Russell is one of the best VO artist we have worked with to date and was perfect for our script.

On top of that Russell is a true professional who obviously has many years experience dealing with business's and clients and without mentioning anything offers a truly professional experience even if we are sometimes asking a bit much.

He delivered high quality audio and took on notes very well adapting and accommodating us totally.

Russell should be in every producers black book.
