Born in a little town in the Yorkshire Dales, England, I have a versatile voice which is known to half the UK due to hosting top TV shows for the BBC, ITV and Channel 4. My voice is warm, friendly and sincere, but can also be authoritative, corporate, professional with an air of gravitas. My voiceovers can be enthusiastic, energetic, serious, informative, business-like, optimistic, BBC reporter, journalistic, and engaging. I can also do character voices and accents.
