Membre depuis 3 années
"Bilingual British / French VO actor, narrator, singer & composer"

I am a full-time bilingual (English and French) voice-artist, audio-book narrator, singer, composer and producer, working between London and Paris.

I specialize in corporate, commercial, educational and cinematic voice-overs, whilst pursuing a well established career in fiction audio-book narration.

I take pride in offering high quality original music and sound effects to further enhance your adverts, narratives or trailers.

My voice is often described as warm, engaging, trustworthy, friendly and conversational. My natural British Received Pronunciation (sometimes referred to as Oxford or BBC English) can morph seamlessly to French (my mother tongue) or adapt convincingly to other regional accents from around the UK and beyond.

A voice is unique and as such my only claim is that I sound exactly like ... myself ! However, and often to my surprise, I have landed jobs with clients who were specifically searching for a celebrity sound-alike among the following : Peter Sellers, Jim Dale, David Attenborough, Stephen Fry, Spike Milligan, Jon Pertwee, Anthony Hopkins, Michael Caine, Rik Mayall, Gerard Hoffnung, Peter Cook, Dudley Moore, Sting, George Michael, David Bowie.

 Formation

Initially self-taught, I developed my vocal skills producing corporate voice overs at Engie ( for 5 years as a full-time employee for its internal communications department in Paris), further completed by attending numerous VO classes and receiving personal coaching taken between 2015 and 2017.
Furthermore I am a fully qualified sound engineer and a certified adobe creative cloud advanced user
