Testimonials

"We were working on a very quick turn around job and were desperate for a quality VO before sending to our client. David Byrd went above and beyond to help us bring the project to life under insane time restraints, and with limited guidance. He helped make what could have been a stressful situation much easier, and with a professional and caring demeanor. I would recommend David to anyone in need of a high quality and powerful voice over artist. I intend to work with him much more in the future, and look forward to the opportunity."

David was so great to work with, and international distance didn't cause even the slightest issue. He was extremely fast, delivered the lines exactly as we'd described, and was incredibly friendly and enthusiastic about the project. Definitely wouldn't have any reservations asking him to bring more characters to life for us in future games! Thanks so much David!
