Sean Chiplock

A professional voice-over artist currently living in Lomita, California. An avid fan of video games since his early childhood, Sean was already ‘dubbing’ over the voiceless games of the 90s and early 00s well before he understood that there was an entire industry dedicated to exactly that job! Throughout his college curriculum in Michigan, Sean was already beginning his freelance career and studying up on the ‘knowhow’ of the industry alongside his Honors classes; in fact, he participated in Anime Expo’s “AX Idol” VO competition in 2009, becoming the first male (and youngest competitor) to win the Grand Prize since their inception in 2003.

Immediately upon graduation, Sean set out to California to pursue the career more seriously, and in the 4 years he’s been living there his portfolio has already shown impressive results. Examples of his recent roles include lead role REAN SCHWARZER in Trails of Cold Steel (part of XSEED’s most well-known franchise), RASH THE BATTLETOAD in Killer Instinct, CASSIM in Magi: Labyrinth of Magic, and KIYOTAKA ISHIMARU in the immensely popular game series DanganRonpa. Other roles have included DIABEL (Sword Art Online), SPADE/DAIL (Freedom Planet), Zenke (Fairy Fencer F), and Ozma/Gruda/Leo (Ys: Memories of Celceta). And that’s just the stuff he’s currently allowed to talk about! Sean is also an active gamer, both casual and competitive; he boasts a ranking as one of the top-placing Megaman users in “Super Smash Bros. for WiiU/3DS”, and between his PC/Vita/3DS and major consoles has experienced a wide range of the very types of games he hopes to continue voicing for.
