"He was a pleasure to work with and a real pro."

Emily Elert "The narrator of The Day We Found the Universe, Erik Synnestvedt, delivers a thoughtful, intelligent reading. His performance reflects a strong understanding of the subject matter — both scientific and character-oriented. His voice, while consistently steady and informed, responds dynamically to subtle changes in tone and pace throughout the narrative."
Marcia Bartusiak, Author of The Day We Found the Universe

"I finally got the opportunity to listen to a sample of The Day We Found the Universe audiobook.  How splendid!  You did a terrific job, and I feel very fortunate to have had someone with your talents record it.  Thank you so much for the time and attention you spent on every word and nuance."

Director, The Big Idea
"Booking you is my guarantee of a fast and productive session. You give us natural, expressive, reads, in few takes. When I have an idea of how a line should sound, you take my direction and nail it. When I've written a mouthful, you help fix it. Perhaps best of all, you take the time to understand what you're reading. All of which is why you've become the voice of our series."
Lisa Laden, Producer
Laden Communications
"Erik has a warm, youthful, voice that speaks well to young audiences both as a narrator and in character roles. He comes into the studio well-prepared and gives a thoughtful, intelligent, read. Erik is serious about his craft and works hard to make clients happy. It is always a pleasure to work with a pro."

“Erik is one of the most versatile and professional talent I have ever worked with and I’ve worked with voice over talent on both coast for over 30 years. I’ve always had great spots when Erik was part of the team. I always look forward to working with Erik again.”
Rich Goldberg, Producer,
Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab
"Erik is a talented and professional actor. From our first telephone contact through completion of filming, he was committed to the production. Punctuality, flexibility, and creativity are Erik's strong points. I was highly impressed with his ability to read and interpret scripts, even when script changes came in at the last moment. His performance was highly believable given the difficult subject matter of diversity issues. We had minimal takes and each take was better than the next. I can foresee hiring Erik again for future productions."
Helen Borten, Producer,
National Public Radio
"Erik has the ability to get inside a character--and is a pleasure to work with!"
William Hanff, Producer/Director, Ralph Graves Productions
"Erik is a true professional who works hard at his craft and at providing everything his clients ask for. As one of our hosts/emcees for the 2004 convention of the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions in Orlando, Fl, Erik's preparation and attention to detail ensured a smooth and successful event. Not only did he perform in front of over 3000 people for that show, he was also then cast as the on-camera host for IAAPA's New Employment Orientation Video. His naturally enthusiastic delivery and positive attitude made the shoot easy and fun. In short, Erik is directable, believable, flexible and comes highly recommended."
