Some Things You Might Like To Know

I'm the voice of the BBC Civilisations augmented reality app, which has been downloaded almost a quarter of a million times. I’ve appeared in several Radio 4 plays, presented BBC Radio 4's "To Rent or Not To Rent", and can also be heard reading the news on BBC Radio Manchester and BBC 5Live

My notably warm and deep voice - RP with optional Manchester - has been used by BBC Inside Out North West, ITV's Loose Women, Aardman, The British Red Cross, Guylian chocolate, Longleat Safari Park, Asda, and the V&A among many others.  To use it for your project, get in touch for a chat.

My voiceover work's been featured on the Huffington Post, the Guardian website, the BBC, ITV and broadcast to members of the European Parliament. I can be heard on TV commercials, apps, documentary narration, in store promotions, Virtual Reality tours, telephone on hold messages and corporate videos.

I also - alongside fellow VO and voice coach Nicola Redman - run VO Social North (a regular meet up above a pub in Manchester) and make The Voiceover Social podcast. It’s available everywhere podcasts can be found, including Apple podcasts and Google podcasts .

Logistical Bits and Bobs

My acoustically treated home recording studio features a Rode Broadcaster and Focusrite Scarlett 2i2, with facilities for remote direction using Source Connect or Skype. I can provide finished, edited or unedited WAV or MP3 files via Dropbox, Wetransfer or any other large file sharing method with a very quick turnaround.

I also work closely with studios in Manchester and London and would be happy to help you book somewhere suitable if you wish to direct in person.
