My voice has been described as warm, clear, friendly, sexy, fresh, persuasive and flexible. Mostly employers use me for my natural voice. It is an impeccable RP voice and can be tuned up to upper class or down to cockney depending on what is required. I can adapt my voice depending on the type of recording - for commercials my voice is approachable, accessible and fun, for narration - powerful, clear, compelling, for presentations - professional and businesslike. I am an excellent sight reader who takes direction well and can adapt to a producer's needs quickly and efficiently. I am an unflappable professional with a great sense of humour. The nicest compliment I ever received was a guy saying he had fallen in love with me because of my voice...

I was educated at Brigidine Convent in Windsor, England.
I trained originally as a dancer and worked professionally as a dancer before becoming an actress. I trained at Central School of Speech and Drama and hold a Masters Degree in Performance Studies. I sing and play the piano and have an excellent ear for accents. I train my voice regularly with voice classes and singing lessons. I also teach voice to undergraduates and adults.
I also record books for Calibre which is a charity providing books for blind and partially sighted people and I work for Interact which is a company of actors who read to stroke patients in London hospitals.

Many thanks for the prompt payment. I attach another invoice here.
I hope that last proof listening job worked out ok. Once I realised the urgency I was able to finish it quite quickly - hope it wasn't too late.
