Highlights

My top priority is to make sure my clients are 100% happy with the quality of my work.

Here's some of what they have said -

James was terrific... as always! I totally recommend him to anyone who loves that rich voice of his! :)

James is just superb! He delivered a top notch read and has a sense of humor to boot. Fun and easy to work with. Looking forward to the next collaboration!

James is incredible! He hit what I was after with his very first demo - and only got better from there! In the end he turned the whole thing around in about 24 hours, including us communicating between Seattle and the UK.

Definitely a great pro - and I heartily recommend him to everyone! :)


I always respond to the requirements of each project, whether that be intimate and conversational, formal and corporate, high energy and dynamic, or laid back and hip.

Originally from London, I speak standard BBC English with an accurate and clear pronunciation, and have a good command of many English regional accents, specializing in Cockney (from Geezer to Gangster to Builder).

I have 20 years of professional experience in theatre, which I love with a passion and continue to work in as an actor and director.

For the last 8 years I have also worked as a Voice Actor, and have worked on a wide variety of projects for clients which include Heineken and Vodafone.

My extensive experience as a theatre professional has lead to not only highly developed vocal technique, but also to a broad and deep understanding of character work and dramatic content.

I am committed to always delivering work of the highest possible quality. I believe professional + flexible = quality.

Experience

I have 20 years of professional experience in theatre, having worked as a freelancer on more than 30 projects and performed on stage well over 500 times, as well as training and experience in singing and choral work. My extensive musical training and experience - which includes both playing instruments and composition - has been the key influence on my voice work, in which my primary focus is always rhythm and dynamic range. Having also composed and recorded music for theatre, I have a good working technical understanding of recording and post production.
I have worked as a professional voice over artist since 2010 and have booked a wide variety of jobs including advertising, corporate training programs and audio books and a series of lectures on English Literature for an American University. I also had an agent where I was living at the time in Amsterdam, and had several jobs where I was required to go into a professional recording facility and work with a director for clients including Heineken and Vodafone.
