My Voice Experience

My experience is predominantly in children's audiobooks as a narrator and character actress. I have also performed VO for a pilot demonstration for a teaching software. Both of these require a clear, well-spoken and engaging voice for children or students to become connected with. I have also delivered, for example, more upbeat styles for commercials and a soothing tone for a day spa ad.

My Training

I attended the 'Arts Educational School' in Tring for two years where I studied a range of theatrical subjects. Later I was involved with a theatre group which performed at the Edinburgh fringe festival. I am now a writer of children's stories and VO artist.
