Voice Description

The definitive 30something UK Male Voiceover. Warm and tonally rich, but with a fresh, young edge. A versatile style that's equally at home in commercials, corporate productions and even the bite and growl of contemporary radio station imaging. Styles include cool and laid-back, mature and intelligent, approachable and friendly, with attitude and edge, and quirky and energetic!

My Voice Experience

With a background in radio creative and production, I voiced my first radio commercial back in 1998. But it's predominantly since 2009 that I have stepped up my voiceover work; becoming station voice of South Coast UK regional radio station Wave 105 in 2009. This lead to further station voice work with UTV Radio network and Sunshine Radio. From there a rapid growth in to voicing radio and TV commercials, online video, on-hold and IVR.

I have voiced multi-station radio campaigns for Netflix, JYSK furniture stores (local TV campaigns too), the University of Lincoln and the University of Bolton; numerous radio commercials and promos for major groups including Global Radio, UTV, Bauer Media and UKRD; online product videos for Collinson Latitude, Skills For Care, and InMotion; and eLearning videos for Total, Regus, EY and more.

I am the current make station voice of Magic radio in London and nationally on digital radio

Additional Skills

I'm an experienced, rounded and award-winning copywriter and audio producer. This means that I understand the needs of the producer and take direction well. I know what a busy producer is looking for and ensure that I deliver the performance, quality, reliability and professionalism you require. I'm also a friendly kind of guy - easy to get on with in a session; no diva ego to contend with!

As a producer too, I understand how important availability is - to know where to go to find a great, versatile, reliable voice artist who's ready to jump in to the booth at 5pm and help you get that last minute rush-job done and dusted to a high standard. That's why I strive to offer good levels of availability and quick turnaround via self-record, ISDN or IP.
