Originally from Idaho, I traded potatoes for palm trees and moved to Los Angeles to hone my craft. I have worked as a professional actor and professional voice-over artist for over 10 years. My commercial and voice-over work includes such companies as Dish Network, American Express, Honda, Micron, Hewlett Packard, Albertson's, and Southwest Airlines, just to name a few. With my small town sensibility and and an honest folksy feel, my voice has a familiar quality that is as American as apple pie.
