I've been prone to impersonate friends, loved ones, famous people and fictional characters most of my life. In high school I discovered that I had a knack for accents as friends cheered me on to "prank" call local radio stations - succeeding once in entertaining a D.J. live on the air. Later dialogue from that show was used in a mix for their commercial advertising. While in Film school I often found myself acting in my friend's movies and as I finished my degree in 2005 I had become the primary voice talent on multiple student projects within the Film/Video and Animation Departments. From 2006 - 2012 I was on the phone, doing Customer Service and supporting any new or upcoming product for Blizzard Entertainment (Irvine, CA). In 2010 I was recruited as narrator of a specially targeted video announcement and then, soon after cast as The Lone Ranger, for the Musical performance of: "I'll Be Home for Christmas" at The Rock (Anaheim, CA). In 2011 I excelled in four, very distinct and intense voice - over classes at Del Mar Media Arts (Irvine, CA). In early 2012 I completed a professional voice over demo reel at Del Mar via their full service production studio. As a performing artist in general I try to keep busy as such, volunteering my time in various Theatre & Musical Theatre opportunities that have come my way (The Rock, Solidarity (Fullerton, CA), Biola University (La Mirada, CA) and am now of course, very pleased to announce that I've completed my first paid job as Narrator on Visuflect's "EyeScribe" product presentation and video/slideshow.

I was working in San Diego as a construction worker when all of a sudden...on a night right before Thanksgiving, 2014, I was contacted via phone by my friend Joe's soon-to-be, Father-in-Law, Jim Olson. who very coridally asked if I'd be interested in narrating his now soon-to-be-completed project, Visuflect's "EyeScribe"! Very expressively...I said 'Are you kidding?! Yeah, I'm Interested!!'Visuflect
