My Voice Experience

I learnt Voice-Over from the great Bernard Shaw, a man who had worked with Spike Milligan and The Goons and understood well timed comedy. Bernard is no longer with us, but his teaching has stayed with me ever since I was lucky enough to meet him.

I have been the voice of Wild-Aid's conservation campaign over the past three years. I have voiced nature documentaries primarily on Sharks, Rhino's and Tigers as the charity works to stop the practices of hunting them for their fins, horns and furs. The projects were very successful, reaching an audience of up to 50,000,000 a week on China's internal flights, and on their transport networks.

Recently I have voiced several different characters at the National Railway Museum in York, UK. If you ever find yourself with an hour to spare at York station, go and visit! I'm several loaders, porters, victorian gentlemen, railway guards and even a policeman.

I am currently performing in The Longest running satirical sketch show: News Revue in London. Here I play many politicians, World Leaders and Celebrities.

I'm looking forward to developing many future characters, for many future projects.
