    Additional Skills

    I'm a British radio presenter and sports commentator appearing worldwide on the BBC Sounds app. My confident and calm voice suits narration/documentaries corporate reads and E-learning/whiteboard projects as well as YouTube videos.

    Good at character voices too and accents - particularly Welsh, Scottish, Irish, Australian, Russian and general American.

    Short description of my voice

    BBC voice trained broadcaster/presenter/sports commentator/reporter. Been described by peers as having “a rich voice!” with a smiley, smooth tone but also gravitas. From the trustworthy story teller with a warm, reassuring glow to an engaging voice that's authentic and authoritative. A sophisticated, intelligent English/British accent with a slight south Welsh lilt means you can get anything from a smooth, sexy James Bond to a cold, intimidating villain!

    Referees

    Additional Information

    As a professional broadcast journalist for the past 25 years. I have a particular interest in documentary work and narration. I'm also an accomplished radio producer who can mix audio to broadcast quality standards.
