Hi, I’m Tess! I’m a versatile actor with a diverse range of voices.

About Me

I thrive on being creative. Whether through acting, music, painting, drawing, photography, or writing, I’m passionate about making stories and concepts come to life through the creative arts. I grew up in Sydney, Australia, and have also lived in the San Francisco Bay Area–in both places, I love cycling, hiking, and being near the water.
