My self-summary
Portland, OR-->Iowa. Moved in October, and still trying to find my way around.
How does one encapsulate nuances and subtleties in such a limited, word-based space? I like meeting people in person. There's so much more in one glance than words can ever describe.
I'm a voice actor, and passionate about what I do.
I strive to live as happy and healthy as I can, which, I'm realizing, requires a steady and artful balance of all one finds significant.
What I’m doing with my life
Voice actor.
Podcaster.
Creative writer.
I’m really good at
Table tennis. I challenge you ;)

I spend a lot of time thinking about
The vastness of nature and the universe, and how humbling it is.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends having lively and insightful conversations over good food and good drinks.

Although staying in sometimes seems more fitting--a good film accompanied by a glass of red wine or a Jubilale.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I warm up on the way to auditions/recording by singing in the car (also good karaoke practice).
You should message me if
I'm a sucker for wit, honesty, and genuine kindness.
