I am a native speaker of British RP English. I am 53 years old and my voice is described as polished, educated, warm and reassuring. I am interested in all sorts of voice work. I have worked as a schoolmaster for most of my life and am a fluent speaker of French and German, with near native command in both languages. I am married with 4 grown up children who are (almost) independent. We have a house in the Creuse in the middle of France where I like to spend as much time as possible.

I have a background in teaching within the private school system. I was for twelve years Housemaster of a boys’ boarding house and have been used to dealing with all sorts of people and situations. My voice has been a tool of my trade for the past twenty years teaching French and German as well as in frequent public speaking.
I am best suited to audio books, narration and documentary work, although I turn my hand to serious advertising, promotion and telephone work.
I have my own home studio and can turn round small to medium jobs very quickly, in a matter of hours or overnight if needs be. Larger jobs will take longer. I am always willing to re-record where necessary and to send samples during the recording process if required.
I did my voice training with Gary Terzza at his VOMasterclass in London.
I have a BA in Medieval English, Postgraduate Diplomas in Linguistics and Translation (French to English) and a PhD in German Linguistics as well as Grade 8 exams in Singing (Baritone voice) and Oboe! I speak fluent, near native-speaker quality French and German.
