I've worked as a radio presenter for over 20 years where I've hosted breakfast shows, drive time shows, specialist music shows and news driven shows. In fact I can turn my hand - or should that be voice - to any format that comes my way.

Working alongside my role as a presenter, I've also been an in-house voiceover artist at the various different radio stations.

As a voiceover I've really been able to demonstrate my vocal versatility; straight, sultry, serious and silly to comedic, dramatic, excitable and friendly. Whatever voice you're looking for, I'm sure I can help you find it...even if you need more than one!

This is what a recent client had to say about the FOUR different characters I voiced for them...

"Julie did a great job with our latest project – a series of animations for a large corporate client in the technology sector. These formed the basis of a series of on-line manager training modules produced by our client’s HR department. The brief was to get the messages across succinctly and through humour, and Julie certainly helped us to achieve that, with her soft northern tones and sense of humour that came across clearly in her voice. It was a tall order – Julie took the roles of narrator, female lead, and several minor characters – which she achieved splendidly. Jennifer, the kindly and slightly matronly manager, was an instant hit."
