Kirt Graves spent 15 years empowering young people to find their voices through drama, poetry, and literature. His voice adds depth, emotion, and humor to stories spanning dystopian sci-fi, urban & high fantasy, contemporary romance, and most significantly, young adult fiction that reflects his own experience growing up gay in the Midwest. A tenor by training, Kirt brings a singer’s ear to developing charismatic and authentic characters. Off mic, Kirt is a graphic artist, a podcast lover, and an award-winning speech coach. He loves superheroes, drag queens, and a great meal.
Kirt records with an array of professional-quality microphones in his StudioBricks double-walled booth.
