Folksy midwest delivery. Character voices.

Voice Description

I run a full time home studio and can give clients full personal attention 24/7.
Contact me direct at jlipski46@verizon.net or phone 805-588-4100. 99.9% of voice jobs can be delivered the same day. Full production spots can be turned around in 24 hours. Most audio recuts can be delivered within hours of notification.
I will include recuts of the original copy to correct pronunciation, emphasis or minor edits at no extra charge. If for any technical reason you would like another 'take' I am more than happy to oblige. Your complete satisfaction is what I strive to do.
Delivery styles:
