FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Ashley Russo Grows Edge Studio’s West Coast Operations
LOS ANGELES, CA, SEPTEMBER 16, 2013 – David Goldberg, CEO of Edge Studio – a leading provider of spoken-word recording, casting, and training of voice over actors – welcomes Ashley Russo to the Edge team as an Education Advisor. Russo, a working voice over actor and California native, will work out of Los Angeles and play an integral role in building Edge Studio’s West Coast presence.
Russo will work closely with the Director of Education, Joey Schaljo, and the Edge executive team in building new educational programs geared to the working pro. Her recent involvement in creating the Voiceregistry product for voice over actors at Voicebank.net makes her the perfect addition to the Edge team. Additionally, her first-hand experience as a represented SAG-AFTRA voice actor affords her a unique perspective when helping design educational programs.
“I’m inspired and excited to work for a growing organization with a phenomenal reputation. Their integrity combined with their vision and strong infrastructure, ensure that our new programs will make a significant difference for voice actors, agents, and casting directors,” says Russo.
Russo is not the only one excited about the new opportunity. Dean Panaro, agent at Abrams Artists Agency, says, “Ashley is an extremely talented voice actor and an innovative thinker in the voice over world. ThroughVoicebank.net she created programs for voice actors that have been breakthroughs in voice over training. I’m certain her new role at Edge Studio will lead to even more amazing opportunities for voice actors, agents and producers. I’m one of her many fans.”
David Goldberg is one of the country’s most active voice over producers and coaches, and the Edge Studio CEO (Chief Edge Officer). Says Goldberg, “Ashley’s enthusiasm, passion and talent have made her a fixture in the Los Angeles voice acting community, on both sides of the mic.
