Producer Testimonial:

It was an honor to hire Jeffery as my sound designer. As a disabled producer, it is paramount that my designers and technicians understand the needs of my actors, especially my disabled actors. Jeff began to build my trust from the moment I interviewed him. He was confident, but so kind. He instantly put me at ease, assuring me that he would support and take care of my actors and his production colleagues to the level I expect. He delivered on that promise in spades. Jeffery is nothing but a joy to work with in every way. We were working in a large rehearsal space with poor acoustics. Jeffery's design was absolutely breathtaking. He somehow managed to amplify my actors just enough, but not too much. It was just perfection. I received so many compliments about the sound post show. I am counting down the days until I get to work with Jeffery again!
