“I've worked with Mike on various occasions and I can honestly say that he is one of the best voice-over actors I met in my career. He works fast, is highly professional, delivers impeccable quality and is a pleasure to communicate with. A STRONG recommend!”

“We've worked with Mike on several projects. Mike is able to respond quickly and record the necessary material within a very short period of time. His tone of voice can be described as fresh, young and really stands out from the rest. We'll certainly work with him in the future and can recommend his services to anyone.”

“I've worked with Mike on dozens of animations at lilipip! studios and without question he consistently delivers solid voice over tracks for a wide range of client needs. What's more, his demand never ceases to end as he is often asked for from reference to the portfolio he has accumulated with us. He's our go to guy, and we're really lucky to be working with him so often.”


“Mike is a great professional at his craft. The voice work we get is always of the highest quality and right on time. He understands the various demands companies run into and is willing to be partner-focused and adapt. He's been a pleasure to work with over the past few years on many different projects.”
