Service Description

Preparation and discipline are hallmarks of Robert's voice performances. Before stepping to the mic, he analyzes your copy by considering over a dozen different aspects, each of which informs his read in a specific way. This pre-performance preparation routine enables Robert to gain an intuitive understanding which is reflected in his distinctive read. Robert turns projects quickly, delivering files via e-mail, FTP or any other method you choose.

Robert can perform a wide range of accents and regional dialects. For some projects, he has even synthesized a couple of accents into a unique new creation. For a historical documentary project, Robert performed the voices of Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, and Woodrow Wilson.

In session, Robert is professional, prepared, and personable. He is a business owner himself and accustomed to situations when stakes are high, time is short, and results are required. Robert guarantees your satisfaction.
