The highlghts for me are bringing life to words on a page and doing something I love.

I have been a voice over artist for 4 years and, in that time, I have undertaken work for TV, internet and radio ads in the UK and the USA, plus I have voiced corporate videos, educational presentations, in flight announcements, telephone prompts/messages and training courses for companies around the world.

A personal highlight was narrating a series of wildlife documentaries for Smithsonian TV in America.

 Training

I had 5 years of elocution lessons when I was at school (13-18) which gave a great foundation.
I have also undertaken training with Steve Hudson (Voice Technique), Gary Terzza (Voice Over Masterclass) and Rod Lucas (Voice Over Training Classes)

 Experience

Many of the companies have required a non-disclosure agreement but I have worked for a major high street UK bank, one of the largest UK supermarkets and a major English football club.

I have been fortunate to voice adverts for UK and American radio, TV and internet involving companies as diverse as a veterinary practice, an American University, a car dealership and a Dutch DJ!

As mentioned above, a personal highlight was narrating a series of wildlife documentaries for Smithsonian TV in America. Another achievement that I was proud of was voicing a number of UNHCR appeals, again for American TV.

I have experience of voicing in my own studio, being directed via Skype and attending a client's studio.

 Specials

I can deliver edited and finished voice tracks
