Ralph's two decades of talent agency and major studio experience at the highest levels promises great things for Capital and I am glad to be asked to play a part in their future success. Ralph has worked with a “Who's Who list” in the voiceover industry, and I am very glad to be part of the growing Capital Talent fold as I continue to expand my professional representation collaborations across the country.”
