Gloucester, Gloucestershire, GB
I have a very neutral voice best described as BBC English - great for commercials, documentaries and explanation videos.
I do like trying things new however and quite happy to give anything a try and if your not happy and nothing is used - I am quite happy to not be paid. I thoroughly enjoy my work which makes it easy to give me best and go the extra mile!

I have several long term contracts where I do voice-overs in English for foreign television channels in India, Kazakhstan and Dubai as well as freelance work for tv commercials, company intro videos and a of whiteboard animations etc. which I find from sites such as this one ))).
I have my own professional recording set up and have a quick turn-around.
I have little to no qualifications for voice-over work and stumbled across this line of work whilst working at a film studio; a director liked my voice and asked me to tryout doing a voiceover for a project he was working on and I have never looked back...
The work has become an integral part of my life and when I left the UK in 2009, I bought the same equipment we use at the film studio and have my own studio. Although not full time, I now spend about 3 days per week recording and sending tracks out for clients all over the world.
I still get a kick out of hearing my voice on the TV or the radio and the work never gets tiring...

Depends on complexity - but can even turn jobs round same day - constraints allowing...
I usually read the brief and script first and then we have a quick skype chat to talk things through and get the stuff that is not so easy to put down in the brief... I can get a better idea of the tone and internation needed from this and then it is a case of getting to work and email something over.
In the unlikely event the client is not 100% satisfied with the voice-over (which luckily is rare!!!) - I can take pointers and do it again at not extra charge...
