My Voice Experience

LEFT DRAMA SCHOOL IN 1988, WHERE STEVE COOGAN WAS IN THE SAME YEAR! FROM THE START, VERSATILITY SEEMED TO BE THE SECRET OF MY SUCESS.FIRST PROFESSIONAL JOB WAS A RADIO PLAY FOR BBC RADIO 4. I WAS SOON TAKEN ON BY AN AGENT, THEN PROGRESSED TO INDEPENDENT LOCAL RADIO ADVERTISING... AND FINALLY GOT MY DREAM TO GET WORK IN ANIMATION.
I HAVE BEEN THE VOICE OF A RUSSIAN PANDA, AN IRISH PENGUIN, A FAMOUS CAT, VARIOUS GRANDMAS AND CHILDREN, AND CAN BE HEARD ON ANIMATION/PUPPET SERIES CALLED 'STRANGE HILL HIGH' ON CBBC - THE CHILDREN'S BBC STATION. JOSH WEINSTEIN FROM 'THE SIMPSONS' IS WRITING FOR IT. OTHER THAN THAT I LOVE DOING ILR AND CORPORATE JOBS, WHICH I DO MOST DAYS. I PRIDE MYSELF ON BEING PROFESSIONAL, FRIENDLY, AND EASY TO DEAL WITH.
I LOVE THE CHALLENGE OF ANYTHING DRAMATIC; I AM ALSO A PROFESSIONAL ACTOR AND DO THEATRE AND TV WORK WHENEVER I AM ABLE.
