Where are you from?
Newmarket, Ontario, Canada, though I now live in Ottawa.
Why do you want to be a voice actor?
It’s hecka fun. I’m a dungeon master for a D&D group and I’m always coming up with crazy characters and kooky voices. I realized just doing the voices was fun enough on its own and given that I already had the audio gear and know-how (I’m a music composer by day) jumping into voice acting was a no-brainer!
Who is your favorite VO actor?
Wilhelm. Of Wilhelm scream fame.
Who is your favorite anime/game/cartoon character?
Philip J. Fry, although closely followed by Zoidberg. *woop woop woop woop*
If you could voice any character, who would it be and why?
I don’t have a specific character I’d like to voice…I’m always more in the vein of trying to be new characters rather than do fanimated films. But if we’re talking character archetypes, I would really, REALLY like to play a good-guy-slowly-turning-into-bad-guy or bad-guy-slowly-turning-into-good-guy. To be a character that is established in one manner and then slowly changes a huge part of themselves really appeals to me. The internal struggle, how much of it they show on the outside, how they work through the change – that’s the kind of role I can really sink my teeth into and get into the mind space of.
What drew you to audition for Cosmic Rage?
The animation style is really interesting; I’d never seen anything like it so that was a big draw. I also like how all the documentation and how everything is run is very organized. I’m the kind of guy that would be unable to function without a calendar and spreadsheets, so careful organization really appeals to me haha.
