Voiceover

Originally from Manchester, I trained at RWCMD and graduated with a Post Graduate Diploma in Acting for Stage, Screen and Radio in 2009.

I have continued to expand my vocal skills and technique including additional training with Round Island, Gravy for The Brain, and in my extensive experience in working in audio over the past 10 years.

As a voice artist I am represented by the fantastic Brian and Rita at Spoken4, but also work independently from my North London Home studio.

I am currently using a Focus Rite Scarlett 2i2 (3rd Gen) and a Rode NT1-A Mic to record, and can also work with live remote direction.

I regularly record samples to pitch for jobs and also write original audio content, so if you are not quite sure what you are looking for, I am happy to improvise.

Please get in touch if you have a project in mind and we can have a chat!
