Unique Transportation Voiceovers

Have a product or service you're trying to draw attention to? How about an upcoming event? Why not use sound to tell people what's happening. Here's a recording I did for ITS-NY. In a little over a minute you get a rundown of what's ahead.

How might you use such a recording? Well, you could put a link on your website, include it in an email blast or even connect to it through a QR code in printed materials. The link could remain the same with new updates provided on a regular basis. In some situations, I'd be willing to do a similar recording for free! Please contact me at to learn more.
