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. Kendra is someone that “sweats the small stuff,” which has come in handy in the Production Department. She constantly rechecks details to ensure that projects will run smoothly, on time, and on budget.
She started her career at Edge in the Education Department, working hands-on with new and established voice over actors. This experience has helped her understand and respect voice over from both a client and a talent perspective.
Kendra currently lives in Washington, DC, with her husband. She was born and raised in a small town below Pittsburgh, PA. She also spent almost eight years in Toronto, so she has a great love for our northern neighbors, just not their winter 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.

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 television 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.

A singer since age three, an actor since age five, and a pianist since age seven, his years of musical theatre (and eventually show choir) and choral training afforded him in-depth vocal training and he soon graduated from Pace University in New York City with a BFA in Acting.
During his time in New York City, Joshua has gone on to music direct and compose for Fringe Festival works, graced the Off-Broadway stage both as a performer and a stagehand, led and directed an improv comedy troupe, and narrated for live theatrical presentations.

As a voice actor, Joshua has also provided his voice for both live and recorded narration for a number of presentation events, hosted several orientations, English dubbing for foreign language film, and promotional material for coffee houses, music stores, and more. Aside from work and the arts, Joshua’s favorite things are spending time with his love, friends, and family, and has begun to develop a real soft spot for cooking.

So she moved to NYC where she completed a Masters Degree in Music Technology at New York University.

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.”

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.

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.
