The Accent That Elevates Your Business Image! Gillian’s native British accent provides clients with a unique sound. But rather than a typical ‘stiff upper lip’ her accent is softened by her warm and comforting ‘ever so slight’ Northern lilt. Gillian’s unique blend of vocal characteristics, worldly sound, professionalism, friendly demeanor and versatility can help you meet your specific needs: She provides voiceover for the Commercial market (radio, television and internet commercials, promos and public service announcements) and the Narration market (industrials, corporate and business narrations such as corporate training, promotional video, product demonstration videos, web applications, podcasting, e-learning and documentary narration) Phone messaging, prompts, and IVR, and audio books. Gillian can bring your project to life with poise and precision! Gillian's sound: Young adult to middle-aged. Warm and refined, smooth and sultry, articulate and educated, trustworthy and reassuring, upscale and sophisticated, luxurious and regal, well-travelled and worldly, detailed and precise, caring and conversational. A deeper resonance lends itself well for a sultry and sensual sound. Gillian will deliver service with a smile!

Today she is continuously building a reputable client roster and is getting some rave reviews of the work she has produced for them. She is also represented by Donna Baldwin Talent in Denver and is building her "in the booth" experience working in professional recording studios in Denver. In Gillian's words, "I love working in a pro studio when the client is present for a voiceover gig ... not only does it get me out of my home studio, but it feels like a true collaboration and I love seeing the end result."
In addition to being an attendee at the VOICE 2012 International Conference in California, Gillian has had ongoing formal training since early 2009 in both commercial and narration voiceover at the Denver Center Theatre Academy, Edge Studio, private coaching and intensives with top New York coach, Marla Kirban and widely recognized industry pro, Terry Daniel.

Gillian did an excellent job narrating our 4 highway construction project scripts. Our client, SJCOG was very pleased with the final product. California residents will be blessed with her tasteful British accentDigital Adrenalin
as they envision the benefits of less freeway congestion and better commute times once the projects are complete.
I have worked with many narrators and can say that Gillian has been the best so far in her ability to successfully read and interpret the material in the shortest amount of time. We were able to do clean reads on 4 different scripts in just under one hour of studio time. She was about 50% faster than most – well prepared, coach-able and has great intuition.
Gillian delivered an engaging performance in the dome theater remake of the film Realm of Light. This was a challenging project, requiring crystal clear enunciation. She was most accommodating to my requests for meetings and rehearsals. Gillian took direction flawlessly and patiently, wasting no time in the studio. I would most certainly recommend her to my peers for any high-end voice over needs.Dan Neafus, Executive Producer of Realm of Light, Re-imagined, Denver Museum of Science & Nature
Gillian has a beautiful English accent and takes direction very well. There are several British talent in Denver, but Gillian is one I would recommend.Justin Davis, Rocky Mountain Recorders
Gillian is very professional and easy to work with along with her great sound.Ed Kaufman, Senior Engineer Coupe Studios, Boulder CO
She is composed and confident in a session, and can breeze through a technical script with ease. A particular sweet spot for her is that she reads with a most comforting and reassuring quality that would lend itself to many a project.
Gillian takes direction well and I’ve always been very happy with the finished product. She’s simply a pleasure to work with and I hope to work with her again on many future projects.

The cost effectiveness of her work is like icing on the cake...With so many positives put together nothing more remains to be said;Aakash Dhanuka, Kush Infosystems, India

It was a total pleasure working with Gillian on a recent video for IBM. In fact, it was the IBM clients who chose her voice from a number of of samples that we sent them. We were looking for a very different feel from the typical corporate read, and Gillian nailed it. She's incredibly professional, quick and easy to direct. i would most definitely work with her again and highly recommend her to anyone.Patrick Cullie, Senior Creative Associate, Leopard (an Ogilvy company)
