Hi everybody,

Today I can finally announce that I landed a role for the English dub of Skate-Leading Stars. This is my first main character role and I'm absolutely honored to have the opportunity! I voice Hayato Sasugai, a sly mysterious character who always has something hiding up his sleeve.


As some of you may know, one of the main reasons I became a voice actor was growing up with Newgrounds and constantly annoying my friends with impersonations from all the best submissions over the years. I have always hailed this site as the most genuine site for creative individuals and the inspiration that Newgrounds has personally provided me still holds strong to this day. I grew from a fan to an actor from desperation to be like the creators I've fawned over. (Of course, I'd love to get better at animation, but that has proven much more challenging for me).

If you dream it, you can make it happen. Keep up the creative spirits everybody, and NEVER GIVE UP!!!

Hey all. I have a really bad habit of not making posts enough on this wonderful site, so I decided to update my voice acting progress!

Last year was a real banger for me. I was blessed to be a part of many different anime shows. I wanted to showcase them all here!


I recorded for all of these last year. I rarely update my Newgrounds page so this post was necessary! It's unreal to me because a few years ago I "officially" set out on my voice acting journey and I've been blessed with accomplishment after some very intense grinding. The whole way I have found the Newgrounds community to be as supportive as ever. Truly my favorite website and community, you guys are the best! <3


For voice acting inquiries, you can DM me here, but Twitter might be the fastest way to reach me. Alternatively you can drop me a line on my site.

Howdy y'all!

I've been staying busy over the last year. This is the first year in my life as a freelancer I've been able to survive paying thousands of dollars in bills, without signing any W2's.

I've gotten plenty of gigs working behind the scenes and in front of the camera in movies, commercials, and TV shows. As far as voice acting goes, I've done a bunch of stuff in anime and video games - two of the biggest accomplishments from those have been recording at FUNimation and for Red Dead Redemption 2.

Oh also I got the Wacom MobileStudio Pro 16! So maybe I should start commissions or something so I can continue to eat.

In any case, I love this site and all the wonderful people who dwell within it. Here's to hoping for good stuff in the future as we all trek on. Hoping to pump out more content very soon if I can improve my living situation.

I took a class with Sonny Strait (voice of Krillin, Lupin the 3rd, Korosensei) and it was awesome to learn under his belt. And now, I have a demo to show for it!

My demo can be found at my site here. This is after several voice-over classes and training workshops, a few of which included some of the lovely people from FUNimation. Over the past year I've done a few things here and there, many of which include projects I can't talk about yet. But I'll have more to show for myself soon!

It's almost Halloween time, and I'm hungry for voice-acting work. I don't animate nearly as much as I'd like to, but that's because I need a new Wacom and the MobileStudio Pro is... way out of my price range. One day though!

Anyway it's time for me to get to work on voice acting, so I'm posting here on my favorite content site to have a go at it. That Halloween contest deadline is coming up in a month and a half, so time is ticking!

Been a while since I've been active here, but I'm back. I've been busting ass voice acting, going from cluelessly making my own crappy demos on my site to attending workshops with the Funimation crew.

I don't animate like I used to (between work, voice acting, and life, there's simply not enough time) but every now and then I'll hop back on for quick scene work. Unforuntately I haven't finished any projects in recent years so I can't showcase my skill increase as seen here.

If you ever find yourself in doubt pursuing a passion, stopping is the first and only ingredient for failure. In my own life I have been hitting obstacles for years, and I have finally begun to strike success after a war-torn journey of confusion and hopelessness. Giving up is not an option and doing so only wastes your time - PRACTICE and study and dedicate your time to a passion every day and you will find your niche with it.

This week I'm moving to Dallas to pursue more voice acting opportunities, so life is finally getting exciting. With that being said I can't wait to show the world what I've got!

After a year and a half of waiting and one year of putting it off, I finally present to you my second animation, Office Time! Give it a watch and tell me what you think! I hope it's as funny as how lonely I am.

Hey all.

So I doubt many of you know me, seeing as I've only submitted two projects onto this site. But I've been an avid Newgrounds user since around 2000, and I really feel like this site is a home for my creativity. Over the years I've been inspired from classic flash animations and artists that have continued my drive for making a career in animation and voice acting. Well I feel it necessary to announce that I am beginning to take hold of opportunities to complete that. Through some lucky streaks and connections, as well as a LOT of practice, I am about to embark on a number of voice roles for television shows. Many details I can't mention, due to NDA contracts and such, but I have obtained voice roles for a children's show, a connection with Shonen Jump, and (if all goes well) the production of a new show to premiere on adult swim. In my short span of kickstarting all of this I've talked to Hollywood executives and voice actors, and I can say that my quest is about to become legit as hell. I've had some VERY lucky breaks.

In saying all of this, I'd just like to say thank you Newgrounds, Tom Fulp and all; you have been a recurring source of inspiration and interest in my passions. If I get good enough at animating (still have some work to go there) then I'd love to submit more content and share my creative drive with the site that I held close all these years.

Starting my career!

We gained an enormous amount of experience on every part of the animation process from this project. A lot of experimentation was involved and all of our future projects will shine in comparison, but this is our first completed toon and we hope it can give people a taste of our humor.
