Voice Description

If voices were fonts, welcome to the sound of Gill Sans: Clear, clean, stylish and with a definite European elan. I can be boldface for headlines, instructions and imperatives. Italic, for relaxed and chatty asides. Book for longer reads, or Light for conspiratorial asides and inside information.

I can mutate into New Johnston, the Received Pronunciation of the BBC with its slightly starchier feel, but also relax into a cornucopia of characters.

As befits a sans serif voice, it works well for technical reads - especially pharmaceutical.

My Voice Experience

Over the last two decades, I have been creating corporate video, high end presentations, interactive multimedia and delivering educational material for international companies such as Unilever, IBM, Cisco, Toshiba, Astra Zeneca, GSK, Orange, Syngenta, 3, and the list goes on.

All this from a little office in the middle of a sunny garden in rural Berkshire surrounded by chickens, vegetables and family - the idyll of 'men in sheds'. Albeit, in this case, a very comfortable shed full of hi-tech wizardry.

As time went by, so my 'stand-in' voice-overs became the final product, and I had more and more fun whilst recording them. So now I'm opening the doors to anyone who requires a clean, detailed and sans-serif voice that's well used to extremely technical language and all the medical terms...

... or any of the multitude of voices I've invented for my son's bedtime stories, for that matter.

Additional Skills

I've come to voice-over work a little late and through a tortuous route. But glad to be here.

So many times, I've needed a voiceover and dumped my own rendition in the edit in order to replace it later. So many times, the client was comfortable with it - just needed a bit of a scrub-up. Soon, it was all part of the service.

I am still a professional editor, specialising in short form corporate and commercial work, but the trouble is I enjoy VO work too much to ignore.

Right now, I can give you a good, tight technical read and work my way through the driest of material because that's what I've needed and what I've worked with for the last decade. Having upped the technical quality of my voiceovers, I'm going to expand the range and the variety of characterizations I can create for you.
