Voice Description

I have a natural, neutral British accent which has been described in numerous ways:

warm, professional, comforting, sincere, trustworthy, intelligent, believable.
This means I've worked with numerous companies where the 'message' is the most important part of the project - e-learning/training, narrations, documentaries, inspirational and motivational business audio books, corporate videos, presentations

That said, I also work on other styles of projects where my voice has been described as:

fun, lively, upbeat, smooth, sexy, soothing, childlike with believable characters.
This lets me work on promo / sales videos, youth-targeted products, children's projects/audio books, general audio books with characters, games characters, TV & radio ads.

My Training

I originally trained as an actress & singer at college and had already had small parts in TV and film productions as well as small and lead roles in theatre productions.

I transferred these skills to voiceovers, joined an agency and was working professionally soon after, where my 1st job was for Pantene Shampoo using an Irish accent, followed by becoming the voice of one the first IVR phone products for Orange called 'Wildfire'.

My training has been through experience ever since :)

My Studio Equipment

I have a custom built recording studio which includes:

- Studiobricks ONE professional sound booth
- Rode & Shure microphones
- Pro Tools recording & editing software
- Mbox
- Open & closed headphones and studio playback speakers
- Monitors in both the sound booth and the editing suite - which is great as I can use split screen and record/read from script only or play video and 'record-to-picture'.
- ipdtl

Additional Skills

I have also have a background as a musician and singer.

This really helps when a video comes with music attached as I can quickly gauge the tone, pace and feel needed from the voiceover to complete the project and make it gel together.

If clients are unsure I can also advise which style or piece of music would best enhance their project.

I have studied drama and English which enables me to proof read scripts and provide competent re-writes if required, to make the script flow more naturally or help translated scripts sound more 'UK'.

I'm really interested in new film, theatre and art and I've found this has seeped through into my work life at points, where clients have asked for my advice whilst looking for new ways to engage their audience in their products.
