Clearwater, Florida, US
I am British-born and have been working as a professional voice actress since 1997. I have extensive experience in commercial and advertising work.
I have performed and recorded voiceovers for all kinds of commercial products, from nutritional (Special K, Danone, Lipton, Uncle Ben’s), beauty and cosmetics (L’Oreal, Yves Saint Laurent, Maybelline New York, Neutrogena, Nivea, ROC), fashion (House of Brides, Elle magazine) and perfumes (“Glow” by Jennifer Lopez, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Narcisso Rodriguez), to sanitary (Glade, OB tampons), hair (Timotei fixing gel, Organics shampoo) and automobile (Hyundai, Kia, Renault) - to name a few.
I also have significant experience in the fields of dubbing and character definition for cartoons (including scratch tracks to help in the developmental stages of animation shows). References include movies by Roman Polanski and Luc Besson and voices on international cartoon Street Football. In the performance of these duties, I adopt many different accents, including American, Australian, Scottish, Irish, French, Spanish, Northern English, Welsh and German. I am also well known for my incredible array of vocal acting performance, ranging from witch-like to sensual to boyish, spanning all ages, male and female.
I have international experience, having lived and worked in Paris for 22 years. During this time, I traveled around Europe (mainly London, Paris and Brussels), performing my various assignments. I am fluent in French and have a very good level of Spanish; I have voiceover experience in both these languages. I consequently provide a comprehensive service, translating copies into or from French and Spanish then recording the voiceovers in all three languages. Since 2010, I have been living and working in Florida, USA.
I have my own broadcast quality home studio, where I perform all the necessary duties: self-direction, recording and editing. I also have a high-speed internet connection, allowing for recording sessions to be directed live, from any distance; I work regularly with clients worldwide in this capacity.

I have recently used Nicky on two separate projects for my company. Nicky is an extremely talented voice artist, writer, singer and musician. On both projects Nicky truly listened to our needs. She completed both projects with professionalism and went the extra mile for us. Nicky made us feel like our company was her primary concern while she worked on our projects. We could not be happier with her work and would not hesitate to hire her again.Chris Hillios (inventor) C.E.O. C-MED Innovations LLC
