A medium to deep mid thirties voice. A good solid sound for commercials, an intelligent, thoughtful delivery for narration and a wide range of character voices to fit games, educational courses and audio books. Straight reads range from well spoken southern England, to a cooler, younger, urban sound. Also extensive work as a presenter on FM, inflight and in store radio stations.

As comfortable and experienced behind the mic, as I am scripting, producing and mixing productions and with a background of twenty years in the radio industry, my combined experience and skillset has led to a successful expansion many parts of the media over the last decade - with numerous happy clients.

Within hours (outside of UK working hours a speciality)
I voice commercials, training videos, corporate video, station IDs, computer games and even voice track radio shows.
I also offer a (Sony, Arqiva and New York Festivals award-winning) background in audio production - so scripting, production and post-production are well within my skillset.
I'm normally able to provide a fast turnaround, and as a dad of both a baby and four year old, often find myself up at all kinds of hours, voicing work - so wherever you are in the world, there's a good chance I'll be able to deal with your project swiftly.
