"Yes, I did get a copy from Sonic Team when it was completed and I think itís a great game! I got to see most of the animation while we were in the studio recording the voices, so I knew it was going to be really amazing. I love the speed of the game play. Believe me, Iíve spent more than a few hours running that hedgehog all over the place!"
(on becoming a voice actor)
"Being from a theatrical background, voice training has been a part of my education from day one. I learned all about breath control, pitch, vowel placement, etc.. Itís always been fun to see what I can make my voice do. I was VERY lucky to meet the right people in the VO business. Itís an INCREDIBLY hard thing to get into. There are a lot of people who would like to do what I do and many are really good at it. I give thanks every day that I had the good fortune to meet the right people at the right time and have really great auditions! It took time and patience to get where I am now."
