About the Executive Goth

Taliesin Axelrod Jaffe was born on January 19, 1977. On that fateful Wednesday, Los Angeles was unusually warm, almost as if the Nine Hells were reaching up to celebrate the birth of our Dark Lord of all that is goth.

Born to a long line of intense feminism and hippiedom, child Taliesin went on to take the silver screen by storm with his deceptively cherubic looks in iconic films such as Mr. Mom (1983). At age 13, he shed the stifling shackles of the Hollywood "actor look", dyed his hair a ridiculous colour, and welcomed the sweet embrace of black eyeliner.

Once the Vampire Prince of LA, he now captures our hearts and minds with his signature best terrible ideas and force of personality. You can find him voicing and directing many characters in anime, cartoons, and video games, and playing Dungeons & Dragons on Thursday nights with fellow nerdy-ass voice actors on the Geek & Sundry Twitch channel.

Taliesin still lives in Los Angeles where he keeps cats, chickens, and an army bees. Also, he is uncle to an adorable cinnamon green-cheeked conure named Dagon who has an unfortunate coffee addiction. We wish them the best.
