"Wit. Wisdom. Depth. Daring."

My voice is warm, trustworthy, versatile, and timeless. I am committed to excellence and paying attention to the details that bridge the gap between good and great.


With 30 plus years of experience as a full-time voice actor in Los Angeles, it's best to say most of my voice-over training has been "on the job."

That said, I am trained as an actor, having attended the BFA Acting Program in the School of Drama at USC and trained in Meisner Technique at the Ruskin School in Santa Monica, California.

I brush up my technique regularly, with an eye toward remaining current and competitive. I have coached one-on-one with Nancy Wolfson for Commercials, Zach Hanks for Gaming, and Rob Paulsen for Animation. I've taken workshops through VAN - Voice Actors Network - for animation, and through Voices Voice Casting (Mary Lynn Wissner) for gaming, animation, and promos. These workshops have included coaches such as Andrea Toyias, Harry Dunn, and Kris Zimmerman.

I train in dialect work with Adam Michael Rose.

My first work in front of a microphone was as a studio singer, where I gained unique and valuable skill in technique as a recording artist.

I am an active member of the award-winning Actors Co-op Theatre Company in Hollywood and am continually challenging myself to improve as an actor.
