Additional Skills

With over 25 years industry experience, I began my career as a Sound Engineer, spending five years at Broadcasting House in London. From that solid foundation, I went on to become an Announcer, Newsreader & Senior Channel Director, working across TV & Radio, I broke away to become a self-employed voice over in 2006.
I enjoy good relationships with my clients, fostering a team approach to ensure the best result.
Writing experience means I can lend a hand with scripts if required.
I'm happy to take direction, & equally happy to just 'get on with it'. Clients have commented on my rare ability to take direction so swiftly!
I am accustomed to dealing with complex scripts & tricky pronunciations, eg medical & technical terms & place names.

Having worked in live broadcasting, I work quickly & efficiently under pressure - short turnarounds can usually be accommodated.
