About

Completed 65 jobs on Voices!

My voice has been featured in commercials (Nerf, GMC, Discord, Keystone Light), films, video games, educational spots, audio dramas, and on the radio. Conversational, authentic, natural, casual, and bold. I can get real fun and cartoony as well!

Aside from VO, I'm a SAG-eligible actor and music composer (B.A. from Occidental). I produce my own songs and write for commercials/film. Also well versed in sound engineering. I'm the whole package! :)
