A leading authority on voice-over and Chief Edge Officer of Edge Studio, David Goldberg has cast and directed thousands of voice-over productions. He has also coached innumerable voice actors, from beginners to top working pros and celebrities.
David says, “Although I don’t have a golden voice, I guess my ears work pretty well.”
Indeed. David’s ears are considered the best in the industry.
He’s known for an uncanny ability to provide super-quick yet precise direction. Because he sees things from all industry perspectives, many veteran voice actors rely on him as their mentor. David is also one of the most active directors and speakers, frequently illustrating his practical answers with fun anecdotes from his many years of experience.
Soon after founding Edge Studio as a music-recording facility in 1988, David added spoken voice recording to its repertoire. In response to many clients asking him for voice over guidance, David wrote the first edition of the ‘Voice Over Performance Guidebook’ in 1992.
Since 2000, Edge Studio has focused exclusively on spoken voice, and is now one of the world’s premiere voice over facilities.
Clients and agents rely on David Goldberg’s ability to pinpoint the right voice actor for their production. Voice actors rely on his ability to help them find their full potential, benefiting from his perception, straight-forwardness, production savvy, and those acute ears.

A native Midwesterner and graduate of Washington University in St. Louis, Andrew Warner moved to the Big Apple to work in arts and entertainment. He brings all of his skills and experiences to bear as a member of the Edge Studio team. In the past, Andrew has counseled students, produced short films, and overseen projects at prestigious educational institutions including The Juilliard School and Interlochen Arts Academy. In addition, Andrew has worked at prominent post-production houses like Company 3, where he was a Production and Operations Manager working on commercials for a myriad of products including Progressive, Weight Watchers, Dos Equis, and Apple and critically-acclaimed films such as Drive, The Place Beyond the Pines, and the Oscar-winning Best Picture 12 Years a S***e.
In all his operational responsibilities, his ultimate goal was always to give students the tools necessary to become successful performing artists and give clients exactly what they needed on time and on budget. And that has been his approach here at Edge to every student who desires a professional education and every client that needs their voice over work produced at the highest standard of quality. Andrew started his tenure at edge back in 2014 as the Director of Education before moving into the position of Managing Director in 2019.
In his free time, Andrew Warner is a rather serious film buff, found more often than not at various movie theatres around the city, basking in the glow of the silver screen. Ask him about his pride and joy, the massive trove of Criterion Collection releases he has gathered together over the last 25 years (long live physical media!). He also has an extensive background in performance, and can be seen on stage with various improvisational and sketch comedy teams around NYC. Among his more deliberative creative endeavors, Andrew has written screenplays, short fiction and comedy sketches, and has a bachelor’s degree in Art History & Archaeology.
Amanda Rose Smith
Amanda Rose Smith was originally a musician, still is. But after earning a BA in Music Composition from Smith College, she discovered that she loved recording as much as composing. So she moved to NYC where she completed a Masters Degree in Music Technology at New York University. Since then she’s worked as a live sound engineer and at post production houses throughout the city, on various projects including music, film, television, video games, audiobooks and commercials. She served as an ADR engineer on Season 2 of Netflix‘s “Orange Is The New Black,” and dialogue editor for Telltale Games’ “The Walking Dead: The Game.”
Meanwhile, Amanda continues to compose music, and loves most things Star Trek, and scuba diving.
Amanda Rose Smith is well versed in Pro Tools, Reaper, Twisted Wave, Audacity and other software, is experienced with the most popular VO mics, and – having edited and mastered 500+ audiobooks – knows post-production, too. As one of the Edge Studio staff available for remote and on-site consulting, she enjoys travel. In fact, Amanda would like eventually to visit all seven continents. Maybe she can combine these ambitions? Hey, Antarctica, need some hands-on audio guidance?
Andrew Feliciano has been an audio engineer for more than 10 years. He received a degree in computer science in 2001, but with a background in music, he gravitated towards pro audio and found a home in voice-over. In 2008 he recorded Beau Bridges for the audiobook version of “An Inconvenient Truth“, which won a Grammy that year for Best Spoken Word Album. He will finish a graduate degree in business later this year and continues to explore new technology in audio recording and computers. Andrew is an avid rock climber and outdoor enthusiast.
Client Account Manager
Kendra Baker graduated with a degree in Communications from West Virginia University and has utilized what she learned about communicating ever since. While she loves speaking with students and coaches about voice over she prefers to be on the other side of the microphone, guiding students through training. She is part of the very limited crew at Edge that is not a performer. She enjoys helping people overcome their nerves and decide to finally pursue voice over if they have been thinking about it for a while. Being an over-thinker herself, she understands the anxiety starting new endeavors can be like. Nothing is better than watching (and listening) to a person do something they love.
