramatic acting, hosting, improv, and action. I'm a stand up comedian, and write, produce, and edit comedic sketches. I've put my 3rd degree black belt in Kung fu to use in motion capture, stunts, and action films. From my studies of International Relations at USC, I'm very familiar with and well versed in policy terminology. In addition, I've studied Mandarin Chinese and am able to voice the language at an intermediate level. Though my favorite voicing is of cute girls and boys, and wacky, crazy, nerdy characters, the smooth, soothing, youthful tone of my voice is ideal for commercials and narration too.

In addition to performance, I'm a skilled copy, video, and sound editor, and draw on many resources for sound effects and music. My background in Final Cut Pro greatly assists me with sound editing and production. I love bringing your vision to life!
