My Voice Experience

I have been doing impressions since I was a teenager, it was a skill that came natural to me. I have been fine tuning many of my characters over many years and I am now ready to show the world what I can do!

I have a lot of studio experience so I am very comfortable in front of a mic and working with audio technicians and taking direction.

My Training

The Showreel, Victoria, London

Mentored by Jean Paul Orr, one of the most experienced voice over coaches in the UK with around 25 years experience in the industry.

Course I have attended:

Voiceover beginners workshop
Voice protection and breathing workshop
Accents workshop
15 hours of 1-2-1 studio experience with Jean Paul Orr

I Did Drama at Mill Hill School, London

My Studio Equipment

Fully operational studio with editing capabilities:
Rode NT1 mic
Beyerdynamic DT 100 headphones
Logic

Additional Skills

I am very personable and professional. I take direction well while working and can also offer new ideas and create scripts myself as I have done with my character reel.

I am willing to travel and I am very easy to contact and I am experienced dealing with clients.
