    Short description of my voice

    Friendly, assured, trustworthy and authoratitive, clear, expressive and precise. Charismatic, educated, empathic, Informed, and with natural, reassuring, RP. Soothing, Sophisticated, Versatile, Warm, Voice of God.

    I am comfortable working in all areas of voiceover, whether you are looking for a clear and well paced corporate, documentary or educational presentation or the bringing to life of a wide range of characters in a play or audiobook.

    I can be warm and conversational for narration, upbeat and high energy for commercials; confident and assured for presentations and e-learning; knowledgeable, clear and articulate for all your technical requirements.
