Since childhood, I've been mark-making, developing characters and entertaining anyone around, with or without their approval. I even won the title of "World's Fastest Caricaturist" at a convention in Vegas many years ago. Creativity is fundamental in my life and informs my perception of the world around me...and gives me a pretty amusing internal dialogue along the way!
I began dabbling in acting, just a few years ago, in high school speech class. I studied acting at Ohio University and became dedicated to performing and directing community theatre for many years before making the big move to Los Angeles. The transition from stage-acting to on-camera work was harrowing and humbling...but made way for me to discover my life's passion. Studying Improv at The Groundlings is a dream come true. I found my tribe in L.A.--crazy, right?!
I love doing VO Work. Commercials, Animation, Narration, Video Games...you name it, I love it all. Well, there have been a few projects that I maybe wouldn't want to do over again--think medical jargon, tongue-twisters!--but even those were worth the price of admission. I know that VO gave me the discipline and vision to make the move from the Midwest to Hollywood, and I'm always looking to do more of it.
Do you have more questions? Are you interested in collaborating on a project? Send me a message, and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
