Daymond is a Native-American voice artist, actor and performer who has worked for major companies such as Nickelodeon, Warner Brothers Animation, The Hub, NBC, 20th Century Fox, VIZ, SyFy and Random House Audio. He is frequently cast in voiceover work for traditional animation, commercials, film, television, audiobooks and videogames. Though a long-time fan of the genre, he is relatively new to performing anime and is excited for his first major anime role to be a character as epic as Tuxedo Mask.
Daymond currently stars as a series lead in two Nickelodeon shows, “Breadwinners” and “Get Blake,” and guest stars on shows such as “Transformers: Rescue Bots” and “Ever After High.” He has voiced characters in several feature films and has recorded commercial spots for Pepsi, Walmart, Katy Perry, Ubisoft, and many more. In addition, he can be heard in videogames such as Final Fantasy Type-0, The Lego Movie Videogame, Aion: The Tower of Eternity, Falling Skies, Grand Chase, and Fairy Fencer F.
