My Voice Experience

Ian is an award winning professional voice actor with a flair for British and International English accents. His voice has been featured on TV, in Cinema, in Video Games, on radio and as an Audiobook Narrator.
As a British VO specialist he is used for corporate video, explainers, E-learning, IVR, Animation and documentaries.
His voice has been heard in all corners of the globe (if a globe has corners) and his client list reads like a listing of the fortune 500, featuring companies such as Coca Cola, Samsung, Intel, UPS, Mastercard, Volvo, Nestle and Visa along with E-Learning projects for The United Nations and The European Commission.
He has supplied his voice talents to the PayDay 2 video game franchise (as the voice of Vernon Locke), The Endless Space game franchise (Cravers Prologue), Bards Tale IV (Several Scottish Voices), Heros and Kings, Beholder and The Darkest Dungeon (amongst others)
He has been a bunny, a cat, a dog, a horse and a pig and if you need him to be a dripping tap he can do that too!
In short, if you have a project that needs a voice, Ian can step up to the plate and hit a home run!

“This amazing voice actor surpassed all of our expectations. A true master orator, simply perfect. We highly recommend him for any project you have!”
— Greg G

“We are extremely happy with Ian's work. His performance adds a level polish to our PC strategy game, Exodus Wars: Fractured Empire, that was previously unimagined. From everyone at Membraine, a most sincere Thank You, Ian—you are amazing!” … Membraine Studios

Once I've completed my review, I'll come back to you if there are any issues, but I've not spotted any yet (which amazes me, to be frank, given how difficult I found the voice work when I created our placeholder tutorials)… Mark S
