I was born on a snowy day in Michigan (I'm just guessing, but since it was winter, it's a pretty good guess). I was always playing let's pretend and creating things; at my 4th grade birthday party I wrote a play and made all my friends participate in it. (No performance = no cake.) I pursued a degree in photojournalism but took a detour into an independent music career. Four albums, over 1000 shows, lots of car miles and a few awards later, I moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in... acting. (You thought I was going to say music, weren't you?)
I trained in comedy (sketch writing classes, and improv at Upright Citizens Brigade), honing my witty and whimsical style for my work in TV, film, and voiceovers. On-camera work includes Stevie TV (VH1), Buzzfeed, College Humor, and online sketches for Things Get Dicey and for dating coach Matthew Hussey.
Voiceover work includes Google, HBO, Swan Princess 10: A Royal Wedding, audio dramas, and video games, including Black Desert Online’s Land of Morning Light expansion. I've also narrated about 100 audiobooks in the Young Adult, Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Mystery, Historical Fiction, and Romance genres. And if you're a K-pop fan, you may have heard me on J-Hope (of BTS)'s album, Jack in the Box, on the first track.
My Source Connect ready home studio includes a Rode NT1 and an Audio Technica MB-3000L, with a Scarlett Solo interface. DAWs used include Logic Pro X, Garage Band and Audacity.
And my journalism roots run deep - I still write, mostly romantic comedies and sketches. My scripted comedy podcast, Ex Pat, debuted in March 2020 on all major podcast platforms. My first fantasy novel, Heir of Amber and Fire, was released in March 2021, followed by Heir of Memory and Shadow in May 2022. The series is now up to four titles, with the latest, Heir of Crowns and Curses coming in October 2023.
