Back to the Big D this weekend for another round of PROJECT A-KON. This time, they are in a brand spanking new venue: the newly renovated Anatole. Super thrilled to return to what was my first anime con as a fan, and as industry. Here is my schedule. Hope you can make it:
5p Dork Forest podcast (Grand Ballroom A-B)
10-10:30p Gaming with the Stars
11:15-1:15 Geek Talk (18+)
12:15-1:45p Voices In My Head (group panel, Grand Ballroom D-E)
8p-10p Cosplay (host, Channtilly Ballroom)
11a-2p Sunday Brunch (ticketed event, Channtilly Ballroom)
4-5:30p Voice Actor Cold Read (Grand Ballroom A-B)
Heading back to one of my all time favorite cons in Raleigh, North Carolina: ANIMAZEMENT. They’ve got a great guest lineup, including several Dragonball Z Japanese voice actors (Masako Nozawa, Toshio Furukawa, Yuko Minaguchi, Ryusei Nakao). My dub cohorts, Christine Cabanos, Kara Edwards and Sean Schemmel are also along for the shenanigans. I’m very blessed to be a repeat guest at this fantastic event. And to say it is an honor to get to meet and mingle with some DBZ cast members from Japan is, indeed, an understatement. Here is where you can see me:
12:30p-1:30p Autographs (Room 301A)
6p-7p Geek Talk (Room 302C)
10:30am-11:30am Video Game Voice Acting (Room 302C)
12p-1p Autographs (Room 301A)
3p-4p Dragonball Z Panel (English and Japanese VAs in Room 401AB)
11a-12p Anime Radio (Room 302B)
While I continue to record for the shows-that-have-no-ending-in-sight (Naruto, Bleach), I have been also working on shorter titles, some of which have made a successful launch on Neon Alley (via the PS3 and Xbox360). One of those titles is now available on dvd and blu ray: NURA- RISE OF THE YOKAI CLAN.
I play this handsome dude, Aotabo/Kurotabo.
If you’re in Los Angeles, come on downtown to Little Tokyo on Sunday, April 28 for TOMO NEKO MAID CAFE. The lovely dub cast ladies of Madoka Magica will be on hand, as well as Dino Andrade. Hope to see ya there! We’ll all be raising money for the Trevor Project charity.
* 12:30-1PM: Opening Ceremonies

This weekend is bittersweet. Due to a total brain fart, I accidentally double booked conventions and have to, extremely unfortunately, miss Anime Detour’s 10th anniversary. My sincere apologies to those who were looking forward to seeing me there. A huge shout out, high fives, and hugs, to the staff and attendees at Detour. Hope I can see you for year eleven!
The upside is that I’m returning to my birth place: Lake Charles, Louisiana. CYPHACON is entering its 3rd year and this time they reached out to a “local” for their guest of honor. The con’s theme is anime, gaming, and sci-fi. I haven’t been to my hometown in many years. Can’t wait to feast on some authentic Cajun cuisine again, and maybe sneak over to their famous riverboat casino.
I’ll have a table setup for autographs with various times posted throughout the weekend. Meanwhile, here is my panel schedule:
4:30pm Meet and Greet (Marriott Spring Hill Suites)
5:30-8p Gold Pass Dinner (Lauberge Buffet)
8p-10p Dragonball Evolution Roast (LCCC-Panel Room B)
9:30am Opening Ceremonies (LCCC-10 Forward Lounge)
1p Q and A (LCCC-10 Forward Lounge)
5p Video Game Voice Acting (LCCC – Panel Room C)
6-7p Cosplay *judge (LCCC-10 Forward Lounge)
12p Geek Talk
