Deep, serious, dead pan, Stephen Fry
The voice is deep, dark and warm with a timbre reminiscent of Stephen Fry. Ranging from intimate and sexy to loud and commanding the voice is particularly well suited to extended narration but is also ideally cast to deliver dead-pan humour and a particularly English irony.

My Voice Experience
An experienced academic I haved a long track record and very wide experience as a public speaker. This has led over the years to many people commenting on the quality of my voice and for requests to use it in a voluntary capacity. In the last couple of years this work has included podcasts, radio jingles and a documentary film narration.
Certificate of Qualification in Social Work (CQSW)
Master of Education (MEd)
National Teaching Fellow (NTF)
No formal training in voice over work but I have attended a workshop on voice projection to assist me in supporting other lecturers to use their voices to best effect.

I have access to expert technical advice and support.
In an earlier life I used to sell advertising and considerd a career in copywriting.
As a Probation officer for many years I have experienced and have some understanding about a wide range of social issues.
As an educator and educationalist I have a good knowledge of how people communicate, understand and learn.
Motivating others has been a common thread in my work for many years.
As an academic with eclectic interests I am widely read and culturally engaged.
As the father of five children I have learned to use the tone of my voice in a very wide range of ways (from loving, caring and supportive through to angry, indignant, frustrated and punitive!)
I'm a good and quick reader of all sorts of texts.
