We really enjoy John Lee and client's love him. He is always professional, on-time, and easy to work with. For the past 22 years, he has been featured as an on-camera spokesperson and/or voice-over talent on many of our commercial and corporate videos. John also completed an overwhelming amount of training video copy for Tyson Foods that was spread out over a year. He is top-notch!

John Lee is the most versatile radio and TV guy we have come across. He has produced many, many radio and TV ads for not only Tire Kingdom, but several other of our commercial and corporate accounts. He also is an excellent copywriter and has done many on-camera projects for us. John has used his singer/songwriter abilities and character voices in several of our wacky projects. He is always gracious with our clients, too, and is well liked among crew members.

Grandpa is the best. He sings to us and makes all our favorite food like mac and cheese, Mexican Street Corn, chocolate pie, cheesecake, and home made bagels! He also lets us turn up the PA system in the garage and play the drums real loud! He reads us stories at night, too! You should hire him!
