At the age of eight, Snyder was hired by his father as a voice talent for an animated special starring Sterling Holloway. Snyder continued doing kids' voices alongside Gary Owens, June Foray and others until his voice changed. He was promptly fired by his producer father.

He frequently lectured and led screenwriting workshops in the United States, Europe and Asia. See more »
