Your project is my number one priority! It is very important to me to be seen as someone who is flexible, and very easy to work with. I always have my phone on and my email open, ready to communicate.
Quick turnaround, professional result and very accommodating. I'd recommend Matt without reservation.EDM Studio Inc.
Matt was not only fast, but also friendly, helpful, precise and, oh yeah, AWESOME. His characterizations were exactly what we wanted, and due to his talents we are slightly ahead of our production schedule! Definitely a go-to guy, and you can count on him finding his way onto your favorites list. Five stars.Marathon Petroleum
Amazing work! We got the perfect recording within only a couple of hours. Looking forward to collaborate with Matt again!Adventure Films
Working with Matt was a phenomenal experience!! He implemented very specific guidance regarding emotional tone, pace, pauses, and other requirements, and he provided samples before completing our full script to ensure that he would get it right. His turnaround time was extremely quick, and he was very professional and responsive with his communication. He was also remarkably patient with us as our project underwent some unexpected delays and changes.Benjamin Farber; Biostream Technologies
