Personal quotes

  • I'm a huge Wonder Woman fan. I have about 12 coffee mugs at home!
  • The people that are fans of animation are really the people that are keeping the art form of animation alive. If you like cartoons, support the cartoons.
  • I love cartoons, I love comic books and graphic novels. Batman: The Animated Series was a huge influence on me when I was younger.
  • I always knew that I wanted to do voiceovers as part of my career. I just kind of didn't expect it to take off the way it did. I couldn't be happier. I love the chance to play so many different characters every day.
