Voice Description

My 'go-to' voice has a smooth base to it, a deep, clear, resonant sound that I use for professional purposes - narrations, corporate work etc..

I can also run a wide variety of accents and pitches for commercials and audiobooks and character work.

Commercials run from sexy and flirtatious, casual and conversational to fun, fast and high energy.

I use character voices from the British working class (Cockney) through to the upper classes, aristocracy and the Queen's English. I'm also highly capable and well versed in the many regional British accents including Scottish.

Through audiobooks I have played young children (male and female) all the way up and including men and women in their 90s. Soft and hard characters, good and evil.

I can also work in standard American.

I also have a big presence in the Audiobook scene and have recorded 60+ titles for all the major publishers.

My Training

Acting scholarship for 1 year to The Academy Drama School in London.

3 Years at a top London Drama School - Arts Educational (Andrew Lloyd Webber's School).

I have trained in all aspects of acting as well as singing, voice, speech - including phonetics and accents.

My Studio Equipment

I have a fully enclosed sound booth in my spare room. Double walled and insulated giving it a fully professional quality of sound production.
The area I live is also very quiet.
I use a Neumann TLM 103 in the studio and Pro Tools 10 via a mac mini for recording.

Additional Skills

I have a full classical training in acting and theatre.
This included 3 years of work in Speech and Voice which covered everything including accents and phonetics.

Since then I have worked in top London Theatre productions, I played one of the leads in the West End production of Mamma Mia.
TV - I have had roles in network television series both in the UK and US.
Film - over 15 features, many international releases.
Commercials - over 50 on camera campaigns.
Voice - I have run the total spectrum here, corporate to commercial to audiobooks to video games to animation.

The all around experience I have in all mediums has been invaluable in my voice career. It gives me versatility as well as great technic and a full understanding of my voice and how it works and how to get the best out of it.
