"Neutral British male **Broadcast quality studio**"

TRUSTED, CLEAR, WARM & FRIENDLY - I'm an award-winning British voice over artist, with over 30 years of experience with International brands such as Emirates, Google, HSBC, EE, Wix, Tomy, Mattel, Bosch, GSK, Landrover, and Unilever. My voice is classed as British English, trusted, clear, warm and friendly, with a neutral accent. I'm a member of British Equity.

In 2018 I won the prestigious One Voice Award for Best Overall Performance in Telephony/IVR and I'm nominated for the same award this year as well as Male Voiceover Artist of the Year 2020. I record a lot of e-learning for clients such as the British National Health Service and Vodafone, and work with e-learning companies across the world. Two documentaries I voiced recently have won international awards. As well as corporate and commercial work - I voice many characters for games and animations, including an award-winning Santa Claus (see celebrity sound alike demo) and the 1950's BBC/Pathe News vintage newsreader voice.

For many years I was also the the network voice of British Forces TV, Challenge TV in the UK and the presenter of "Entertainment Now!" for Associated Press TV around the world.

I can usually turn around audio from my own studio within 24 hours... I live in Oxfordshire in the UK with easy access to London, Birmingham, Oxford and Reading studios, I'm always happy to do custom samples of script. I can also record via Source Connect, ISDN through ipDTL, CleanFeed, Skype or Zoom if you need a directed session.


My mother was an elocution and drama teacher - so I learnt very early... but I do have a degree in Media Production from Bournemouth University (1991).
