THANK YOU for considering me for your voice-over needs!

I just wanted to thank you for your excellent audio description. It is perfect and adds a lot to the appreciation of the work.

You're SO good at this! You should read audio books ...
(AD script and voicing for Orange County NC Uproar Festival, July 2023)
Note: I AM writing and voicing AD for children's books!

This is wonderful! I listened to both tracks and they sounds great.
