Highlights

I have a deep voice, and no natural regional accent (although can easily put on a West Country accent if required). The deep voice can be gruff and rough, or soulful/seductive as required.
I have been attributed with "action man", "kind Dad next door", sporty, soothing, convincing, full of whatever emotion required.
I have worked on the acting side to be characters, but am natural at delivering the piece by using my voice as required.

Experience

Having gone from being a presenter and commentator, I have done a few voice over pieces that came to me having heard me. More recently I have become pro-active, and whilst this is the usual "throwing lots of mud at the wall" with thousands of other people, I have done a few pieces and improved my studio set up. It has ranged from short films, adverts, radio/podcast dramas, training videos, sports, demonstration videos, etc.

Service Description

As a result of reading the script, your interpretation and objectives of it, and understanding the target audience and what we want of them, we can create an audio piece that hits the mark and can be proud of. I love the creative scope of the voice, and when people realise there is so much more to voice over work than simply reading a script, so you will always experience my pride and commitment to the work we will be producing. It is amazing to hear how much difference one change to inflection etc. can make such a huge difference.
