"A versatile neutral English voice with rich authoritative bass"

I have spent over ten years working in broadcast media, recording and producing voiceovers for television documentaries and audiobooks. I have extensive experience on 'both sides of the mic', having scripted and produced other voice actors, and recorded a wide range of voiceovers myself. My natural voice is deep, neutral English, but I can offer a wide range of pitches and tones - from smooth radio, to grim detective, to kooky cartoon characters. I have my own industry standard recording facilities at home, and am meticulous in my attention to detail, both recording and editing. I'm easy-going and enjoy collaborative work with others. Communication is key to the success of every project; if there's any doubt about a client's wishes, I'll check and double check to ensure that you get the ideal recording.
