Craig comes initially from a background in studio sound recording, and has, over the space of 20 years, been providing voice-over for computer-based corporate training applications, animations and videos, and jobs have varied from comedy characters, to reading medical terminology, to voicing travel programmes and documentaries, some for high-profile worldwide clients and brands.
Having lived in the North, Middle and South of England, Craig has picked up a number of regional accents along the way, especially The Midlands (Brummie), Yorkshire (where he now lives) and London/Southern Counties accents. He can also provide a neutral or RP accent if required.
