My Voice Experience

"R. Michael really has the voice...and it's a very adaptable one. I recently returned with some powerful documentary footage from Tanzania and Ralph read my script with the required care and compassion. I then turned to him to voice our topical opens for the Buffalo Sabres broadcasts on MSG...and his energy and punch is exactly what we were looking for. We are thrilled to be working with R. Michael...who REALLY Has The Voice!"
- Matt Gould, Executive Producer, Buffalo Sabres

"R. Michael has produced consistently excellent work for us. Accuracy is crucial to our type of work and he has approached that very seriously. Even with very tight deadlines, he always comes through for us on time. Thanks, R. Michael!"
- Dawn Smeja, Director of Advanced Development,
The Edcomm Group

"Working with R. Michael is a very smooth process. His work product does not vary - it is consistently high. He is responsive, communicates well, and understands and accommodates the difficult time constraints we are bound to. I appreciate the dedication and commitment he brings to voiceover projects."
- Francesca Cerrato, Designer at Legal Media, Inc.

"R. Michael was the first voiceover artist our company worked with, and he made the first-time experience seamless and smooth. His speediness and attention to detail was top notch! His vocal range was impressive, and most importantly he was a true professional, a genuinely nice person, and took our project seriously. We’ll definitely be using his services again soon. There’s no denying that R. Michael "HAS The Voice"!

- Greg Krantz, CEO, Professional Voice Greetings, LLC

“R. Michael delivers demanding, announcer-driven reads, not only with punchy, natural compression, but also manages, somehow, to deliver interpretation, turning what others mangle as a hard-sell into a meaningful read - with authority and urgency that really gets the message across. He can also deliver material that requires finesse and attitude. That's the Hass mix:
consistency, versatility and quality. And that's why he's on our
"A" list and clients love him!”

The !dea Factory, Edmonton, AB
