About Me

As a person, I'm many things: Brazilian born and Seattle raised, an ex-vegetarian, Black and non-binary, a fountain of summer camp counselor energy, and an enthusiast for all kinds of media. My journey to living in New York City took me through the Berkshires and upstate New York where I first obtained my Bachelor's degree in psychology and biosocial studies then worked as a dean's assistant for diversity, equity, and inclusion. When not in my booth recording for dubs, video games, or animation, I'm either prepping my next audiobook or working my daytime career as a recruiter in the education industry. I'm blessed to have dabbled in event programming, started an earring collection, written and performed poetry for over a decade, and picked up knitting, all by the age of 25! Voice acting isn't just a career for me—it's about my love for storytelling—and I do my best to bring humanity to my performances and lean into the writer's intentions in every script.

These days, I'm working on books that I love and always on the search for something new! I continue to serve on committees for both the Professional Audiobook Narrators Association and the Audio Publishers Association, and serve as a mentor in the APA's DEI Mentorship program. Find me at home prepping my next contemporary young adult title or buckling in to take off recording an epic space novel!

Training

The drives behind my acting work started with skirmishes through improv alongside years of spoken word poetry and public speaking experiences. When I decided that those backgrounds plus my degree in psychology could only inform my performances so much, I learned from some amazing narrators, voice actors, and casting directors:
