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 clients include Google, HBO, TizZ Tutor, Fair Housing Center for Rights and Research, and Embr Wave. Character VO work includes the voice of Yu Yan in Swan Princess 10: A Royal Wedding; video games; the scripted podcasts Ex Pat, Georgie Romero is Done For, and The Soft-Boiled Detective; and the webcomics The Glove and Criminal King. I've also narrated over 40 audiobooks in the Young Adult, Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Mystery, Historical Fiction, and Romance genres. 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.
