2017 is the year I hope to polish and update all of my demos, so to get started, I finally produced my animation sound design demo! Check it out here, or under the Sound Design tab.
You can hear me as the new frontline tank character Mirielle, the Queen of Destruction, in Soul Hunters!
I'm so excited to say that you can now hear me as Angela in Avengers Academy! I'm both a huge fan of Marvel and Angela's creator, Neil Gaiman, so playing her was a huge honor!
This past fall has been extremely busy for me, with a lot of exciting new opportunities that have come up! I can't talk about all of it yet, but here's a few highlights of what I've been up to lately!
Intro to ProTools Series
I've been wanting to write more tutorial content for a while and felt like using video may be a more efficient way to do so! I'll still be writing more about voice over, but if you want to brush up on your audio editing skills in the mean time, be sure to follow my Introduction to ProTools course!
The Elysium Project
Episode 5 of the Elysium Project is now available, along with a new series of mini episodes! Check them out on iTunes, or listen to Episode 5 on Youtube now.
"The Security Hole
Here me as the voice of the AI "Sybry" in this trailer for the Security Hole - now available on Steam!
Sound Cadence Studios just cast and directed their first VR game! I only appear briefly as an extra in this one, but it's my first VR role and the game looks wonderful!
Most people who've met me know that I'm a HUGE fan of Dragons and Daenerys from Game of Thrones. As a result, I had an absolute BALL recording for my second Heroes of Newerth Character: Mother of Dragons. She's available in one of the latest patches and she'll unleash hell if you touch her babies. Have fun!
Episode 6 of Shattered Heaven is now available and concludes Season 1 of the series! I'm tremendously proud of my friend Adam for the work he put into the series and just how much it shows in the final product. Once again, I had the chance to provide sound design help and mixing the final episode. We hope you enjoy!
I'm very excited to say that you'll be able to hear me as Rosa in Rio: The Rainbow Gate! Rosa is the first named anime role I've been able to play and I had a ball bringing her to English voice to life!
You can hear me briefly at 2:44 in the sample clip here.
Also be sure to check out Media Blasters dub of Juden Chan, where you can hear me as part of the additional voices cast!
I had an amazing time visiting the new Sound Cadence Studios location in Dallas, Texas! We've been working together as remotes for some time now and it's great to have a place to professionally collaborate.
Recording for Rio: The Rainbow Gate is well underway and we got to knock out a few Elysium Project scripts as well. I'm so excited to have these projects released over the summer after seeing all the amazing work that's being put in!
A More Beautiful World
The Demo for "A More Beautiful World" will be available soon through steam, and includes beautifully updated sprites and new content!

I was recently announced as the voice of Rose Cooper in the visual novel "The Letter!" I'll also be working in production as part of Sound Cadence Studios in bringing the voice over patch to life!
I was going to wait until a bit later in these articles to bring this up, but after talking with a few of my casting director friends, I feel like the sooner I can touch on some of the mistakes we can make as voice actors the better.
Okay. Real Talk for a minute.
Like it or not - whether you think it’s fair or not - every casting director and most actors have a List. For some people it’s called a blacklist, for others it’s simply “that list of people I will never ever work with because of ______.” Actors and directors follow these lists very carefully based on their experiences. Whether or not you’re on a list makes the difference between getting invited to auditions, collaborations, and other business opportunities that could be advantageous to your career as a voice actor... or not. These lists also grow and change over time, but it’s vital to remember that because online voiceover is a very small and niche community, if you’re on one person’s list, chances are that they’re telling others to add you to their own.
Fortunately, getting on one of these lists really only happens because of poor business sense. Part of being a professional in this industry means knowing that there are some major pitfalls and that you aren’t immune to them, no matter how much experience you have under your belt. Occasionally, some newcomers are very politely informed if they cross any boundaries, but you can’t count on being so lucky every time. And if you do have experience and ought to know better, you can permanently ruin your own career.
To make sure that this never happens to you, let’s look at some of the most common situations where voice actors have inadvertently sabotaged their relationship with other actors and directors.
