James is really dedicated and has a great personal approach to clients. It was fun to hear personal greetings in the beginning of each recording. That made me feel appreciated and, well, glad :) Overall a great collaboration. Totally recommendable.

Solar Animation Studios

Excellent contractor, very friendly and always strives to deliver the best quality work.

Nathanson Inc. Marketing

James has done an outstanding job for me. It was a difficult narration and required lots of editing. His pronunciation of different words from different languages is excellent. I highly recommend James.

James clearly understood the project, and presented a quality offer with a customised demo file.

Having hired James, he delivered on time, with quality that surpassed our expectations.

Have no hesitation in recommending James for Voice work.
