"In this business, styles come and go like fads. You really have to keep you ears open. There are still guys impersonating Don LaFontaine and working full time doing trailers. Now, everyone wants either Morgan Freeman or Morgan Freeman. In my humble opinion, they all fall short of my all-time VO hero, Paul Frees. Maybe in the future, guys will be impersonating the 'Kovar Sound'. I hope not. Because years ago, when I worked briefly with Mr. LaFontaine, he said, 'Kid, you have a great voice. You can do it. Just be yourself.', and this remains my philosophy today. Create. Don't Imitate. Thanks Don!"
