Exeter, Devon, GB
My natural voice is a standard British accent (sometimes known as RP, Southern or BBC English), with other regional accents available (father from the West Country, mother from Birmingham, and have lived in London, Suffolk and Manchester). I have a gorgeous studio overlooking Lyme Bay in Devon, England, equipped with high-spec hardware and software, perfect for recording and producing voiceover and audiobooks to a professional standard. I am perhaps best known for the cover-mounted audio CDs on Allen Carr's self-help books on quitting drinking, smoking and weight loss (Allen's books have sold over 15 million copies worldwide), and have appeared as a contributor on Sky TV News, BBC Radio Five Live, RTHK Radio 3 Hong Kong, BBC Radio London and BBC Radio Manchester. I am an empty nester, a full-time freelancer, and have no commitments except to provide my clients with excellent and timely work. I hope to be speaking for you soon.

I first started out as a local radio presenter back in the 80s, and over the years have done many other kinds of voice work. I am perhaps best known for the cover-mounted audio CDs on the English language versions of Allen Carr's self-help books on quitting drinking, smoking and weight loss (Allen's books have sold over 15 million copies worldwide). I have done many audiobook titles on ACX for Audible/Amazon/iTunes, and have dozens of corporate clients who use me mainly for projects needing an educated, informative and expressive voice. Examples are voiceovers for online training courses, product information videos, website audio introductions, tourist bus commentaries, children's stories, fine art collection descriptions, patient information leaflets for the blind, meditation and affirmation soundtracks, and many others.

I am able to take your script and turn it into professional-quality voiceover in a range of British accents. I will follow your direction on style and tone and can deliver any special requirements regarding timing. I can sync a voice track to your video if required. I will edit the voice recording to remove any errors or mouth noise, and can provide either unprocessed sound or a finished file that was been noise-reduced, EQ'd, compressed, limited and normalised to provide broadcast-quality audio.
Rob quickly understood the house style of our extensive range of ‘Easyway’ books, and over the last few years has authored and voiced scripts for the CDs accompanying newly released titles relating to smoking, weight loss and drinking. Rob is highly professional and a delight to work with.Arcturus Publishing London

Quick turnaround, good communication, high-quality result.Sulis Fine Art
Rob has been absolutely BRILLIANT with this project. His voice over suited my project a treat and he was very accommodating. The turn around of completed work was extremely quick and he was more than happy to re record some amendments if some of the work changed at my side of the project. I will definitely use him again. Thanks Rob, you are a star! :)Sonia Hollis British Sign Language
I have used Rob before in a previous project and then needed something extra to do which was quite urgent. The turn around was fantastic...less than an hour from inquiring to actually delivering. Rob's work is brilliant and for future work he will be my 'go to' person....Thanks Rob....:)
Great work, great sound, professional - just what we were looking for.Sun Tech Vet
Rob was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was quick, provided us with something that was of a very high-quality and required no revision with his first take. He understood the brief beautifully. I would highly recommend Rob to anyone looking for talented and professional voice actor.Adam Reed Solutions
Rob was quick in both replying and executing the work. He was also able to include a female voice, and the combined result of three different voices was completed most satisfactorily.Amateur Photography Society, Newton Abbot
Rob is an excellent voice talent. Always delivers high-quality work and on time. I look forward to working with Rob again in the near future!UK Mobile Discos
We chose Rob for all our animations because it was effortless and pleasant to work with him. He has a great voice and is that kind of freelancer who overdelivers. We needed him to turn our scripts into a more native English too, and he did it very well. His input and expertise were very appreciated.Hahaha2impossible
For sure, we will be working with him again.
Rob helped us with the audio recording of 3 PILs and we were extremely happy with the results! The service was perfect from start to end, we hope we will have more opportunities to work with him!NVLS International
Rob is a great Voice over to work with. He is very helpful and approachable and is always available to answer any question. He brought some good ideas to the project. Highly recommended!Tuner Media
Rob completed audio narration of a dense academic text, modulated perfectly and pulled you into the work. This engagement can not be faked. He did the prepwork and deeply understand the meaning of the text. Not easy to do. highly recommended.Project Gutenberg
