Who We Are
Bryan Friedman

A native of Southern California, Bryan has always been something of a pop culture junkie with a particular love for movies, television, and theatre. He is also a dedicated LA Dodgers fan. Not seeing a future in either entertainment or sports, Bryan attended California Polytechnic State University and graduated with a degree in Computer Science, now working as a Product Manager for a cloud computing company. He lives in Southern California with his wife, two daughters, and trusty sidekick dog Princeton.

Michael Rosenblum

Originally from New York, Michael came out to Los Angeles in 2010 to pursue a voice over career. A dedicated NY sports fan, he grew up playing baseball, but also always wanted to work in animation, as evidenced by his love of cartoons such as The Simpsons, Animaniacs, Rocky & Bullwinkle, Family Guy, and others. Michael attended Northwestern University and graduated with a degree in Theatre. He now lives in Southern California with his wife and son.
