    Additional Skills

    Covid-19 made me upgrade my own facilities, and I'm now increasingly adept at working in Adobe Audition. All my 2020 audio work has been done this way (i.e. home studio), and the results are much cleaner and clearer than I originally thought possible. More importantly - I have happy clients! But if a client prefers me to use a studio, I have an excellent relationship with a local recording studio. Their prices are incredibly competitive compared to city centre studios, the sound engineers are friendly and professional, and for many years my clients have been consistently happy with the results.

    Short description of my voice

    Gently authoritative. Also bubbly and cheeky. My natural accent is RP - and I love doing a range of character voices in various accents. I take great care over the meaning of phrases and sentences (my original career was as a book editor, so it's instinctive) - especially if the script is technical or destined for an international audience.

    "You have a wonderful voice and you really help bring the animation to life."

    "It's sounding great, thank you for doing it at such short notice!"

    "Very professional. Lovely warm voice"

    "The screening went great - your voice helped a lot!"

    "Thanks for the fantastic work yesterday"
