Voice Description

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.

My Training

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.
