My natural voice tends to mid-range in pitch and medium in terms of tone. I can go into a slightly lower register. Producers hear a friendly and warm quality in my voice, although I can also sound authoritative. Definitelynot the young man, lived in, with some huskiness and a bit raspy, but can conjour up a range of the cartoonish and childish.

I am a professional actor(one Green Room award and two nominations, and a Maverick Movie Awards nomination), voice-over artist, and teacher of long-standing. I have a long list of credits across most areas of the performing arts. You can view them on the Imdb website(also go to "View Resume") and on the Bgmagency website where you will also see me in the flesh in a demo reel. I am currently about to open in a new play, "Coranderrk", concerning the intervention into the lives of an aboriginal community near Healesville in Victoria in the late C19th. My own voice-over business is called Voiceover Act or Chat. I have worked with a number of commercial voice studios in Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth, Australia.

Jim, whom I've known for nearly twenty years, is a celebrated actor whose voice transfers effortlessly to television and radio commercials. Whether it be gravitas for a straight read, to playing a dentist, doctor, loving dad or a mate in the pub, Jim brings a sense of a real person and understanding to the script. Through his many theatre roles, Jim also has a kitbag of character voices and dialects. His demo is worth a good listen.Risk Sound, Port Melbourne, Victoria. Australia
