My Voice Experience

I have recently come to the exciting world of voiceovers, but had a background in acting when young, also taking a number of LAMDA exams. I have a degree in Law, and later worked as an estate agent, where my voice was an essential tool, involving much personal communication and telephone work. I later worked for a private school where I was a focal point for prospective parents and again carried out much important communication by telephone, as well as in person. My voice has very often been used as the voice on the automatic telephone system, in the establishments where I have worked.

Since entering the world of voiceovers in the summer of 2013 I have performed the voiceovers for a conference held by Warburtons which was required to be performed in heightened RP, the conference being held in The Imperial War Museum, and a wartime news announcer's voice being sought. This was very popular with the client.

I then undertook voiceover training with the The Showreel, attending workshops and having 1 to 1 training, producing commercial and narrative showreels with much variety. I then produced a further IVR and on-hold message reel, produced in the studio to which I have access.
