About

Need a voiceover for your corporate explainer? I can help! A dynamic voice for a commercial? Look no further! If it’s vibrant, fully-formed characters you need, I’m your man!

My natural baritone is authoritative yet relatable, engaging without being overbearing; ideally suited to getting those key messages across to your target audience. And as a trained professional actor, I can adapt my voice to suit your needs. Whatever the job, my approach remains the same: LISTEN to the client, RESEARCH the project, EXCEED expectations.

Happy clients include CELEBRITY CRUISES, ERNST & YOUNG, COSTAIN, NATWEST, LEUMI BANK UK, SALARY FINANCE and ASTRAZENECA. I'm proud to say that the videogame MORTAL SHELL, on which I voiced two lead characters, was nominated for BEST DEBUT GAME at the GAME AWARDS 2020.
