My Voice Experience

Ten years providing narration and voice work for a mix of broadcast, online and internal video projects, plus a few wizards and warlocks as well.

My Training

Nothing particularly media-oriented. I'm actually a Mathematician by background, so happy to take on complex scientific or technical jargon. I started doing voice overs for my design agency's explainer and documentary videos; I still do that, plus webcasting, training, hosting and all sorts of other fun stuff.

My Studio Equipment

I use Rode equipment for most jobs - NT1-A/NT2000 (Large Condensor, M3 (Small condenser) or NTG1 (shotgun). Also available - Sennheiser Body Packs (surprisingly good electret microphone) Shure SM-57 and SM-58, various vintage condensers and ribbon microphones. All audio can be provided compressed (software or hardware), and I can provide fast effect and character treatments using Ableton, or a Roland ARIA VT-1 voice synth.

Additional Skills

I write scripts, produce storyboards, source music and sound effects and produce solid mixes. Plus if you need video footage to go with the voice, I run a small agency providing animated video, creative design and web development services.
