Rod was great to work with. He turned around the job very quickly and during my edit session with the client he was able to re-cut everything with new directions also very quickly....while the client was waiting in the booth with me! I am so glad he was there to make the quick submissions! Thanks Rod!

Our client came back with revisions to their boat tour script a couple weeks after Rod had initially done the job. There were so many changes that we decided to redo the whole thing, and Rod delivered!

Rod does great work! We were looking for someone to inject some color and personality into the somewhat dry subject matter of our boat tour, and he was the guy. He was especially helpful working around our team's tight schedule. We'd love to work with him again!

Rod did an incredible job for us! Of the 87 auditions that I listened to, Rod had the most professionally recorded and quality read. His enthusiasm was also unparalleled by any of the others that I spoke with. Rod provided an amazing service, and had everyone that listened to our videos immediately asking, "Who did the voice-over, it's great!"

I would re-hire Rod in a heartbeat and I highly recommend his services.
