On the cusp of expanding his New York team David Goldberg, CEO of Edge Studio, has brought Ashley Russo onto the Edge Studio team as an Education Advisor. Russo is a professional voice actor living and working out of Los Angeles, CA. She will play an integral role in building Edge Studio’s West Coast presence.
David Goldberg, one of the country’s most active voice-over producers and coaches, indicated that “Ashley’s enthusiasm, passion and talent have made her a fixture in the Los Angeles voice acting community, on both sides of the mic. She brings an extensive list of contacts – add her creativity to the mix and get ready to see incredible leaps forward for everyone in the voice-over industry.”
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. She is experienced in organizing training opportunities for talent and her first-hand experience as a represented SAG-AFTRA voice actor affords her a unique perspective when helping design educational programs.
LA is the largest US center for animation, dubbing, and looping and with its thriving film industry there is always a need for ambient voice-over work in films. While the LA voice-over scene may seem daunting, the Edge Studio team is there to help prepare talent so they know what they’re doing and where to dive into the pot.
“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.
“Ashley is an extremely talented voice actor and an innovative thinker in the voice-over world,” says Dean Panaro, agent at Abrams Artists Agency. “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.”
