A bit more about me:
From a young age I had been aware of the disembodied voices speaking to me from the TV and radio, and I decided that was going to be me one day. I’ve always been a performer, from piano and violin recitals to taekwondo competitions. To me, it’s no different behind the microphone.
Most of my youth was spent consuming Japanese media like anime and Japanese roleplaying games (JRPGs), which [somewhat embarrassingly] were my motivation to learn the language. Being able to see the nuances of each language gives me a unique perspective as a voice actor. Nowadays, it’s hard to decide whether or not to watch subs or dubs, or to play games in the original Japanese vs. with the English voices.
When I’m not in the studio recording, I’m usually enjoying playing tabletop games or video games, watching streamers online, or scheming up a new recipe in the kitchen. But these days I’m just cooped up inside like everyone else.
