A Global Game Jam adventure!

In about a week and a half, I have the incredible honor to be the Keynote speaker at Global Game Jam Hamar, in Norway! I will be talking about working as a voice actor, and how game audio and voice acting impact us on emotional levels. I’ve been a part of some incredible projects that have affected players in very deep ways, so it’s exciting to explore that more.
Another reason why this experience is precious to me is that I can honor the memory of Jory Prum, who was a dear friend and fantastic audio engineer for so many projects I am grateful to be a part of. He absolutely loved life and people- his legacy lives on in so many of us. Norway was one of his favorite places to be… I’m absolutely honored to speak in his name, surrounded by so many who admire him too.
Huge thanks to the Hamar Game Collective for making this happen- I can’t wait to see everyone!

Catch up and 2016 Cons

Hi Friends,
I am astounded at how much time has passed since I’ve written… time moves so fast!
I’ve had so many adventures since I was last here- many miles flown, Mega-buses napped in and Cons attended, unexpected magic moments, exciting dreams coming true and the best thing I could ever hope for actually happening!!
I’m just beginning my Con season, and so far, so great. I’ve been having a blast! A few weeks ago I was a guest at Animarathon, hosted by Anime in Northwest Ohio (ANO), the anime club at Bowling Green State University. It was my second year as a guest there, and reconfirmed what a great show they put on.
The very next weekend, I got to hang out at Walker Stalker Con in Denver and met Lilly and Carley cosplayers– which completely blew my mind and was even more wonderful because they had no idea I was going to be at the con!
IMG_3274I am so looking forward to the rest of the year- attending new places and revisiting others I’ve really enjoyed.

Tucson Comic Con: for the love of art

Earlier this month I had the opportunity to attend Tucson Comic Con, and what an adventure it was. The desert is something else!

I was thankful for the air conditioning! Continue reading

Long Live The Royals, indeed

A few years ago a huge dream came true for me- I was cast in a Cartoon Network pilot created by Sean Szeles called The Royals. It was especially exciting because when I read for the character of Alex, he just really clicked with me- and I wanted that part really really bad.
Now… this is a dangerous prospect, as I try my best to audition and forget about it- when I want a part too much, it can sting pretty bad when the opportunity is lost.
In this case though, it went better than I dreamed!!
I drove down to Los Angeles for the session, and admittedly, it was a bit intimidating to be in a room with so many amazing actors. Wes Gleason directed us and with such a group, it was a lot of fun!
