I love being behind the microphone. For a start, I don’t have to slap on makeup or do my hair, and if I’m working from home I don’t have to bother with travel either. Slatternly turn.
Years of prancing about on stage and screen have blessed me with a versatile voice which encompasses a wide age range – including children and the frail elderly – and variety of styles, from sexy soft sell to crystal-clear corporate. My natural accent is a perfectly-formed neutral British English (RP) but I can also produce authentic Yorkshire and Cockney/Essex (thanks mum and dad!), East Coast US and Mid-Atlantic.
I’ve worked across a wide range of genres including explainers, ELT, ADR and audiodrama. I also record audiobooks from the comfort of my cozy home studio. Oh – and I sing. In fact, those jingles behind a couple of the commercials are all my own work.

Stepping out of my usual range, I’ve voiced a more mature Mid-Atlantic poetic narration on Periode 28, a beguiling short film shot on Super 8 by from lovely team at Blitz Opaque. Take a sneaky peak at it here.
My latest audiobook narration, Frances, has just been released on Audible. The suspicious death of a beloved grandmother unravels the dark heart of family relationships.
