Team

Keith Reynolds

Co-Founder and CEO

Keith spent his early 20s working in famous but dirty recording studios in New York, producing projects for various media and even playing keys for Lauryn Hill. He was still sleeping on couches and floors when he got a gig at Audible.com, becoming one of the top audiobook directors for Audible Studios. He even got to work with some famous humans and direct a few award-winning audiobooks.

After many years of directing at Audible and having had enough winter, Keith relocated to Dallas, Texas, the hometown of his beautiful and far-more-impressive-than-he wife. Dallas also happens to be home to a thriving voiceover industry, which worked out nicely for him as he is utterly unqualified to work as a banker, rancher or hipster. Keith no longer sleeps on floors but does enjoy the occasional couch nap.

Alia Tavakolian

Executive Producer

Alia spent her college years learning to juggle and roll around on the ground–some people call it theater school–at Southern Methodist University. While there, she focused on directing and production and found herself in Iran following an underground dance troupe.

She has produced and directed independent theater in Dallas and was one of the creators of Dallas’ popular Shakespeare in the Bar series. Alia has since transitioned from the stage to the studio by way of the corporate startup world. When she isn’t overseeing content at Spoke Media, she is coming up with creative ways to prank those she loves.
