From the types of work undertaken, starting with educational and documentary style engagements, my voice is distinctive and authoritative, which comes across to the listener as being both resonant and rich, whilst sounding confident and engaging. For narrative voices overs, the resonance in pitch is rich, deep and thoughtful whilst sounding persuasive. This provides an edit which to the listener delivers an endearing reassuring voice, ideal for either the informative or the gritty documentary style of voice over work required. Turning now to my commercial voice over work, it has been described as being both engaging and warm, whilst boasting energy and strength ideal for any commercial or corporate delivery. Key to commercials is the pitch. My voices boast a delivery of range, from rich, sexy and soothing, to theatrical, bright, confident and engaging. For voice overs which require talent characters or acting voices, again I am able to a wide range of character voices.

Computer & Software
Typically each project will be mixed and managed though Steinberg’s Cubase to ensure the very best results for both audio and video, which also enables voiceovers to be either recorded to picture or talk to time.
