Steven Jay Cohen

Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, I started my professional life doing both Sound and Lighting Design on New York’s Theatre Row (in theaters like The Houseman, The Fairbanks, and The Music Box). In addition to acting, I also wrote, produced, and directed a number of shows in smaller venues. And, along the way, I studied acting with people like F. Murray Abraham, Emelie FitzGibbon, William Prosser, Dorothy Heathcote, Carol Monda, and Johnny Heller, as well as writing with Alan Ginsberg, Aurand Harris, and Frank McCourt.

I spent a few years as an Accent Coach and as a more traditional educator before leaving New York for western Massachusetts. While raising my family here, I have continued to teach (everything from Stagecraft to British Literature), as well as write, perform, (and develop software from time to time).

Since the advent of the Web, and podcasting in particular, I have been both performing and producing new works online for a global audience. The freedom and flexibility of the Internet has made it possible for me to assemble a team of incredible talent from places as far flung as Northern Europe, the Middle East, and New Zealand.

In recent years, I have built a fully-equipped, professional recording studio in my home, where I now record and produce on a regular basis.
