Christopher is a fresh voice for all media types; bright, warm, friendly, smooth, sincere, pleasant to listen.
A natural and believable voice for online corporate, explainer and promotional videos; playing a character in a video advertiser; to commercial radio & Tv advertising.
Christophers' English non-accented / neutral sound is perhaps what you seek. Or he can be British, General American and mid-Atlanic; he is authentic at everything Australian. "How ya goin' mate?".
Some of the major brands Christopher has done Voice-over for include major banking brands Westpac Bank and American Express. His smooth, professional, broadcast quality sound is also sought after by property developers; one in recent times has been Bodhi Apartments in Brisbane, Australia.
Christopher commenced his Voice-over career in 1990, working as a presenter/announcer in commercial radio. When he was able to hold a 'gig', he met and worked alongside some very successful personalities & presenters, some of which can still be heard in commercial radio and in Voice-over today.
These early-on relationships and some of the great times Christopher experienced in commercial radio, have helped him forge and remain enthusiastic in this highly competitive Voice-over industry.
