Los Angeles, California, US
Genuine British voice actress with RP accent but ability to authentically imitate many other world accents well! My voice is distinctive, clear, warm, inviting, conversational, and most importantly, believable! I can change the tone and pitch of my voice to suit any possible recording scenario to sound engaging, friendly, natural, sweet, exuberant, uplifting, humorous, energetic, appealing and charismatic and, in contrast, am able to sound youthful, infantile, whiney, monotonous, deep, shallow, depressing and have a mature adult voice age range (20's to 40's).

My background lies in English and Drama and I attended the Guildhall School of Music & Drama in London along with plenty of acting/improv classes. I immigrated to L.A in 2006 after graduating from University of Westminster with a B.A in Commercial Music armed with my evolutionary radio show demo called Californikatyon...on the radio!; a self-scripted, produced and marketed melange about paradisiacal Los Angeles through the eyes of a Brit. This show was quickly picked up by a producer and soon released on iTunes as a very successful podcast! I then went on to have my own weekly comedic, glam-metal show at UCLA Radio called Californikatyon's 5150 which definitely gave me a taste for the mic. I then zoomed full-throttle into the world of voiceovers - a natural next step for me - with my first audition landing me a Smirnoff commercial and voice acting has been my fine-tuned calling ever since!
