One day, at the Great Neck Public Access Channel, the voice talent didn’t show up to record a commercial. Adriana Davis was a producer at the station when the Program Director asked her to voice the commercial. He said, “Your voice makes me smile.” So, she did which began her career in voice acting and coaching aspiring voice actors.
Adriana Davis began work in television, film and radio as a producer, writer, editor and voice actor. Her credits include productions for MTV, A&E, History Channel, NBC News, PBS and Animal Planet.
She founded D-Squared Media, a New York City production company to produce and voice independent films, corporate videos, radio and internet programming. Her films range from the romantic comedy “PLAY IT BY EAR” starring Academy Award® winner Rita Moreno to the children’s music video “Monkey Bars” and the WNEW-FM radio series “Courageous Radio.”
Ms. Davis is also the proud co-director, editor and writer of an acclaimed documentary series about Iraq’s Jewish community that have screened at festivals and on television worldwide. In addition, her timely documentary “WHAT’S FOR LUNCH” profiles the struggling NY City school lunch program serving over 800,000 meals a day.
