Rich, down-to-earth voice with personal, man in the street feel. Friendly. Trustworthy. Also capable of dramatic over and undertones to create authority and presence. Comedy, light-hearted, satirical moods are within my range.

Presenter of over 200 tv shows. Clients include Discovery and BBC Worldwide. Extensive voiceover work for broadcasters as well as social media and corporate film projects.
Since I have also written advertising copy, authored several books and written for a host of magazines and newspapers, I can offer the facility of writing voiceover to match clips or whole video/ audio projects.
I am also involved in producing podcast and other audio features for the Supapass streaming channel which provides an online streaming service for members of digital fanclubs, recording audio books and podcasts.
I currently work with Corecom in Norway, a production facility where voiceovers can be written, recorded, edited and delivered within a convenient time frame. My mother language is English but Norway is my base.
I graduated in law with a BA (Hons) degree. I have been freelance, working in the broadcast and filmmaking industries for more than 30 years.
I have too many associations to list here but they include the BBC, Discovery television, ITV and various international broadcasters. Among the more quirky associations have been appearances for Manchester United on MUTV and being the voice and face of a fishing computer game produced by EA Sports (Electronic Arts).

Send me the footage and a script: I will assess it and either write the script, read it as written or make suggestions to modify or embellish. The audio will be recorded, edited and mastered, delivered back within a short timeframe for your comments. Changes can be incorporated into the final voiceover and delivered back in the format you choose. Digital delivery of large files through We Transfer or Dropbox makes it easier for us to exchange files and to sync our workflow. I deliver!
