My Voice Experience

With a wide variety of voice overs from poetry narration, audio book, anime fandub, various computer game voicings, adverts and machinima over several years

Acting in theatres around the area since 1997 and various extras/walk on roles allow me to create real characters and emotions based on my wide range of experiences. These range from Abseiling and pot holing in the Welsh mountains, backpacking up the east coast of Australia and Tall ship sailing to France from the south coast of England.

I'm someone who adapts quickly yet constantly strives for perfection, making sure I have a little fun along the way.

Additional Skills

Having worked in customer services most of my life through bar work, waiting and technical support for various computer companies I have learnt composure in the face of adversity and an ability to react on the spot to whatever the situation requires.
Putting across the right emotion to someone who can't see your face is something I have been doing on a daily basis for over a decade.
In my personal life I've backpacked by myself up the east coast of Australia, spent several months in Atlanta U.S. and visited several countries in Europe as well as areas within Britain experiencing a wide range of vocal styles, mannerisms and accents.
