My Voice Experience

I have worked as a VO artist for 10 years, doing small ads for radio (millerhomes, arnold clarke, Natwest bank, university of cumbria last year) and series voice for documentaries and big ad campaigns. The latest one was the voice for Eharmony's campaign, and also Danone in the UK. I love my job and look to it as an acting job each time, with all the same range of focus, skills and expertise thats needed. I might be the only VO artist you night have who warms up beforehand!

Each year I do two weeks with the Voice Studio International in London, UK, to work on myself and I feel comitted to bringing the whole range of my acting work and technical chops to each job, however big or small, to make it the best it can be in the shortest amount of time for the client.
