Testimonials

Rory provided us with a fully professional voiceover service that was exceptional in timeliness and quality. We searched far and wide for medical field specialized voice work and found Rory from the other side of the globe. With his flexibility and great work ethic, time difference and distance were unnoticeable. We warmly recommend Rory and thank him for a job well done!

Dr Sanil Rege - Australia

Rory was our first voice provider, and has provided voice over for Cosmocyte for the last 3 years. We have worked with other voices, and occasionally clients will request a range of voices to choose from, but inevitably my hope is always that they will choose Rory.

Working with him is simple thanks to his use of voice patch software, which lets me listen via phone as he records. Frequently, I can send him a script and and he'll read it correctly in one go. I can always tell that he's looked up proper pronunciations of words, and he nails the inflections necessary to communicate exactly the right message every time. My average voice over session with him is short and sweet, and my clients are always happy with the results. He reliably delivers the final recording files on time and at high quality, and his friendly manner and receptiveness to correction manner makes him a dream to work with. To be honest, I wish I could use him for every voice over project.

Cameron Slayden, M.S. - USA

Rory is an AMAZING VO talent. I have used his soft and hard reads on varied projects throughout the years. His technical setup is super convenient and as an added bonus, he's a nice guy.

Gord McFarlane - Producer - Canada

Among many of Rory's talents and skills is an unfailing positive professional attitude.This, coupled with his significant talent and depth of experience, makes him a terrific person to work with. I wish I had more chances to work with Rory!

Simon Edwards, Resolve Audio - Toronto

I love to hire Rory for his voice talent work. He is always able to go above and beyond expectations. His professional approach to all projects makes me look good in the eyes of my clients. I would recommend him for anyone looking for fast turn around / high quality work.

Kevin Airgid - Airgid Media - Canada

Our productions require a solid understanding for technical terminology, yet Rory makes the material comprehensible, easy to the ears and therefore more effective.

Robert G. Miller, Ph.D. - Toronto

Despite the vast geographical difference, it
was great to be able to be patched in and
take part in the recording process. It's been
not only straight-forward but also a real
pleasure to work with you.

Garry Hart – DCA Design, England

You are easy to work with. I appreciated the opportunity to listen in during your read. I'm most satisfied with the result.

Robert C. Bosack, DDS Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery - USA

Rory's command of medical vocabulary was impressive, even when reading about complex neurophysiology of the central nervous system.
