Cross between Garrison Keillor and Jack Nicolson
My voice has been described as hypnotic. It is warm, deep, personal, resonant and authentic. My natural accent (Canadian) is softened and rounded from 30 years living in England. I sound mid-Atlantic without the annoying bits.

My Voice Experience
I have come to voice over through story telling and tango. I started by being asked to read a bedtime story to 100 people. They sat mesmorised. I was astonished. I started to write poetry and then perform it at Tango festivals. The feedback was very positive; embarrassingly so. I was emboldened and started to write longer performance pieces. I performed at festivals and held the audience in my hand. I experienced what it is to 'bring the house down'. And it felt good. Women tell me they don't really mind what I actually say, as long as they can listen to my voice. (It feels strange to say this stuff - but I am reporting it has been said to me).
If I'd had the nerve I would have followed a career in acting. At a young age I won competitions in my home town for public speaking. And, of course, I played the lead in the school plays. (wow...) I have a day job as an engineer, but it's flexible. Life is short. It's nothing without a creative outlet. If you want warm and authentic, then consider me.
