Testimonials

Videogame Villainess - Maura's work was absolutely fantasic! She perfectly encapsuled exactly what we were looking for in the role of the villainess for our game, as well as supplying us with a number of other diverse character voices, all of which she did in a very short amount of time and nailed them all to a tee on the first take. Highest marks.
