I am a reliable and dependable VO with a personal business background which focused on meeting and exceeding client expectations. I endeavor to do the same now in the VO world.
I work full time from my personal studio which means I am available for immediate hire and turnaround times are fast. For projects up to 5 minutes in length you can expect audio back from me within 24 hours of script receipt and often much sooner than that.

Ian had to stand in for a very complicated role we just couldn't nail, taking over the whole role in the game from scratch and he delivered in the same deadline what others had only 1-2 chapters to do within, with a perfect feel for the Psyker.
