I was fortunate to be able to work with this amazing talent. His narration is superb but where he stands out to me is the range and versatility Steve has. Very easy to work with, great equipment and just a pure professional in every sense. I have worked with a number of voice talents in the past and can say confidently none match this guy. From simple voice over to complex voice acting you won't be disappointed.JK Franks Author "Catalyst Downward Cycle"
