My Voice Experience

I started my voiceover career in Los Angeles recording people's voicemail messages - they all wanted the Scottish brogue (and occasionally they wanted 00-sheven himself, Sean Connery). I graduated to spec commercials for Audi, Jockey, Direct TV and recently a national TV and radio campaign for Tilted Kilt (Scottish theme bar).

As a singer, I sang 7 out of 10 songs on the Tiny Oaks 'Sing Along with Me' CD, written and directed by 2 times Oscar winning composer Richard Sherman (It's a Small World, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Mary Poppins, Winnie the Pooh) and as an actress, voiced the lead character Amanda Acorn. Amanda is a 7 year old American Acorn living in the Tiny Oaks tree and is now an educational tool used in the Montessori schools across the USA. Amanda has performed in CD, DVD and appears in a collection of children's books.

From that job, I was booked by Hasbro as the Lady Bug characters in the 'My Little Pony: World's Biggest Teaparty' North American tour. I performed both British and Scottish LadyBugs in voice and song.

My blood curdling scream captured the attention of director Greg Harrison who cast me in his cinematic for '28 Days Later' as the British Scream Queen, Scarlett.

I am the voice of the game 'Oracle' in the latest SOCOM 4 video game for Sony Playstation and Queen Regent Moira Thaurissan in Blizzard's blockbusting World of Warcraft: Cataclysm.

I played a hot British nerd in a 'Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy' radio fan show.

I regularly voice in house training videos and Industrials for the company LRN.

I recently booked a role on the Cartoon Network's hit 'The Regular Show'.

I recently recorded voice over for a skit on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, playing the 'Voice of God'

My Training

Glasgow University - Politics and History Degree

Kalmenson and Kalmenson Commercial Class (Intermediate for VO professionals)

Susan Blu - commercial and animation 8 week workshop

As a vocalist, I studied with a teacher at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama and in Los Angeles, was coached by the 'Voice Builder' Gary Catona.

I studied clowning at Cirque School LA and performed a comedy Opera for the 'Your Town Follies' Vaudeville show in Los Angeles.

I am a classically trained singer, session and jingle vocalist and have performed all over Europe on stage as a rock singer.

My Studio Equipment

I use both Pro Tools and Logic. I have a Rode NTK tube condenser microphone.

I have scored and composed music for film, so I am good at sound editing.

Additional Skills

I am a stand up comedian (I write all of my own material) and improv comic (studied at Groundlings and UCB in Los Angeles).

In Scotland, I worked with a group in recording audiobooks for the Blind.

As a seasoned singer/songwriter, I am very comfortable in a studio setting.

I have experience with both teleprompter and ear prompter and have worked red carpet as a host for many years (on camera). I am quick on my feet with copy and can edit on the spot.

I am a cat rescuer - I say this only because I think it's important to list your passions and animals are my number One :)
