Intro

Hey there! My name is....well if you're on this page you probably already know. When most people write an intro it's usually to paint themselves pretty and tell you about how great they are, but I'm an extremely modest person who simply has a passion for voiceover and acting in general.

I love being able to bring scripts to life either on or off-camera simply because of the emotion it invokes.

I've always been a fan of film and I immerse myself in anything I watch because it truly transports you to another place and, if done right, you will experience the same emotions as you watch or listen. That's why I will continue to do what I do and I look forward to working with you!

About

I was born in Los Angeles, California in 1980 with a full head of dark black hair (but as you can see in my picture, age hasn’t been kind to my poor head). Being the younger brother, I think I got most of the attention, but I wouldn’t say that I got away with anything. My brother and I learned from a very young age that if one of us told on the other, both of us would get in trouble. I don’t know if it was their intention or not, but our parents were teaching us respect and that is something that has stuck with me my entire life.

I’ve noticed in my own interactions with people as well as witnessing others that being respectful towards everyone will always create a mutually beneficial environment. Working in the entertainment industry, this same ideology rings true as you catch more flies with honey than you do with vinegar. If I wasn’t respectful to people with whom I worked, why would they ever want to work with me again? This is a point that I want to stress to any of my existing clients or any future clients, because I want them to understand that out of respect for their business and their needs, I will make sure that I do everything in my power to not only meet, but to exceed their expectations as a voice actor or onscreen actor with my level of professionalism and quality of work.

Growing up, I had a knack for music. I learned how to play piano by ear at an early age and I still do to this day. I never took any formal music classes, but I taught myself how to harmonize with songs on the radio. In the early 2000s, I worked with a young, ambitious hip hop music producer singing hooks for rap songs. It was a great experience, and skills that I learned then, I still use today in my home studio.

I took drama in high school, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I also studied acting with a local talent agency and found that extremely gratifying because I learned how much I enjoyed bringing scripts to life. Also, being a huge fan of television and film, I discovered that I was very good at doing character voices and imitating accents that I would hear (Maybe there was something to that….)

In 2010, I decided that I wanted to pursue voice acting as a career. I did some research and found a company called Such a Voice. I learned how to interpret scripts and recording techniques, plus I recorded the demos that you can still hear on my website. I am currently working with Terry Daniel to continue to hone my craft as I make my career as an onscreen/off screen actor a successful one. This is my dream and my passion which you will hear or see in any project that I work on.
