"At Digital Brew, we create a lot of animated videos for our clients and we always need voice talent for those projects. Our number one go to guy for all of our projects is Dawson. Dawson's voice not only sounds great, but what Dawson really brings to the table that other artists lack is his ability to breathe more life into the videos we produce through his delivery and energy. He's also wonderful to work with on the business side. He always delivers quickly and has a can do attitude. Without a doubt, he kicks our projects up to the next level and no one does it like Dawson.Digital Brew
In 2016 won two Emmy's in the Commercial Category for two of our animated videos. Dawson's contribution to those videos was a critical piece of those wins. Thank you Dawson! Looking forward to many more years of working together!"
