Fall 2019 Update!

It’s been, what, over a year since I last updated here? There’s far too much that’s happened since then to put in one post, so I’m just going to give the highlights!

At the beginning of 2019, I was lucky enough to be working on Season 2 of Ace Attorney at Funimation! This show has been so much fun to work on, and of course we always hope for more seasons of every show we do! (Ok, but seriously, looking at you Overlord Season 4! Where you at?). Voicing Franziska has taught me a lot, and let’s be honest, who doesn’t want to shout “Objection” and call people “foolish fool” all the time?

We could all use a little more Franziska in our lives, am I right? Anybody want a Season 3 of Ace Attorney?

Can we also talk about how I celebrated my three year anniversary at Funimation in September this year? I can’t believe it’s already been three years! I’ve gotten to voice some fantastic characters! Head over to my anime page to hear some of these awesome ladies!

I did a bunch of shows onstage this year, including a murder mystery melodrama (Ravenscroft), a children’s classic with the best score ever (The Secret Garden), and a hilarious farce where a reviewer called me and my scene partner “dense” (accurate), and they hoped it was a character choice (Anything Goes). So. Winning.

I started recording Audiobooks this year! You can check out samples over on my audiobooks page, and of course, you can find them all on audible! I’ve got more in production right now, so keep an eye out for those in 2020!

In August, I signed with the incredible Campbell Agency for Voice Over! So exciting! I’ve been working on projects through them for the past few months, and it’s been amazing to get into the commercial side of VO. I love it more with each recording session! I can’t wait to share the projects I’ve been working on! I’ve got some EXCITING news that I can’t share yet, but I’m literally dying to tell everyone.

I can honestly say that Voice Over is my favorite form of acting that I’ve ever done. I don’t know what it is. I love being in the booth!

And the most recent news, I recently signed with Campbell for On Camera as well! Woohoo!

To close out the year, I’m Christmas Caroling again with the Goode Time Carolers of Dallas!

It was like, 75 degrees out when we took this picture. So thanks, Texas.

This will be my 5th year caroling, and I love it! I missed doing it last year, and I’m so thrilled to be back. We’re all ready to spread Christmas cheer this season! Head over to the website if you’re in need of some ambassadors of the spirit of the season for your Christmas party!

In non-acting related news, I’m coming up on my one year anniversary teaching with VIPKid! This is the best “survival job” I can imagine. These kids are so smart, so funny, and so sweet. I get to teach kids from 4 years old to about 14, and each class is interesting in different ways! They work incredibly hard and I love learning about China and their culture as we talk in each class. I’m always willing to talk about this awesome job if anyone is looking for more work that you can schedule yourself, do from home in your pajamas, and not have to turn down auditions for! Leave me a comment if you want to know more!

It’s amazing how much we do in one year! Here’s to an equally exciting 2020! Thanks for checking in!
