In between Books 1 & 2, we at The Once And Future Nerd had to bid a fond farewell to the wonderful actor Lily Drexler and the brilliant sound designer Sandra Ramirez, whose promising careers took them elsewhere. We wish them the absolute best and thank them for their years of skillful work.
But, with the first Chapter of Book 2 behind us, we wanted to take the opportunity to introduce you all to the newest members of our team. You can always check out the full list of our Cast & Crew on this page, but here are our newest additions:
Shannon Harris – Voicing several characters we’re excited for you to meet…
Shannon Harris, a NYC based actor and writer, is thrilled to join the TOAFN team. In addition to “Once” and “Future,” she is a nerd of the Shakespeare variety, which (in part) led to performing alongside fellow TOAFN cast member Ian Harkins in The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) in the Hamptons last summer. To learn more about Shannon’s work, visit her website TheShannonHarris.com.
Juliet Prather – Voicing Gwen, Ry’y lo-Th’yyt
Juliet Prather is an improvisor, writer, and producer living in New York City who is pumped to be a part of The Once and Future Nerd. She began her training at ColdTowne Theater in Austin, TX where she co-created the all-female comedy festival, BettyFest, and co-produced the sketch comedy show+party, So Juiced. She has since trained at iO Chicago and is currently in the Advanced Study Program at UCB NY. You can see Juliet dancing the sacred dance of improv with her teams, Patio Talk and Flavortown, and performing in the all-female character show she produces, Painted Toe Comedy Hour.
Jared Paul – Production Sound Recording
Jared is a Brooklyn-based audio engineer, excited to have joined the TOAFN crew this season. Other podcast work includes Wolf 359. Other work includes sound design and mixing for film, broadcast, commercials, animation, museum content, and recording/mixing music. If he’s not deep in the studio oblivious to whether it’s day or night, he’s probably off somewhere on his bike, or in the kitchen enjoying a cold brew while cooking up a storm.
Garrett Schultz – Lead Post Production Mixer and Sound Designer
Garrett does post-production sound design and mixing for film, tv, podcasts/radio, and ads. He is a Columbia College Chicago graduate from the Audio Arts and Acoustics department, and has been making sounds and noise for more than half his life. As a serious podcast and audio-drama junkie, he is very happy to be working with TOAFN. You can see (and hear) his work at www.destrieraudio.com.
