Along with JP’s impressive voiceover work and acting, he is also a multi-award-winning writer for his autobiographical one-act project, Donna/Madonna’ telling the story of wanting to be the perfect son for his adoptive mother; a delicate Catholic housewife from Scranton, PA. JP is also the creator of the Queer Vox Academy, a hub and learning space for queer voice actors that offer classes and workshops, public industry panels, interactive discord community, as well as private industry roundtables. Since we are in an election year, it is worth bringing up that JP is heavily involved with NerdsVote, which is an operation to get convention guests to register to vote.
