"Friendly, assured, trustworthy and authoratitive, great RP"
John Grayson

My voice has been described as being friendly, assured, trustworthy and authoratitive, clear, expressive and precise. Charismatic, educated, empathic, Informed, and with natural, reassuring, soothing, sophisticated, versatile, warm. I have excellent UK RP and can also do 'Voice of God' reads

I am comfortable working in all areas of voiceover, but tend to mainly voice commercials, explainer, e-learning and corporate reads, and those with a medical bias, as I also work in the medical field as a simulated patient. However I am equally at ease with other styles of read including narration, or characters found in a drama production or audiobook. Most recently I have appeared in a number of audio dramas.

I can be warm and conversational for narration, upbeat and high energy for commercials; confident and assured for presentations and e-learning; knowledgeable, clear and articulate for all your technical requirements.

Please feel free to contact me to discuss your project where I will be happy to offer a no obligation read. I look forward to hearing from you.

 Formazione

Mainly through working - Even at the age of 6 or 7 I was always asked to do a reading at the school's carol concert, so it has been a natural progression. I started out as an actor and love painting pictures or moods with words, so when I was offered some work narrating on a live theatre show simply because the producer had heard my answerphone message, I grabbed the chance and have never looked back!!

*Member of the 'VoiceOver Network' and 'Gravy for the Brain' both of which offer many training courses and the opportunity to talk directly to industry professionals.
*I currently train with TANYA RICH, a leading voice artist and voice coach in the UK.
*Completed 'Kickstart' a course run by Guy Michaels.

My VO agent is Duygu Basara - London
