Voice Description

I have a neutral british accent and have been a voiceover for several years. My accent is clear, warm, natural and versatile. I am often required to sound bright and upbeat for commercial ads, and sophisticated and informative for corporate professional use such as telephone systems, web videos, promotional and sales scripts and e-learning e-books and apps.
I am an experienced radio producer and former presenter, with much experience of working within the UK's top radio stations including Capital FM, Heart FM and XFM. This means that I know the importance of returning, clean, clear, broadcast quality audio to you. My home studio is a professional sound isolation booth and includes equipment of the highest standard - Neumann TLM 102 microphone, Roland quad capture soundcard and Adobe Flash editing suite. I regularly record live sessions with producers via Skype, recording the audio at my end and taking direction through my headphones.
I am available 7 days a week and offer ultra speedy turnaround times, often within 2 hours.

My Voice Experience

My background is in radio production and presentation and I have been performing VO's for several years. I do a variety of work including Commercial ads, corporate reads and radio station imaging and promo's. I am genuinely versatile and have an excellent commercial voice. My voice is very versatile and often used when a neutral, natural, clear british accent is required.
My clients include British Airways, Allianz, Herbal Essences, Lynx, Morrisons, Matalan, and Superdrug.
My corporate jobs include videos, websites, sales and training presentations and telephone IVR systems for a diverse range of companies such as Chanel, ARRI rental group, Northampton Business School and Keller. All of these clients required differing pace, style and tone and I worked to their briefs successfully. See my demos to get an idea of what i can do for you!
