Your project is my top priority and I will only take a job if I can perform to highest standards. I offer my voiceover artistry and editing; I do not offer music or special effects.
I am a great listener and will provide you with several takes to chose from. Does your script require fine-tuning? Please don't hesitate to ask. My talents and experience of over 20 years as an producer, director and teacher are at your disposal and insure that my skill set will fit your project needs with amazing results.
