My Voice Experience

I have been voicing scripts since 2007 when I qualified in radio production. Since then, I have worked on corporate projects for national clients such as the National Health Service, Royal Mail, and Oracle, amongst others.

I have recorded programme intros and dj drops, plus many adverts for radio stations around the world, and I regularly work on corporate narrations for training, podcasts, how-to videos and marketing promotions.

As a radio presenter and producer, I have an acute sense of timing, and can provide light and shade - the difference between reading a serious news story and an upbeat promo for a DJ!

I am a Council Member at the Community Media Association in the UK.

My Training

I invest in continuous professional development, belong to professional organisations and attend workshops and webinars to keep my skills up to date and stay abreast of trends.

1:1 tailored training with professional vocal coach including vocal styles and techniques, interpretation of scripts, drama and character development.

Additional Skills

Articulate, and able to deliver a great first read. Very receptive to direction, delivering subtle nuances to emphasis, tone, pitch and speed. Able to identify and deliver key messages quickly.

Experience converting technical or jargonny scripts into a smooth read, also refinement of scripts written by non-english speakers.

My experience as a radio presenter always helps with those projects which require a more relaxed, conversational style and in interviews. It has also given me a tight control on timing!
