Voice Description

I have a mid-range tone and naturally speak RP English.

Other variations I can also naturally convey are deep voiced - either grating or smooth for story-telling/narration, 'posh', cockney (Essex & London), classic British villain circa 1950's in high and lower ranges.

Its very easy for me to incorporate various tones/shapes into my natural voice.

My Voice Experience

This is my initial step into the world of professional VO work however have worked on a number of musical projects over the years providing voice samples (non-singing) for tracks.

I'm a versatile performer, can work across the spectrum from thuggish to gentle to sinister to sexy.
More importantly, I am very easy to work with, am open minded, professional and passionate about what I do.

My Training

I have acting experience in the following:

ArtsED - Acting for Improvers - 2005
Brian Timoney Method Acting - 2012 - 2013
Gordon Faith voice coaching - 2012 -2013

Fronted various bands for many years as singer/vocalist.

My Studio Equipment

I own my own recording/rehearsal music studio.
It is fully equipped to record and reproduce to a high quality output.
I currently use Logic as my DAW & Adobe Soundbooth to edit audio files though have a number of other programs I also use to enhance audio quality.
The studio is fully internet enabled.

I have recorded music for the last 15 years and am familiar and competent in a sounds engineering capacity.

Additional Skills

My voice has experienced a variety of environments that have enabled me to express the full length of my range.

I captained my football (soccer) team for years. This enabled me to convey clear information but also raise the level when necessary without being unclear.
I can still shout clearly!

Working in an IT support/management/project management environment for 12+ years gave me exposure to a number of different personalities that required my approach to vary according to the situation.
Naturally calm and concise, I've never had problems being understood or relaying information. This involved face-to-face, phone, video conference communications with clients in Germany, Holland, Spain, Turkey, Singapore, U.S., U.K. and Australia.

I've project managed the building of my music studio and again, clear instruction and maintaining healthy relationships though clear dialogue ensured the project was completed within the plan and more importantly with fun!
