Doug Shapiro (dougshapiro.com)(IG: @fearless_mensch)(LI:@dougshapiro) My guiding values are Love and Integrity.  I lead with Kindness. What Tom Hanks said recently in accepting his Cecil B. DeMille award at the 2020 Golden Globes resonated strongly with me:  Show up on time, know your lines, and then go there with a head full of ideas. I’m paraphrasing, but this is what I always strive to bring to what we’ll create together. Voicing your cartoon, singing your musical, role-playing with your executives, narrating your audiobook, all of it.My career has found me, for the most part, playing several characters at a time with only a week of rehearsal. I've voiced several characters for Disney's FINDING NEMO: THE MUSICAL Toured the nation as the MC and principal vocalist for a 15-piece 1940's big band Played most of Shakespeare's women in less than ninety minutes, and Been a proud acting company member with The Barnstormers in Tamworth, NH going on 20 years. Lately, my life has opened up to narrating audiobooks and role-playing with executives and future medical professionals.
