All rates are custom quoted and based on the GVAA rate guide. I provide a discount for bulk work. Please contact me to discuss your project details (length of recording, where the VO will be used [broadcast or nonbroadcast], length of use, and type of file needed [raw or mastered]) and I’ll gladly provide a quote for you within one business day.

Split and named files: $1 per file

Adding music/sound effects: $15 per music bed; $15 per track (sound effects may be layered)

Copyediting/proofing your script

  1. Ensuring grammatical correctness: $12 per 150 words
  2. Editing the copy: $30 per 150 words


Time-/audio-synched: $50 per 1 to 3 minutes of audio

Same-day turnaround: $50 for 12- to 14-hour delivery

Live-directed session fee: $50/30 minutes; this fee is charged upfront based on estimated studio time and subtracted from the final invoice amount


Changes to the script will incur an additional fee depending on the extent and/or scope of the changes. Specifically,

  • Minor revisions (up to 30% of the script) are half the quoted fee
  • Major revisions (over 30% of the script) are the original quoted fee

Note that for self-directed audio, if some lines require a revision in the performance (the tone or the pacing, for example), then I offer one round of these types of revisions for free. The second round will be charged as either minor or major, as per the extent of the revisions.


What is it like to work with me? For the workflow, check out my “How I provide broadcast-quality audio” section on the home page. I’m a creative professional like you, I enjoy collaborating, and I know how to stick to deadlines. I’ll ask you some questions about your project upfront so we’re on the same page regarding performance, and then I’ll get to work on your audio.

Do I charge more for directed sessions? No, but there is a session fee (see RATES), which is paid upfront and subtracted from the final invoice.

Do I do bulk-rate work: Yes. In certain instances, this is an excellent way to process a project, such as when you need a consistent voice/delivery across multiple subprojects.

How do I invoice? I use Wave to send invoices.

How do I do live sessions? I can do live sessions via Skype, Zoom, or Source Connect.

How do I accept payment? I accept bank transfer (I’ll send you a link), PayPal, check, or payment through Wave.

How do I deliver files? I send files in WAV, AIFF, or mp3. Let me know whether you need another file format.

What are “exceptions” or “exclusions”? These are specified in a contract and pertain to usage (e.g., regions or specific forms of media). So, for example, the contract may specify that the audio can be used “radio broadcast in the Los Angeles area (excludes all other regions) and excludes social media and web.” In this example, if the audio is used outside of the Los Angeles area and on social media or the web, then further compensation will be negotiated.
