Voice Description

I would describe my voice as rather “BBC Radio 4” by which I mean it is quite deep and pleasant and has authority. I believe I normally sound as if I understand what I am saying rather than just reading the words.

My Voice Experience

I came into doing voice over work by default. I was a science producer at the BBC and normally recorded a guide track to my programmes before getting a professional in to “do it properly”. The trouble was people kept preferring the guide track to the professional version. Eventually I succumbed and started doing it professionally myself. I know I have been lucky enough to be given a good speaking voice but I think where I really win is that my production background means I tend to be good at understanding tricky scripts and one can hear that comprehension in my voice. My voice has been used on programmes for many pharmaceutical companies including GlaxoSmithKline, Astra and Novartis, often having to confidently say difficult medical terms. I have also voiced programmes for BUPA, the South Derby NHS Trust and many others.

My Training

I have a physics degree (honours) from The Imperial College of Science and Technology (London University) so am a BSc ARCS. At the BBC I started out as an editor (twice BAFTA nominated) then moved to production. I spent many years directing voice over artists before starting to do it myself so I have a good feel for what the producer wants to hear.

My Studio Equipment

I have a small sound studio equipped with Beyerdynamic microphones. I record directly to computer and have a well-equipped control room. Depending on requirements I can post-produce using Soundbooth or Audacity. If syncing to pictures is required I also have (and often use) both Avid and Premiere Pro.

Additional Skills

I am a regular theatre goer. Being a member of BAFTA I vote in the annual British Academy Awards. As stated earlier I can write, produce and direct but am very happy being directed by others if required.
