Peter was our 'in house' commercial voice over artist for nearly 3 years. As such he was literally thrown in to a variety of commercial scenarios from straight announcing through to extreme characterisation. Peter's ability to find the right 'character' voice and his professional delivery led to him becoming a favoured voice for several clients as well as his commercials winning awards.

Peter was absolutely fantastic to work with, his experience was a perfect match for my project. Going through the script and developing the character together was a clear highlight for me, I really appreciate how involved Peter was with the story’s themes and intention. He delivered everything on time and with a performance that followed every direction notes and that also brought something very unique and special to the whole project. Thank you Peter!
