I'm repped across the board.

My goal is to work bi-coastally and in voice-over for gaming and animation.

What I bring to my work is authenticity. I'm there to have fun and make sure the clients, CD and camera person do, too.

I've trained at and graduated from Second City Chicago's Conservatory Program. I've written and performed sketch comedy and stand-up in Chicago, New York, and LA.

In my free time, I enjoy traveling to Sweden and the UK, going to castles, learning about medieval history, playing board games, bowling, and trying to befriend animals visiting my balcony.
