I can provide cutting, pitch change, dynamic compression/volume equalizing, background noise reduction, and clip positioning/editing.

My turn around time is usually within 24 hours or less for a standard 60 second commercial or small character. I'm also available for 30-45 minutes skype or phone patch sessions for normal length projects. I am flexible with my turn around time or live sessions for any projects that require more time due to the size or complexity of the project.
