Testimonials

It was my privilege to work with voice-over artist Hakim Dyer a few years ago. His intelligence, professionalism, adaptability and personable demeanor reflect directly in his vocal quality and oral presentation. That deep resonant voice, clarity of diction and expressive range made Hakim the perfect choice for the project. The success of the completed piece was due in no small part to Hakim's participation; he is the man with the golden pipes and I recommend him without hesitation for any project under consideration.
