Ese grew up in the heart of Filmland, Hollywood, California. As a child she worked as a film extra and grew to love the entertainment industry as a whole.

At the age of 16, hanging around local recording studios she became a backup studio singer. 

Ese studied voice and music in Hollywood and acting at the Lee Strasberg Institute. She performed as a vocalist internationally. Her love of music brought her to the world of voiceover, the perfect segue from her work in the music and film industry. Her first voiceovers were in the area of corporate narration and commercials. 

She couldn't get enough.

Ese has studied further with Susan Berkley, Tori Hartman, Pat Fraley, Dolores Diehl, Susan Blu, The Groundlings and many others.