Her suggestion is, if you have been thinking about voice over for a while to bite the bullet and take the Investigate Voice Over Class. The environment is supportive and non-judgmental and almost everyone is proud of themselves for taking this first step and does not regret it. From there it’s just a hop, skip and a jump to the Edge Studio Training Program, and all of a sudden you’re well on your way to a career in voice over. I can’t tell you the number of students who have found success in the time that I have been here to help guide students through their training.
Kendra Baker currently lives in Washington, DC with her husband but was born and raised in a small town below Pittsburgh, PA. She also spent almost 8 years in Toronto so has great love for our northern neighbors, just not their temperatures. When she is not working, she likes to hang out with family and friends and is obsessed with home design. She loves decorating rooms for herself and others and is constantly switching things around or thinking about her next project.
Kevin Schormann has always had a passion for sound. Since joining the Edge Team, he has become a voice over post-production powerhouse, working on ADR, commercials and audiobooks – earning a reputation as both quick and thorough – a patient and creative engineer who’s easy to work with.
Prior to Edge, he attended The Institute of Audio Research. Upon graduation, he worked at Unique Recording Studios. Kevin took this foundation and opened Immortal Sound Studios, where he gained years of experience recording, mixing and mastering a wide array of musical genres.
When not in a control room, Kevin Schormann is skiing, traveling, writing and performing in his band. He began playing guitar at an early age, which has led to a successful 20-year career in the music business. He loves not only music, but animals, the New York Giants and boxing. He also contributes to his family’s home improvement business, where you’ll find him helping out within his local shore community to rebuild after Hurricane Sandy.
Office Manager & Junior Engineer
At the age of five Paul Ketterman (who was named after Paul McCartney of the Beatles) memorized Steve Martin’s, “A Wild and Crazy Guy” which he would recite in living room performances for family members and neighbors. Thirty years later Paul finally moved to New York City from Hampton, Virginia to pursue his dream of performing comedy. One time he even made twenty dollars doing it. Paul has honed his administration and audio video skills in some pretty diverse venues such as record stores and video stores, editing military training videos, television production for MTV and The Discovery Channel, owning his own UPS store and working for Tory Burch.
Paul Studied Improv at The Upright Citizens Brigade, The PIT and The Annoyance Theaters. When he’s not holding down the fort at Edge, he can be found around the city performing with his improv team GLORY HAIM. Paul is also a voracious collector of things. He collects The Incredible Hulk and X-men comics from Marvel Comics and Swamp Thing from DC Comics. He has a VHS collection of over 1000 horror and cult films from companies like Troma, Wizard and Midnight Video. A large vinyl record collection focused on genres like Shoegaze, Punk Rock, Metal and his favorite band The Cure. Paul also has a collection of Ibanez and Fender guitars which he plays poorly. Paul has a certificate in mindfulness meditation guidance and encourages everyone to learn how to meditate for at least 15 minutes a day as it can greatly reduce depression and anxiety. Paul would also like you to know that he loves tacos, dogs and cats, and podcasts like W*F with Marc Maron and The Last Podcast on the Left. Paul Ketterman lives in the Bronx with his wife who is the film coordinator for Grand Central Terminal and their cat Pumpkinhead.
Director of Finance
One day shy of her eighteenth birthday, Sara Huber made her way across the Hudson River from New Jersey and settled into the place she always knew she was meant to be. After graduating from NYU with a dual major in Economics and Journalism, Sara began a career in the fashion industry, working alongside a then-unknown designer, learning how to build an empire from the ground up. Through an eclectic resume of other roles, Sara learned the ins and outs of bookkeeping, tax filing, international logistics, operations and how to source just about anything. Replying to a temp ad one day, Sara was sent from the agency directly to meet with Edge Studio Managing Director Andrew Warner on site, then invited back to meet owner and founder David Goldberg the following day. Proving she was meant to be a part of the team, she received a call with an offer just under 50 hours after submitting her resume. Two months later, she became a permanent member of the Edge family.
As perhaps the sole Edge Studio employee without a performance background, the only chance of catching Sara on tv will be if she receives an invitation to compete on Jeopardy! Until then, Sara Huber enjoys doing the New York Times crossword puzzle (only on Saturdays) and traveling around the world, from Finland to Fiji to France.
