About

My voice has been featured in commercials (Nerf, Discord, Mentos), films, video games, educational spots, industrials, and on the radio!

I'm originally from Queens (fuhgeddabout it) and got my B.A. in Music Composition from Occidental, which also gave me a lot of sound engineering skills. I stayed out in LA to pursue acting, and the pandemic pushed me to get into VO work. Now I'm a full-time working actor and life couldn't be sweeter. Let's create something together!
