Hello! I recently joined Voices.com but have worked in the voice over world for years. I offer a warm, soothing, intelligent sound with an upbeat and promotional edge when required. I am good at conveying the sense of a text and making it come alive. My voice seems to be popular with clients looking for a grown-up businesslike voice. Age-wise, my voice can be placed between 35-45.
I trained as a BBC radio journalist and then worked full time for international news broadcaster Deutsche Welle TV presenting news live and voicing documentaries and trailers. I was also the Station Voice for Deutsche Welle’s English language radio service from (Phone hidden).
Private commissions include voicing numerous museum and exhibition audio guides, commercials, corporate sales materials, e-learning software and cartoon voices.
Currently, I work as an audio book narrator for BeeAudio and voice over professional from my home studio in the UK.
Your recordings can be delivered in Mp3 or WAV format via FTP or on CD.

For me, it has always been a great pleasure to work with Serena Gay during the years she spent in Berlin. The timbre of her voice, the quality of her interpretation, her ease in taking directions, her quick and flawless delivery turned our work on all sorts of projects (audioguides by "tonwelt", educational media by "cornelsen", documentaries by "oculus" etc.) into a particularly delightful experience – which, of course, applies as well to the final results!Klaus Kowatsch, Tonwelt
