Glenn's original voice is British English (UK) can be used as the guy next door type of voice as well as the professional man at the office or the sound of the documentary voice over. Character cartoon style voices available if required.

Born in the UK, 30 years of his life where spent in Nottingham he has travelled for 3 months around East Africa, mainly Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Malawi, later he travelled to New Zealand for a 6 month holiday. Both long holidays were for the purpose of seeing a different side of life and to experience the different cultures, lifestyles and of course maybe a beer or two. Some time was also spent in the US, a much shorter holiday but at least still time to experience a little bit of the culture. These stints outside the country have changed my voice to be a little more upbeat than the average British sound but I can drop back in to the true British accent in a heartbeat.

Glenn has tried his hand at some character voices, from laid-back, fun, bubbly to irrational, deep, booming, sadistic and completely downright crazy. Oh! and robotic voices too! Dr Who alien world robot fanzine film. A versatile voice for all types of media.

If you require a crisp, honest, authentic/believable and truthful real life voice to use on your advert, promo, narration job, documentary or other voice over project he can be your man for the job.

Trust him - He can make it happen!

My Voice Experience

Glenn has been voicing since 2011. Past jobs were for an online insurance company, a food website (almost like a scene from a series), some private quiz question sessions used offline, as well as voice overs for a massage chair manufacturer's recorded telephone answering system and a robot for use in a DR WHO fanzine amongst others.

His voice is very marketable being British English, also having the guy next door authentic and believable sound is a great plus and he also has good timing which is nearly as important as the voice over itself.

My Training

Most of his training has been self trained with help online from various hints and tips from professional voice over artists and websites along the way.

He will take vocal training if the need arises in the future because even if you are good at what you do, you still can always benefit from some training to keep you at the top of your game. Voice training is especially helpful for people who have a need to perfect a certain style of voice, the kind of voices that do not resemble his own true voice, accent and style.

Additional Skills

Glenn used to work on the BT 192 directory enquiries telephone lines as well as an Internet Support and Desktop Support line. Any voice over work in the telephone IVR work would be great since he has had much experience on the phones and in communication in general.

He also has a lot of IT experience and worked at the BBC for three years via a contracting company in the BBC New Media department. If there are ever any computer related difficulties whilst working on a job he will be able to comfortably get himself out of it and cure the problem and therefore deliver your jobs on time as was specified. Also perfect for that tech savvy voice over.

He didn't start out from a young age in the voicing industry but "Who does?" He is willing to try his hand at any voicing job and believes that most people don't fully know what they want until they hear it. Glenn says, "It's never an open and shut case during the auditioning phase of a project for voice over work. Sometimes the agents/producers have different ideas about what they want but hearing your voice can sometimes sway it your way even if there was no intention to have your style of voice in the first instance."
