British English voice-over with a trustworthy and friendly voice, and an upbeat and fun style that lends itself well to commercials, infomercials, promos and radio imaging.
A more measured delivery can be employed for narrations and documentaries and an approachable but authoritative quality makes Mike's voice ideal for on-hold messaging, pre-recorded greetings and similar services.
Mike has access to a professional studio and can work at relatively short notice when required.

Primarily from a radio broadcasting background (having appeared on more than twenty radio stations - including commercial, BBC and Forces - across the UK since the 1990s), in recent years Mike has increasingly been called upon to lend his British English tones to projects in overseas English-speaking territories, as well as his native British Isles. In the last couple of years projects have included promoting outerwear stores in Ontario, sex clinics in Australia, dental surgeries in Thailand, tyre companies in Grenada, hotels in Colorado, factory outlets in Spain and the narration of a short educational audiobook for a Jordanian client...all from the comfort of his studio in the UK.
