Dom Nero, Creative Services Director HOT 97

JD is as passionate as anyone I’ve ever encountered when it comes to Audio Imaging and Sound Design and he’s taken that passion and poured it into creating sound design. It’s a solid, modern sound that gives us that powerful image we look for.

Timothy.L.Thomas, Production/Imaging Director ESPN

I even put these effects before I start my sentences when talking to my content director! JD is that powerful!!!

Andrew Smooth, Imaging Director - POWER 106 - Los Angeles

His sound design isn’t as painful to listen to as I thought it would be. JD is though. But I try not to listen to him ever.

Kyle Taylor, Creative Director - INDIE 88 - Toronto, Canada

An imaging package any CHR producer should put on their wish list. Modern, contemporary beds and sfx with edge. JD Cuts!

Ron Tarrant Sound Design / Imaging Producer, Reel World & Howard Stern

JD understands what I want my production to sound like better than I do.  I regularly send him half thought out ideas and what he sends back to me is better than I could have imagined.  He also can send back high quality production in rushed situations which is extremely important in the world of sports”

Jon Goulet - Program Director, VSIN - The Sports Betting Network / Draft Kings

The imaging work JD produces is second to none, which is why I’ve recommended him to my clients for years. He understands how to make things feel and sound big, keep the content topical, and add the right creative touch to help the production resonate with the audience. More importantly, he’s easy to work with, and looks for ways to say yes and help his partners, rather than complicate the process. Brands that work with JD give themselves an edge over the others who don’t.

Jason Barrett President, Barrett Sports Media

I’ve known JD for years. His attention to detail makes his imaging blaze. The sound design elements F***ING quake your DAW. I love it!

George W. Robinson Voice Talent/Producer, grvoices.com

JD is one of the preeminent imaging production guys in North America. WEEI counts on him for his innovative, fresh, and creative imaging on a daily basis and he never disappoints. His passion for the business and work ethic are unmatched. No question, Dove is one of the best in the business and we’re proud to have him at WEEI.

Joe Zarbano - Former Program Director, WEEI Sports Network / Red Sox Network

JD is my new secret “go to” for contemporary elements that sound like today’s music. Lots of inspiration in this one! I’m going to make it my bitch!!!

John Kerber Creative Director, SiriusXM Music Channels

JD is among the very elite in the business!  We rely on JD to make our brand sound big time and on point.  What I like best about JD is he learns the target sound quickly and then mixes that with his own creativity.  His creativity, turnaround time, ability to make any voice talent sound better, and Production are unmatched!

Paul Mason - Operations Manager, Titans Radio/104-5 The Zone

After we lost an in-house production director, JD stepped right in and helped elevate our new brand (SKOR North) to new heights with his creative, powerful and upbeat imaging. We regularly use JDs imaging work across radio, podcast and even YouTube. He is an incredibly valuable member of our team, and we couldn’t be more thrilled with his work (and charming, intoxicating personality).

Phil Mackey - Director of Digital, Hubbard Radio

Imaging is like pizza, and I take my pizza to the next level by dunking it in ranch dressing. JD is ranch dressing for your imaging pizza.
