Los Angeles, California, US
With many years of voice over and radio, music and writing experience in Britain and over a decade of recording experience in the U.S. I LOVE to apply the \"best of british\" to a project and watch that project stand out in the crowd. Having worked both sides \"of the pond\", and being a Native Brit - my accent is described as real, authentic, and genuine.
I have been privileged to work with some of the best British voices in the industry and have enjoyed working on a variety of different projects and earning excellent references. See \"experience\" section for my work history summary.
Using a British accent for your project can make your project stand out in the crowd. And, that's my job - to make your piece stand out.
I LOVE when clients tell me that the voice of their product came out exactly as they imagined. Home Run!
I am British born, a native of London, born in northern England (Birmingham) and as an adult relocated to the United States. Therefore, my accent, language and dialect is natural and native. I am able to apply multiple variations of the British accent.
Company's like you select British accents for their product to make their product \"memorable\". Because I have lived both sides of the pond(!) - my British dialect is natural and thanks to my American journey, I can soften and harden the accent to make the Best of British more familiar to a broader and diversified audience.
I have worked with some of the most successful and endearing voice personalities - it has been a privilege to know them and learn from them. I hope some of their talent and skills has rubbed off on me.
My voice is described as articulate, intelligent, funny, humorous British sarcasim (dry - very dry!- Tracy Ulman and Ricky Gervais dry sarcasm to believable, calm, soothing, sincere, compassionate, nurturing, soft, expressive, emotional, commanding, confident, romantic, friendly, authoritative, royal, corporate, educational, narrator, story teller, spokesperson, confidential, character.
I spent countless years in the studio with top class Radio 1 DJ's and my prior works from childhood to young adult include commercials in the UK for Dulux Paint Company and the British Orange Juice Board to U.S. Audio / Visual training products for public corporations. I have copy writing experience and years of corporate experience in developing presentations, training, sales and investor products.
I look forward to making a Home Run for you!

A real professional! We hadn't produced this kind of presentation before and Victoria is really knowledgable and easy to work with. She was really responsive. We had several issues with script changes and she had no problem making all the changes for us. Since then we have hired Victoria for 2 more projects and highly recommend working with Victoria. She was flexible, easy to work with and reliable. We have used her skills on several of our products and each result exceeded our expectations. We develop software applications and her voice talent makes our product stand out from the crowd. We will use Victoria again....Venture Applications - Sandy S.
We selected Victoria because we thought her voice came across as professional but warm and we were looking for an actor that could represent our company to our stakeholders and she has a voice and accent that expressed sincerity and knowledge. Her expertise improved our script, she came in under our budget (a first!) and was extremely co-operative with our team. The product was successful due in part to our selection of Victoria for this part. The second piece we hired Victoria to do was an internal customer based financial product video with lots of industry specific language and terms and she came through on-time, on target and within our budget. We would use her again in a heartbeat.Catalina Funding - Bill. L
I listened to over 100 voice over auditions before selecting Victoria to narrate our sales service presentation "pitch" because her voice is clear, articulate. authentic, sincere and educated, which is the message we want to get across to our employees and clients. Plus, we market throughout North America and there is nothing like the British accent to catch people's attention! Great job.Business Technology Solutions - Stephen W.
