Clear, authoritative, friendly, educated, everyman

Voice Description

I am an experienced stage, screen and voice actor with a clear baritone speaking voice, good diction, and a friendly but authoritative tone. I can offer characters from heroic to meek and mild, including villains and wise old men. Excellent comic timing and sight reading skills. I am also a qualified copywriter (MA: Professional Writing), and can put together and record scripts to spec. Voice is particularly suited to character work, audiobooks, narration, documentaries, infomercials, announcements, audio systems (telephone etc) and humours works including radio plays, sketches, one-liners, catchphrases and tag/loglines. Also accomplished musicals/pop/swing/light opera singer (light baritone with good falsetto) and rhythm guitarist - can record either.
