I have used Ricky's voiceover services exclusively to deliver our revolutionary e-learning package for doctors. His warm and familiar style has been a key factor in our company's success. His rapid turn around time and willingness to go that extra mile has taken a huge headache away from me. I know that he will always produce a quality product.
