Warm, deep to alto, friendly, smooth for projects requiring an intimate voice. Professional, crisp, knowledgeable, matter-of-fact for technical, industrial, or business presentations that need to convey confidence and security. Sarcastic or fun, for when you need something that is... uh... sarcastic or... fun. Conversational, guy next door. I can also help you select royalty-free music for a music bed.

As a two-time Emmy award winning producer with 15 years experience in video production, I've listened to my share of VO. One of the pleasures in working with Dirk is time after time, project after project, he cranks out fantastic work. He's got a great voice, and he knows how to use it.RocketSpots
I've used him on multiple projects for multiple clients, and each time he was able to hone his sound to just what we needed. Dirk's ability to change his delivery, style, inflection and his ability to take direction like a real pro makes him an asset to the many projects we've used him on.
