If there's a voice that you're looking for that you don't hear in my demos, please just ask!
A friendly, bright, British voice. Playful and precise with a hint of North East England, although can remove any regional accent when required.
I'm a former BBC Radio presenter with over 20 years of broadcasting and voiceover experience.
If you're looking for flexibility, versatility and a wide range of voices and styles, from wild and wacky to silly and sultry character voices, why not get in touch and let me know what you're looking for - I'm sure I can help!

If you don't hear what you're looking for amongst my demos, why not get in touch and I'll see how I can help with something more bespoke. I'm always happy to provide a sample of your script so you can hear it come to life.
I've worked as a radio presenter for over 20 years where I've hosted breakfast shows, drive time shows, specialist music shows and news driven shows. In fact I can turn my hand - or should that be voice - to any format that comes my way.
Working alongside my role as a presenter, I've also been an in-house voiceover artist at the various different radio stations.
As a voiceover I've really been able to demonstrate my vocal versatility; straight, sultry, serious and silly to comedic, dramatic, excitable and friendly. Whatever voice you're looking for, I'm sure I can help you find it...even if you need more than one!
This is what a recent client had to say about the FOUR different characters I voiced for them...
"Julie did a great job with our latest project – a series of animations for a large corporate client in the technology sector. These formed the basis of a series of on-line manager training modules produced by our client’s HR department. The brief was to get the messages across succinctly and through humour, and Julie certainly helped us to achieve that, with her soft northern tones and sense of humour that came across clearly in her voice. It was a tall order – Julie took the roles of narrator, female lead, and several minor characters – which she achieved splendidly. Jennifer, the kindly and slightly matronly manager, was an instant hit."

My versatile voiceovers are recorded in my own broadcast quality studio, so that I can work flexibility to help you meet your deadlines.
Although I don't have ISDN, I do give you the option to listen in and direct by phone, if required. I take care of the quality recording at my end, while you can just focus on getting the very best out of the session.
Audio can be delivered with or without editing via email, FTP or Dropbox as WAV or MP3 formats.
I am based in the UK and working in UK time, but I will do my best to be flexible and hopefully we can find a suitable time for us both.
