As far back as I can remember, I’ve always enjoyed putting on a show and getting a reaction from my audience. As I grew up and became more aware of my natural empathy, I knew that was another tool that would come in handy as I began my career.”
- In an interview, while talking about how he discovered his talent for voice acting, he said,
I was always doing different accents, but I felt naturally drawn to how we use our voices. I went to college and I came across a dialect class as part of my Theatre degree. I just did voices for fun my whole life, but this class really spoke to me. So, I dove in! I took all the dialects classes that I could (I studied dialects for a whole solid year).”
