Professional, polished, grounded female British voice over - with a twinkle of magic!
An award-winning British female voice over artist, you’ll hear me on everything from TV, radio & online commercials, to corporate presentations, explainers, museum & audio guides, e-learning, narration - including medical & technical, radio imaging, on-hold messages, IVR & more.
I’ve voiced for the BBC, Volvo, Danone, Samsung, GlaxoSmithKline, the NHS, Cisco, Deloitte, Governments & NGO’s, Mercedes, Mothercare, Bosch, Ocado, Citizen, Royal Museums Greenwich, Global Media Group & many, many more.
With over 25 years experience in the industry, you can rest assured; your brand is in safe hands.
I have a strong background in live broadcasting with the BBC, initially as a Studio Manager (sound Engineer), followed by many years as an Announcer / out of vision Newsreader & Senior Channel Director - across Radio & TV. Not only is sight reading second nature, I understand what ‘urgent’ really means! In fact, clients often tell me how much they appreciate my swift turnaround times, friendly, can-do attitude & professional approach.
A degree in Drama means I can add as little, or as much creativity to your project as you like! Naturally, I’m very responsive to direction - though equally happy to record without it. In fact, both my VOX Award for Best Female Voice Over & my One Voice Award for Overall Best E-Learning Voice Over Performance, were for self-directed recordings.
Of course, however we work together, it’s all about teamwork! If you need a female voice over, (or, to use the lingo, a female vo), please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
When I’m not in the voice over booth, you’ll find me trying to persuade the dog to go for a walk in the glorious countryside, swimming, pulling faces at Pilates, on another planet at a yoga class. Or possibly with my head in a book, having a good giggle with friends & family, making a mess with wool (saved only by a wonderful group of expert knitters), meditating, or cooking & dancing in the kitchen.... Occasionally, my husband joins in too!
