Kara Dennison has turned her love of theatre, art, science fact, science fiction, and costuming into a career that spans formats and genres. With experience in performance, writing, costume-making, hosting, and improvisation, she is a sought-after performer, interviewer, and social media expert at functions in the mid-Atlantic area.
An actress since the age of 7, she has appeared onscreen with the UK-based Westlake Films, voiced multiple characters for Rainbow Puppet Productions, and currently plays the recurring role of Artema Sable in the sci-fi podcast Managlitch City Underground. She is also an award-winning costumer, having won awards for both craftsmanship and presentation at anime and science-fiction conventions along the East Coast.
A convention attendee since 2000 and webcomic artist since 2001, Kara has hosted various con events and panels, both related to her own work and sci-fi and anime topics in general. At present, she is programming staff and main blogger for the Doctor Who convention (Re)Generation Who, interacting with guests and attendees alike and working with the show's cast and crew to bring information to American fans.
Behind the scenes, Kara works as an editor and localization specialist for anime and video game distributors including Crunchyroll, Sekai Project, and Discotek. She has been integral in bringing many well-known titles to English-speaking audiences, including Mazinger Z, Devilman, Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's, and the original sound novel of Higurashi When They Cry. Her work has appeared in the anthologies You and Who, You and Who Else, and The Perennial Miss Wildthyme. She can soon be read in Me and the Starman, You and 42, and a few more she hasn't been cleared to talk about yet.
She lives in Virginia with four guinea pigs and an unreasonable amount of tea. She also loves Arthurian literature, magical girl and giant robot anime, Arby's, and Robin Williams movies.
Kara is available for voice-overs, hosting/interviewing duties, writing projects, and art. Contact her for more information.
