Biography

Kevin Walsh has been performing in front of audiences since he was a kid. His inability to keep his mouth shut in his youth led to his being voted the wittiest member of his high school class. At the age of 17 he landed a job at Walt Disney World in Florida, where he was actually paid to act and speak to large crowds of people as host on great attractions like the Haunted Mansion and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad in the Magic Kingdom and Spaceship Earth at Epcot Center.

After a tour in the United States Navy, Kevin landed his first job as a radio air personality at WTRS in Ocala, Florida. Over the course of a decade in radio, Kevin wrote, voiced and produced well over a thousand commercials, promos, comedy bits, news reports and other broadcast elements.

He eventually left radio to become a web application developer at the height of the dot-com boom, but was frequently asked to announce live events and lend his voice to various projects because of his vocal quality, delivery and experience.

A couple of years ago, Kevin decided the time was right to pursue voice acting in a serious way. He honed his skills with Peter RofĂ© in New York, one of the top voice-over coaches in the country, and assembled a professional-quality digital recording studio in his home. He is now one of the most highly acclaimed new voice actors and live event announcers in the Washington, DC – Baltimore area.

In addition to his voice-over training, Kevin has studied improvisational comedy at the Improv Comedy Club in Washington, DC. He occasionally dabbles in stage and screen acting, appearing onstage at the Kennedy Center Opera House in Washington, DC in the Mariinsky Opera Company’s production of War and Peace, as well as a couple of major motion pictures and national television commercials.

His professional memberships include SAG, AFTRA, the Television, Internet & Video Association of DC, Women in Film & Video and The Actors’ Center in Washington, DC.
