Anything recorded can be cleaned up and delivered within the day
After confirming a role in a project I like to work with the client to find the exact voice they're looking for via Skype, Google Hangouts, or even just over the phone so we can make your project sound like exactly what they're imagining. If the client trusts me to come up with a voice and prefers to stay out of the vocal direction process, that's also fine. Vocal turnaround is incredibly quick. I like to clean up audio (noise removal, grouping takes, removing flubs, etc) within the same day as a recording and I will get it to the client by whatever deadline they choose.
I'm always on call for retakes or changes in the script, if the need arises.
