Testimonials

★★★★★ Mike is currently working with us doing bilingual voiceover for our training videos. Mike always delivers a very polished, high-quality product. He's inquisitive and passionate about details, which makes him a delight to work with. Mike is always deadline-conscious and eager to go back and make changes / corrections when it is in the best interests of the project. To date, Mike has done the voiceover for 23 individual videos for us and we hope to have him on our team for years to come. I highly recommend him.

★★★★★ I highly recommend Mike as a professional Voice Talent, especially for his bilingual abilities. He can flawlessly switch between English and French Canadian with no accent. His range of tones and styles is also impressive. He's meticulous, turns projects around quickly, and is also understanding when waiting for feedback and approvals. I will eagerly hire Mike again in the future.

★★★★★ Thank you so much for the fantastic service. Initially we were apprehensive to even look into this option for our phone system as we assumed it would be complicated and expensive. Were we ever wrong!
The whole process was simple, fast and the outcome was fantastic.
Mike was very pleasant and easy to work with and we could not be happier with the new vocals.
It sounds professional and both languages are impeccable. The accents are 100% perfect for both.
I would highly recommend Mike and his services for any type of recordings.

★★★★★ Mike has been wonderful to work with. He was readily available for a short notice request recently and provided a top quality performance in less than 24 hrs from the time we reached out to him. What makes him unique is his ability to stay open minded, take directions and give suggestions if needed, because that's what a real talent does when they care about your project. I would definitely work with Mr. Tobin again.

★★★★★ We were very pleased with Mike's services as our voice talent on a series of web-based learning modules. He understood immediately the tone we were looking for and was able to deliver flawlessly in both French and English, ensuring that we could keep our communications consistent in both official languages. He was also very professional along every step of the way, and was very prompt and accommodating with any revisions that we needed. The quality of his output was top-notch and we will certainly be hiring him again for future projects.

★★★★★ I've worked with Mike on voiceovers for video projects several times over the past few months, and the fact that it's been on several projects in a row is a testimonial in itself: he was so great to work with the first time, I just keep coming back for more. He's very quick and responsive, great with specific direction when needed, very accommodating to my sometimes tight timelines, and the resulting voiceover recordings sound great too. Always a pleasure, Mike... looking forward to next time!
