"Neutral, deep, believable, mature"
Tony Hertz

I’m Anglo/American, born in England, raised in the U.S. with a neutral accent that can be pushed to either side of the Atlantic.
In the studio, my aim is not simply to be a voice, but rather a believable character who delivers a message that's authentic, convincing and human.
Been working at it for many years and believe it's what you'll hear in my demos.
I live in the Philippines, which is 6/7 hours ahead of Europe and 12/13 hours ahead of New York. More often than not the time difference is an advantage, hardly ever an issue.
I have a professional home recording set up and happy to take direction via Zoom, Skype, whatever.

 Formation

I was a copywriter/director before starting to voice, and I trained by directing hundreds of gifted voice actors over many years in Washington, New York, London, Tokyo, Sydney, Brussels, Manila.
I watched and listened to how they worked, how they became characters.
Learned about pacing, rhythm, inflection, breathing and accents.
The importance of listening.
I attended rehearsals, and recordings of radio plays, still do.
And gradually, I became good at it, and earned their respect.
