He can perform a large selection of tones and inflections from crazy cartoon character to respectable business man.

Customer satisfaction is his number one priority. As a consumer Ilja loves good service. As a service provider he will fly the extra mile to make sure you get what you pay for and more. His outstanding skills as a copywriter and his flawless Standard German guarantees you 100 percent authenticity of your script. Ilja is always more than happy to help to bring your text to life.
