"Rick has been a true professional in the time that I've worked with him. I've worked with him on a number of projects, and have been very pleased with what I have received. His voice sounds great on everything that I've used. Above and beyond that, he has been easy to work with. He is personable, fun to talk to, and very courteous. Rick's turn-around time on my work has been unbelievable, able to get me my voice-overs in a VERY timely fashion. I would recommend Rick Sparks to anyone needing voice over work." -- Jason Hudy, Magician
