Having spent part of my life in London, England and the other in North America, I have the ability to swing from British to North American or mid-Atlantic when needed. I have the versatility and range to capture European, as well as the regional dialects of the UK. I am adept at straight reads, humorous and dramatic narration, as well as a range of character voice deliveries.

I have over twenty years as a voiceover artist, this has ranged from corporate to business work, such as: internal and explainer videos to training and education projects. My voice has been described as professional in tone, authoritative, friendly, conversation and believable.

On the other end of the scale are commercial, narration, character and gaming projects. This is where I can express my versatility in range, from bold British wizards and kings to the brooding, creepy and mischievous nature of a ghoul or goblin. I am constantly searching for new voice characters, and with each script I encounter, I take the time to think through how this read can be unique and fresh.

 Training

I have had a twenty year relationship with Clare Burt Recording Studio Ltd. in Toronto. During this time, I've worked with producers / directors in recording sessions and workshop scenarios, gaining the necessary insight and experience to better my craft.

 Specials

I pride myself on being versatile, directable and easy to work with, as well as being able to deliver high quality voiceovers with a fast turnaround.

I work out of a work home studio, but also have access to an offsite studio location that allows for phone patch, Skype, ISDN or Source Connect.

I also offer copywriting if edits are needed, in order to help scripts flow or be more colloquial. Working in ADOBE Audition I have the ability to do post production, such as adding music or effects when needed.

At the end of the day, it's important to me that my client's product is the very best that it can be.
