I graduated from Solon High School in 2006. While there, I acted in a few school
plays and musicals. I then went on to the University of Iowa where I obtained a degree
in Cinema And Comparative Literature with a minor in Japanese. I had a lot of classes
where I filmed short projects, but my favorite classes were on sound. We had to film
a short video in groups and then exchange them. The goal was to take out all the
original sounds and replace them with sounds that had to be separately recorded.
The other class was with Rick Altman where we looked at how sound evolved from the
beginning of motion pictures to the present.
I’ve always been into voices more than visuals. I owe that to anime, cartoons, and
video games. I was privileged to attend classes taught by Tony Oliver (voice of Lupin
III, Rick Hunter of Robotech, Harry McDowel of Gungrave, etc.) through AIVA and Bang
Zoom! Entertainment. I voiced for an animation (see it in the video section) that
I am very proud to have been a part of.
I have also done cinematography work for a few businesses as well as an editor and
director for some independent films so I know what it is like to be on both sides.
I recently moved to the Los Angeles area and am continuing my path to work in the
industry. If you want to know more about me, please feel free to contact me.
