I am a voice actor and stand-up comedian in the LA Area. To this point, most of my work has been in the anime industry, appearing in such projects as Magi: The Kingdom of Magic, Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, Netflix’s Seven Deadly Sins and Toonami’s One Punch Man, as well as video games like Shadowverse. I have also made a name for myself as a convention stand-up comedian, becoming a finalist in Anime Expo’s Late Comedy show in 2014, 2015, and earning 2nd place in 2017. I feel incredibly fortunate to have gotten the opportunities that I have, especially at such a young age, and I am incredibly excited for what the future has to offer.
How I Got Here
While growing up in Glendora, California, some of my favorite things to do included performing and learning different voices (for example, when I was in middle school, I learned how to do the voices of all the characters from homestarrunner). This continued even into high school, when I ran for Senior Class Secretary by doing an impression of George W. Bush (I lost, it was a conservative high school). During this upbringing, I also always had an interest in all things nerdy, whether that be anime, video games, table top gaming, film, etc. Then one day, my ideal career was realized.
In the spring semester of my second year of college, my friends encouraged me to go to Anime Expo and try out their voice acting competition (because I’d been annoying them with my impressions so much up until that point). Though my read at this competition didn’t get me into the finals, it sparked the desire to act within me that I had ignored for so long. Since then, I changed my major to theatre, took several acting and directing classes, and eventually earned my Bachelor’s in Theatre with an emphasis in Directing in 2016. Also, along the way in 2013, I was chosen as a callback from Anime Expo’s open auditions. Ever since, I have worked on projects in several genres, including anime, video games, commercials, foreign films, and radio dramas.
