British, Warm, Soothing and Reassuring

Voice Description

Warm, friendly, reassuring and soothing. My classic British voice is ideal for corporate narrations, e-learning, audio books and commercials.

My Training

I studied with Edge Studio in NY and I have received private coaching from Wren Ross. Wren Ross is a veteran Boston-area actress, voiceover artist, and teacher and has worked with countless talent.

I record audio books weekly for the Perkins School for the Blind Talking Library at the Perkins studio.

I am a graduate from the University of Manchester, UK with a degree in Business. Prior to pursuing my career in the voiceover industry I was an executive at Accenture, a global management consultancy.

My Studio Equipment

My home studio includes state-of-the-art recording equipment including:

sE Electronics Condenser Mic, shock mount, reflection filter and Music Associates 6" Split Screen Pop Filter.
Pro Tools 10, MboxMiniPT9, 376 dbx Tube Channel Strip.
Files are saved to a dedicated Glyph 500GB hard drive.

Audio files can be delivered as follows: mp3 by email, WAV/aif files by FTP, etc. and CDs by mail.

Additional Skills

I have lived in the USA (or “on this side of the pond” as we Brits say!) for over 16 years and have spent extensive time on both the East and West coasts. Long enough to acclimatize but not long enough to lose my accent! I was raised in Henley-on-Thames Oxfordshire, the quintessential English town and home of the famous Henley Royal Regatta (for those into rowing).

After university, I lived and worked in London and then re-located to the US. During these years, I worked for Accenture, a global management consulting firm with clients all over the world, so I know a thing or two about client service. I am very comfortable with technology and technological terms. I also understand North American culture and pronunciation differences.

Voiceover is a passion for me. I love the creative process of digging into a script and bringing it to life. Plus I have something unique to offer. A British accent is global, well recognized and easy to understand. In a world where we’re bombarded by mobile devices, computers, TVs, radios and even cars – how can your message be heard? Be different, be British…… and that just might be my cue!

This Boston-based Brit looks forward to working with you.
