Overview

VOICE: I can do character and straight voice over and I have a good understanding of timing and delivery.
My speciality is upper class British, but I can also do Cockney, straight London and a very believable Indian and American.

Service Description

I am an ideas person who has been on both sides of the mic as in addition to being a voice over artist, I have worked as an award winning advertising copywriter for large international agencies. This included directing and producing my own radio commercials. I love writing comedy and have also written situation comedy, screenplays, a novel and a children's book.
I am Australian, but I have a strong British sounding voice and can do upper class British very convincingly (even to the British I'm told). I have been told I am easy to direct.

I work very fast and I am no stranger to tight deadlines. I am a perfectionist so you won't be disappointed.
