Testimonials

“David is a real pro. I have worked with him several times and each time he has not only provided consistent quality. Equally important, he could also teach a class in customer relations... easy to work with, revisions handled quickly and with good spirits, and extremely fast turnarounds.
All in all, a prototype for a professional VO artist, and I recommend him highly.”

Frank Frehill - President of PrimeLook Inc. ( A Voices.com Client)

"David Gavin is undoubtedly one of the finest talents I've worked with in over 30 years in the business. His lighting quick responsiveness to a fast turnaround for the Congressional Medal of Honor Freedom Gala's tribute to the former Secretary of State, George Schultz, was nothing short of remarkable. David's spot-on read set just the right tone and cadence to honor this historic man at an event of national importance. David is at the top of my list to call on for our next project."

Stephen Pruitt - Owner, The Mountainview Group (A Voices.com client)

“David was an absolute pleasure to work with. We had a deadline fast approaching and needed to get to the design phase of the project. Without even having to tell David this he got right to work on the project and came back with a finished product the very same day that was extremely well done. We will definitely use David again for future design:success projects.”

Kim Norland and Terry Smith at Design:Success (A Voices.com client)

Kim Norland - Worldwide President & CEO design:success & Anstratus

“David has exceeded my (very high) expectations with his voice-over interpretation of the business presentation texts I've written.
Without the need of explanations, agreements, testing and trials, he autonomously understood the content, the target audience, the context of the presentation and thus the required tone and the "soul" of the voice. He matched the communication needs naturally like he would have been the actual author of the script and the main responsible for the delivery of the message.
I will continue to seek his professional support for the foreseeable time.” February 4, 2012

Luigi Negri - VP Northern Europe at CR Bard

I recently worked with David on a TV spot with a very tight turnaround. We were looking for a certain vocal quality/personality, and David fit the bill. He was a complete professional and went above and beyond to make sure we were happy with the results. Our client was thrilled with the end product, as was everyone at my agency. David will certainly be top of mind next time we need VO work.

Kristen Purdy Benel - Digital Producer / Project Manager at IQ Agency

A true professional. David went above and beyond to work with me throughout a recent video project and really helped take it to a new level! His knowledge of the industry and appreciation for tight timelines is evident and his personality and communication skills were a big factor in how well the project came together. I'm looking forward to working with David again.
