My voice has been described variously as warm, soothing, knowledgeable, friendly, convincing, quirky and gently humorous. A British actor - born in Cheshire, raised in Wales and a London resident of 20 years - I can offer you a range of authentic British sound, from authoritative narration to a range of commercial and comic characters.
Whatever the brief, my aim is to communicate with perfect clarity the essential message at the heart of every script, and to deliver it with humanity, conviction and warmth. I have excellent sight-reading skills and an instinctive attitude towards performance, which enables me to swiftly access the heart of the project and to breathe life into even the most dry and technical material. I also have first-class professional proofreading and editing skills, and would be very happy to help re-draft scripts where necessary in order to help you get your message across.
