After getting his start voice acting in Case Closed through help of his friend Christopher Sabat, Troy soon followed on with a massive amount of voice acting including roles in Bleach, Dragon Ball Z, Fullmetal Alchemist, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Naruto, Naruto: Shippuden and One Piece.
He has since went onto voice Loki in Marvel's Avengers Assemble, Ultimate Spider-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy, Steeljaw in Transformers: Robots in Disguise and Batman in the Lego Batman series.
However it was his role in 2005's Brothers in Arms that catapulted Troy into video game voice acting including roles in Red Faction: Guerilla, Resistance 2, Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 (Kanji Tatsumi), Transformers: War for Cybertron and the Sonic Series (Espio the Chameleon) amongst a multitude of others. His roles as Booker DeWitt in Bioshock: Infinite, Joel in The Last of Us, Delsin Rowe in Infamous: Second Son and most recently Sam Drake in Uncharted 4: A Thief's End have since cemented his place in the industry.
