"When I hire a sound guy, I want someone who is technically proficient and creative, who can come up with creative solutions on the fly on location when problems arise. Often I don't have the luxury of doing ADR for my exterior scenes. Rob's exterior sound capture is always usable! His creativity in a pinch is always impressive. And for me, what I find as important as being a good "sound guy," is being a good guy. I can say without a doubt that Rob is one of the kindest, sweetest people I have ever met in the industry. I find this essential on set, to have reliable, talented, yet NICE people. It only makes the actors more comfortable when someone like Rob is in their delicate working space. I recommend Rob highly."
Shaun Peterson, director of Disney's "Rule the Mix"
"Rob did a terrific job on our film. Our schedule was ambitious and our days were long but Rob stayed calm under pressure, was always meticulous and was a pleasure to have on set. The production audio sounds great. I recommend him highly."
Claudia Myers, writer/director of feature film "Fort Bliss"
"It's such a pleasure working with someone who's professionalism not only allows the shoot to run as smoothly as possible but who yields results beyond what I asked for. Rob is that type of sound mixer. I've had the opportunity to work with many mixers on set and Rob will remain my first choice. His dedication to his craft is exactly what I needed. To not have to worry about such an important aspect of production is not to be underestimated. I look forward to working with Rob again."
Will Norton, writer/director of feature film "False Colors"
