Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

Oxford English (i.e. Received Pronunciation) is my natural accent.

I can also perform in the following accents: Welsh (south), Irish (both southern and northern), London / Thames Estuary, North-east England ("Geordie").

Have maintained a Welsh accent throughout a 10-minute short film ("Old Age Pillagers"); and a southern Irish accent throughout a Hugh Leonard stage play. ("Pizzazz")

I also use Scottish successfully for the famous "To a Haggis" on Burns' Night, which has now become something of a party piece for me. But that's a period accent, of course; I would hesitate to deliver a contemporary Scottish accent, except for a short piece.

My Voice Experience

I started doing professional VO work about ten years ago. My voice credits in the last few years have included dubbing for a BBC4 documentary on World War II; many audio transcriptions for the visually impaired; narrating bible stories for middle-school students; and voicing animations for both Bath University and Laureate International Universities of the USA.

However, before that my voice was an essential part of my job in a variety of different ways for over 25 years, during a career in the chemical industry. During the last ten of those years I was Managing Director of a sales company in an international group and in that post I was a regular platform speaker.
