BIOGRAPHY

I come from a small county in Virginia. I am a husband to my lovely wife/best friend and am also a father to two beautiful girls.

At around eight years old, I started to really grab music by the reins. I would write and sing songs; I started singing all of the time. I got into performance and even though I considered myself somewhat of an introvert, I really found a love for the stage. I loved to perform for the people. This all led me to pursue some acting in grade schools. It also led me to following the band-life for quite some time. From high school and on for some years, I pursued leading original bands various ways. Released a lot of demos. Toured some, up and down the east coast. This life direction also veered me into schooling in order to obtain my bachelor's degree of science in music production via Full Sail University. I love everything about being a singer-songwriter.

It wasn't until the summer of 2019, that a GIGANTIC light bulb burst in my brain. The performing. The acting. And... all of those annoyingly-silly voices I heard in my head and would project while joking with others and reading aloud all of my life. VOICE ACTING! The noodles of my brain started their noodling and it lit a fire in me. I became fascinated by the idea of pursuing a career-life in voice acting. All of the cartoons and video games and audio books I've listened to and watched over the years - WHY HAD I NEVER LATCHED ONTO THIS?!?! It called to me. I immediately dove into heavy research online. I listened to demo reels of others, listened to various voice-acting podcasts, scoured everything I could soak up from the interwebs and even reached out to a prominent voice actor who (THANK YOU) responded to me and gave me tips to help me get on my way. After a couple of months of learning the ins-and-outs, I decided that this is what I wanted to do (with the heaviest amount of dedication) in the creative field of my life. I wanted to be a voice actor. So, here I am; working as hard as I can - taking some classes, networking and recording auditions - in order to become an eventual sought-after voice talent. Wish me luck and if you are reading this, I hope this either inspires you with whatever you are pursuing or gives you motivation to want to work with me at some point in whatever project you are passionate about in your life.
