2018: A Summary

Plenty of negativity transpired this year. Oh, how easy it would be to focus on the bad. Rather than do that, I’m gonna do my best to reflect on some cool stuff that I was fortunate enough to be a part of this year and just neat things that have happened. I believe I started…

Fandom IS Universal

When I speak at schools, libraries, conventions and so on, I feel it is important to talk about my multi-ethnic upbringing. Coming from two drastically different cultures and being a geek on top of that wasn’t always the easiest thing as a kid or a fan. And seeing myself represented in fandoms was often difficult…

One of Few – Sneak Peek #2

I had the opportunity to talk with Doug Engler and Darcy Abramson of Anime Zing Radio about some of my voiceover work (Interviews with Monster Girls, Girls und Panzer der Film, Fairy Tail, The Thunderbird series, etc) as well as One Of Few. The interview can be heard here (I’ll pop in around the 33…

2016 Highlights

Rang in the New Year surrounded by friends and a guy crazy enough to be my partner in crime. Ah, 2016… yes, it wasn’t all golden. Rather than focus on the bad (of which there was a lot), I decided to think about all the cool things that happened over the past year. Firsts in 2016:…

Tokyo in Tulsa Pt. 3

Tokyo in Tulsa… Ah, what can I say about a convention that’s crazy enough to ask me back for the third time? Oh. Right. THANK YOU! I’ve said it more than a few times, but TnT is just one of those cons that feels like a reunion. The staffers are amazing, the attendees ask fantastic…

Animaine Highlights Part III: The Reckoning

Okay, so that title makes it seem like I was out for revenge or something. FAR FROM IT! I’ve annoyed countless friends, coworkers, and strangers with my love of many things Maine. What’s not to love? Old Port is great to walk around, local shops/restaurants can’t be ignored, and the scenery… Ah! But the biggest…

Anime Milwaukee Highlights

This is the second year in a row that I’ve been away for Valentine’s Day. Lucky for me and The Hubs, we’re not really fans of the holiday. I actually was more bummed when I realized I’d be missing a Friday the 13th. But there will be another one this month, so we’re good. “Why…

Kollision Con Highlights

Just got back in from Kollision Con in Rosemont, Illinois. I joined guests such as Robert Axelrod, Paul St. Peter, Trevor Mueller, and oh-so-many more! Gotta say, I had quite the blast. Felt like I was just hanging out with friends all weekend. Got picked up from the airport by an adorable dude by the…

Rose City Anime Festival

Here is typically the part where I apologize for the lack of posting, but I think we’ve established that I’ve been a busy little bee. A fact that I’m pretty freakin’ happy about. Though it was a couple weeks ago now, I definitely feel the need to talk about my short time in Camrose, Alberta….

Tokyo In Tulsa 2014 Highlights

Can you believe the folks at Tokyo in Tulsa were crazy enough to ask me back? Well, I guess you know the answer to that since you’re reading this post…. Moving on. This year I was accompanied by Cherami Leigh, Stephen Radney-Macfarland, Cynthia Cranz, Jeremy Inman, DJ Imza, Wendy Powell, FEMM, Peter Pixie, The Chalk…
