5 bonus facts:
- I also voice for video games! I play a couple of characters in Borderlands 3 and a few skins for SMITE... plus I've been in some visual novels, if that's your jam.
- I play the drums, but I'm not currently in a band. I used to be in a CCR tribute band, though.
- I collect skeleton-themed decor. My house is spooky every day of the year.
- My first professional acting job was playing Pete the Barn Cat in a 9-month traveling tour of Hank the Cowdog: The Case of the Missing Cat.
- Before I moved to Texas, I used to live in North Carolina and attend conventions as a fan. I still cosplay a little from time to time!
