Derek did a great job on the project and its always a pleasure to work with him. Even though we did not request to have the audio broken down into small slide pieces, Derek did it for us rather than giving us one long audio piece that we would have had to break down....this saved us hours of project building time. We would highly recommend Derek to others and will be using him for future projects.

5 star service! Great job from Derek Botten! He gave a unique read in the audition that was perfect for my project. He was extremely quick and we got it done the same day. Great job!

Derek was great to work with: prompt, funny, easy-going, and took direction well. He also delivered a wonderfully energetic read of a very technical script that was exactly what my client was looking for.
