I have a smooth and pleasant voice which can be both serious and low and fun and mid-pitched. It's friendly, warm, reassuring, educated yet not exclusive, a softer and more rounded timbre although I can provide an edge if required. Great for many styles of recording including documentaries, audio books, high end adverts and corporate content.
I'm an actor, writer, director, voice artist and mocap artist. I specialize in film and television roles, both dramatic and comedic, and have voiced a number of projects from charity videos through to online documentaries. I would be happy to voice a campaign or audio project for you.

"Justin Hayward is a great person to work with and very easy going. He is by far the best voice actor I have ever worked with in terms of quality and reliability, I would highly recommend his service. He is very passionate about his work and very professional. His understanding of the work made things much easier than I intended and he also follows directions really well. He communicates well and replies promptly to all messages sent to him. I can truly say it has been an honour to work with Justin and everyone should also have this opportunity to work with him too." Jeamie TshikevaKeylight Productions
"You have a great voice and clearly know how to use it"Peter Dickson, British television announcer, radio presenter and voice-over artist, founder of Gravy for the Brain
"Good to know I now have a great VO artist to call upon when needed."Joel Roberts, Director Can-b Media Ltd
"Playing a role of extreme importance through voice only, Justin's role on my interactive film had him play the role of a character that not only assumed responsibility explaining how the rules of this world worked in a way that made sense to the viewer and protagonist but also had to be done without breaking the illusion of an otherwise fictional story. He turned in an excellent performance."Dan Tonkin, Writer and Director of 'Survivor', DanFam Productions
