“When I was about 7-years old, I realized that I could make my friends laugh by doing funny voices and impersonations. And as much as I loved acting, teachers always assigned the role of narrator to me. Growing up, I also spent many hours at home recording audio “skits” that included characters and silly humor. Some don’t believe that you’re born to be something, but I’d have to disagree. I always knew that voice acting was my special gift, and I love using that gift to make my clients’ projects come to life.
I began working in VO as a teenager. I’m even more passionate about it today. One of my first commercial campaigns called for me to mimic John Belushi in a takeoff of one of his Saturday Night Live routines most remember as the “But No!” bit. After many takes to fit those commercials into 60-seconds, I would come out of the studio drenched in sweat. I was still a kid, going to the local college. One day, I overheard a group of students on campus talking about the “But No!” commercials, and they were talking about it like it was the hottest new sitcom. At that point, I was really hooked. And the rest is history.
From my studio, I provide voiceovers in TV & Radio commercials, video games, corporate & business videos, audiobooks, eLearning, explainer videos and more. My goal is to always leave my client wanting for more. Just like those college kids all of those years ago.”
