Hi! I’m Laci. I LOVE being behind the mic, working on TV & radio commercials, video games, animated cartoons, interactive books, web explainer videos, audiobooks, toys, and more. It’s no wonder that clients like Nintendo, Epson, and Sephora have booked me to voice their projects!
I grew up in a tiny mountain town in California near Yosemite, often following my dad to his work at a computer game company. There, I watched voice actors, foley artists, and animators collaborate each day, and was inspired to pursue a creative career of my own. I’ll never forget sitting in the studio, watching “elves” and “princesses” record their lines while I colored on copies of their character model sheets. It was an exciting, whimsical world that I wanted to be a part of too!
While attending CSU Northridge and The Art Institute and getting my degree in animation, I honed my improv and live narration skills working as a Universal Studios Tour Guide (imagine doing a 2 hour narration while giant mechanical gorillas and sharks attack you! It was the best!).
I also have worked as a performer at the Disneyland Resort, where I played “Mom Elias” in the Innoventions Dream Home, gave live technology shows, spoke about the process of animation/Disney history with the Youth Education Series and taught people how to draw Mickey and his friends in the Animation Academy.
I also am very active in musical theater, having played in shows like Grease, Into the Woods, My Fair Lady, Seussical, and Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. I even enjoy taking the chance to direct a few shows now and then. I have a strong singing voice (yes, I grew up mimicking Disney Princesses at the top of my lungs in the shower), and have placed in the finals of vocal competitions like Broadway’s “Wannabe Wicked” sponsored by Universal Citywalk and CMT’s “Taylor Swift Karaoke Contest.” This live performing experience helps me really bring your script to life!
I am constantly learning and studying the field of voiceover work in order to sharpen my skills. That means I’m up on blogs, listening to podcasts, practicing in the studio, working through audio editing tutorials, and reading books about it daily! I am also a member of the World Voices Organization (WoVO), Women in Animation, and the Voxy Ladies.
I guess you could say that I live in cartoon land…and I wouldn’t want it any other way.
