"Young and resonant voice with a range of characters inside"

I pride myself on having a very clear speaking voice, with well rounded consonants and solid vowel sounds. Added to this is an unusually strong and audible chest resonance which I developed during my training that gives my voice a persistent warmth and gravitas, ideal for audiobook readings and announcements. In addition I have a flexible range both ascending and descending which, coupled with a natural flair for accents and inhabiting different vocal zones in my body, allows me to create a variety of character voices that are sustainable and suitable for all types of animated media.

 Formation

I was trained on the BA Acting course at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire from 2013 to 2016. Whilst there, I trained extensively in and exceled at the use and development of the Voice from practitioners who regularly coach at the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford-upon-Avon. I also had the honor of representing the school at the 2016 Carleton Hobb's Award, a competition run by the country's leading drama schools and the BBC, from which I received high praise from the panel for my work. Since leaving I have continued to learn the VO trade by attending regular webinars held by Gravy for the Brain Ltd, a Voice-over company, and workshops on all aspects of the industry with the Actors Guild.
