Testimonials

Todd was very detail oriented and anxious to create the product we wanted... not the product he thought we should have. We were able to have ample input during the creation of our imaging products and it wasn't done until we were satisfied. In short, he was great to work with and the end product was of excellent quality and value. The turnaround was awesome...this was as smooth a project as I have had.

Not only does Todd Barsness have a beautiful voice. He has a warm, conversational style that adds credibility to any read. He’s honest, sincere and eager to please. His interpretation skills are great and he takes direction well. Unlike many others, Todd has the unique ability to “mimic” the director when need be. We recommend Todd Barsness every chance we get!
