As well as being a Voice Talent, I have an extensive background in Theatre, Film, and Comedy Improvisation. They all feed each other, which I love.

I have a lot of in-studio experience, and approach each project with enthusiasm and professionalism. I am easy to direct and have a good ear as well as a sense of humour (whichever way you prefer to spell it ;) ).

I am originally from Dublin, Ireland, and have lived and worked, at various times, in Paris, Copenhagen, London, Boston and Seattle, as well as visiting a bunch of other places.
I have a great ear for accents and dialects and am a quick learner.

I Work in Standardised Patient/Motivational Interviewing Technique training as an on-camera Trainer/SP.

I frequently am hired for 'soft-sell' luxury spots and 'smooth British/Irish reads'.
A very popular choice for On-Hold clients.
