I have an authoritative "Queen's English" British accent.
I can also perform UK regional accents - from a brash Yorkshire to a more "sing song" west country accent.
Irish by descent I am comfortable with the lilting Blarney of Southern Ireland.
My voice can be warm and witty or chillingly cold and concise.
For educational presentations I can provide a smooth and articulate delivery.

My Voice Experience

I have been the host of a classical music show for a number of years. This employs my crisp British accent in a mellifluous and educational manner.
I am the voice of an educational soap dispenser, engaging young children with factoids so that they actually wash their grubby hands.
I am the voice of a number of characters in Wizard 101 for Kingsisle Communications - this has included witches, spiders, and other assorted characters from the UK, Africa and exotic eastern countries.
I am also the voice of a number of characters in Pirate 101 for Kingsisle Communications these have included authorative naval officers and rambling west country pirates and everything in between.

My Training

I hold the UK medical degree of Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery MB BS and the post graduate qualification of Member of the Royal College of Physicians (MRCP).
I am employed at a public radio station in Austin Texas where I host a weekly show.
I trained in voice over with Renee Beale here in Austin
I completed an Improvisation Course in 2012.

My Studio Equipment

I am an on air radio host and so have access to a broadcast standard recording studio where I can also edit my auditions and other projects.

Additional Skills

I am trained as an MD and in that role I lectured on a regular basis to doctors and other healthcare professionals. I mixed information with humor and received high ratings.
Complex scientific and medical material is familiar to me and pronounciation is not an issue.
