I have had the pleasure of working with Michael Villani for the past 30+ years. He has lent his voice and his on-camera presence to many of our productions. His talent has helped us elevate the quality of our programs. He has provided many narrations, as well as being an on camera host for a number of video productions. He has also hosted several live, high profile events for the Orange County Department of Education. The utmost professional!

Michael Villani is one of the most professional people I have ever worked with. Not only is he a superb voiceover talent, he makes script recommendations that are right on. He also does a great job with recording. He has been a huge help to me in my videos and radio spots.

Michael Villani is simply my go-to guy for voice over work. Able to combine authority, warmth, and expertise together with a great voice. And a real pleasure to work with. His high levels of integrity and expert narration have continually given me great results with my clients. My first choice every time.

Dear Sirs: I am writing to give you my highest recommendation for Mr. Michael Villani. I have worked alongside Mr. Villani on two occasions, the Olympic Games in Athens in 2004, and again in Beijing in 2008. Mr. Villani is extremely professional not only in his preparation but also in the execution of his duty as English venue announcer for Indoor Volleyball. His clear precise pronunciation and strong voice have brought a sense of excitement to the sport of which he is so clearly interested in. His versatility to be able to help out in his capacity as announcer, at other venues, should the need arise, is highly valued. His friendly demeanor and willingness to help others is the kind of team player attitude that is so refreshing to be associated with. Mr. Villani would be a tremendous asset to the sport of Indoor Volleyball and the Games of the 2012 Olympiad.

I have worked with Mike on hundreds of promos and he is the consumate professional. He sets high standards for himself and I really appreciate that. He's a gem!.
Jeffrey Lee Hollis - Writer/Producer/Editor
I have been involved in several projects where Mike Villani has been called upon to use his skills as an emcee, voice-over artist or on-camera talent. He is always a critical element in any event he is involved in because of his consummate professionalism. Mike's poise and energy make him the perfect Master of Ceremonies. His recognizable voice and polished presence add a touch of class and prestige for those in attendance. He does not disappoint!
William M. Habermehl - Orange County Superintendent of Schools
I have had the pleasure of working with Mike Villani at two Olympic Games, and I know that he has done others, most recently the Winter Olympics in Canada. I know him from the Volleyball Competitions at Athens and Beijing. At a professional level, he has always matched the exacting requirements of the sports he has "voiced." Mr Villani's attention to detail prior to each day's event has always been exemplary. At a personal level he has always worked well with local announcers, and with the officials of the Federation Internationale de Volleyball, being friendly and polite. He has a ready smile and I hope he does not mind me saying that he has a great speaking voice. He is a complete professional, and I would have no hesitation is supporting his candidacy for the role of announcer in the volleyball event at Earl's Court during the Olympic Games of London 2012.
