"Finding a good audio op is not that easy. You want someone who is on their game, but able to be a quiet presence. You want someone flexible and low maintenance, but willing to speak up if things aren't right...and Wiley is these things and much more! After finding Wiley through a personal referral, I booked him for an important multi day shoot. We threw some last minute stuff at him, more than a few curveballs, and he handled it all with aplomb and professionalism. I would highly recommend him for any shoot big or small, he's a pro and great to work with." - joelforrest
