"Thanks for a good work for both Ericsson and Husqvarna. Both me and my client are very pleased with your work." - Per Nordbring, TMP.se

Ericsson / Husqvarna

I'm very glad to be aware of your talent. I'm always looking for good VO artists who know how to read long copy. Most everything we do in our 7 markets is editorial in nature and it's hard to find talent that really shines in this History / Discovery Channel type of VO.

Garth Bandell, The Tourist Network

"Outstanding! Thanks so much."
