Chicago, Illinois, US
Authentic British accent. Professional, natural and trustworthy. Sought out for business reads to deliver a tone that is either warm and professional, or engaging and natural. Believability is a hallmark of David's reads, whether for business explainers, e-learning tutorials, public safety announcements or nightclub commercials.

Since 1998 my voice has been used on a wide variety of projects. From business-to-business and internal tutorial jobs, to commercial reads for TV and radio.
National clients include Corona and Bacardi, for whom I delivered young sounding nightclub style reads. The West Midlands Police and the national Camera Safety Partnership used my voice for hard-hitting public safety narrations. My character versatility has been downloaded a quarter of a million times via the Traces of Nuts comedy show, and heard locally on the BBC.
I moved to New York in 2008 and was recruited by the Abrams Artists agency. I also worked freelance for a number of NYC studios before moving to Chicago in 2014, where I set up my home studio.
As an award winning producer, your completed voice file will be edited and processed by a professional with trophies and certificates from the New York Advertising Festivals, the Mobius Awards and the London Internationals.
Finally, I also work as a freelance copywriter for the major radio groups in the UK, and have over 1000 campaigns under my belt.

I can turn around most jobs within a day. You will receive a compressed broadcast quality file that can be inserted directly into a Powerpoint presentation or played on the radio, TV or internet. If you have production facilities and would prefer a clean file, untouched by filters or compressors - just ask!
