Kind Words

Through hundreds of hours of VO and PCAP sessions, Sarah has been a dream to work with. Her understanding of both the medium and the process make her an indispensable collaborator both in and out of the booth. Her passion for her work is contagious, the professionalism she brings to set makes my job as Dialog Supervisor a walk in the park. I know I’m going to get everything I need and more when I book her and the day is going to be as fun as it is productive.

When I work with Sarah I know that I am getting much more than a great voice, I’m getting someone who understands on a deep level what makes game dialog impactful and emotional. Sarah is already one of the great voice actors for games and I know that I will be calling her for every project I work on.”
