I have spent 30+ years in the Corporate customer service business, I believe that when a deadline is promised on any project that is when a finished product should be delivered, if not before the deadline due date. I believe in professionalism, for without that your word is meaningless. I believe in being judged on my actions and as such act as a partner with my clients and treat their needs and wants as if they were my own.
Richard came into our studios and was handed a script we were having a difficult time making the client happy with. We made some changes and then had Richard record the script. His professionalism in understanding the tone needed for the script, (it was an elderly care center), and the passion for the targeted audience, came across immediately, thus the reason we only needed to do two takes for a great read, and a very satisfied client.94.1 The Voice KBXL

During the many changes that need to be made in the process of producing a Documentary can be daunting to say the least, but not having to worry about the Voice-Over files being delivered, was not one of them. Richard always sent quality work, that fit the time line needed, when it was promised. I can't say enough about how great it is working with Richard on this project. I definitely would recommend Richard to others. They won't be disappointed with his professionalism and pleasant positive attitude.Joseph Barnhart Productions

Trying to get a new IVR message set up for a client is always a challenge, especially when they are constantly wanting to change the message needing to be recorded, then wanting a quick turnaround on those changes. Richard was a pleasure to work with as he handled the nearly daily re-recording without a fuss and understood our client’s quick time line and always delivered the quality files ahead of schedule, to a satisfied client. Doing what was needed in a positive manner makes Richard one of our go to IVR Voice-Over artist.VI Productions

Richard did some on camera work for us, and we had to make some changes that eventually came down to giving Richard the scenario we were looking for and letting him ad-lib in his own words, yet keeping the content we wanted in the scene. It was nice it happened in only one take as well. Richard was fun to work with yet he was always a professional in the work provided.Sykes Enterprises
