Warm,sincere,classy,neutral,character specialist

Voice Description

I am an extremely versatile British (English) voiceover artist/voice over talent - with a wide range of styles and a wide range of characters. My 'normal' voice is warm and sincere. I have a fairly neutral (RP)accent - although I originated in the West Midlands (Stafford)

However I can make it sound sexy and fun for commercials, professional for presentations, authoritative for corporates, and very very funny for animations! I'm interested in doing commercials, animations, TV shows and movies, corporates, video games, podcasts, on hold messages, voice mail greetings, promos, video and game trailers, songs and radio as well as cartoons, links, audio books, infomercials, live announcements, virtual presenting, e-learning, ELT, training films and continuity stuff...

I can do a variety of accents including Liverpool, Black Country, Cockney, Yorkshire, Lancashire, General American, etc

I love doing comedy characters - the wackier the better (!?!) - and am good at children's voices and babies as well as old ladies!

My Training

My voice over training began when I worked as a production assistant for a sound studio! Each week we produced audio books, web casts, audio for video games, TV animations, Commercials and so forth.
Then I did a course in radio drama and voice overs at a London College, recorded my voice CD and the rest is history.

Before all of the above, however, I had worked for over ten years as a professional actress in TV, film and theatre!

I trained at London Studio Centre and Italia Conti Stage School and I also did an evening course in journalism and a City & Guilds in TV/Video Production at a video college! As well as working as an actress I have worked as a VT Op, Vision Mixer and Editor for various TV companies.

Also I have a degree in Divinity and a Post Graduate Certificate in Education!

My Studio Equipment

Home Studio: MBox2, Protools, AT4040 mic, Reflection filter etc.

Easy access to ISDN (just down the road!)

Additional Skills

English (British) voice over artist.

Extremely versatile. Superb at young character voices...and animated characters with lots of accents....

Also ideal for corporate and commercial reads with a clear voice and concise pronunciation.

As well as doing voice over I have worked in TV as a vision mixer and an editor. This comes in useful when editing my own material.


Also I have written scripts and had one optioned for TV.
