Here’s a bit about me and why I made this site:
I was born in Indiana and grew up in Colorado. As a kid I loved sci-fi and horror movies, acting, running, astronomy, computers and reading sci-fi and fantasy. Never saw acting or performing as more than a hobby before my mid-twenties.
My folks were both teachers, my Dad, a celebrated trombonist.
I got a great liberal arts education at The Colorado College, studying German, biology and art and graduated with a degree in Philosophy and no particular goals or aspirations at all. College had me acting and singing and open-mic-ing a lot, but I took only one acting class.
After enjoying all kinds of performing for fun since second grade– on stage, on camera and behind a mic– I improvisationally found my way to a full time acting career in my late twenties. I settled on voice acting exclusively in my mid thirties after moving to Los Angeles with my wife in 1993 just in time for the Northridge Earthquake.
I maintain this website because it’s fun for me. I like the feeling of saving everyone time (including myself) with this online compilation of all that I’ve learned over my four decades as a performer. I hope it’s a constructive and practical resource for those suited to voice acting- and for those who aren’t.
After a good run of success voice acting in L.A., I figured it was my turn to lend a hand to a new generation of performers in the most friction-free manner possible. I learned on the stage that acting is a voluntary family- you help each other out, the experienced share their insight– so here ya go!
I hope this site brings you clear-sighted insight and practical benefit. I wish you an enjoyable and lucky path towards becoming yourself!
