I am an experienced British voice actor with an extremely versatile voice. I'm excellent at narration, industrials, and e-learning. I'm also experienced with video games, animation, telephone systems, and commercials. I enjoy an added challenge such as medical or technical copy. I work quickly, take direction extremely well, and am intelligent and personable. I am proficient at all British dialects including posh, cockney, Liverpudlian, Scottish, and Irish. I also have flawless Australian and American accents (including regional dialects such as southern and new york/long island), and I do a great Icelandic accent too!
