'it’s never just talking'
If you need a truly professional voiceover artist, with the skills & experience to lift your copy off the page & straight into the ears, hearts and minds of your audience, look no further! It will be my pleasure to take your project & your brand to the next level & sprinkle a bit of voiceover magic. It’s never ‘just talking’.
An award-winning British female voice over artist, I’ve been helping clients to connect with their audiences for over 30 years. 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. My work is all about human connection.
Rest assured, you’re in safe hands. I’ve voiced for the BBC, Volvo, Danone, Samsung, GlaxoSmithKline, the NHS, Cisco, Deloitte, Diageo, Governments & NGO’s, Mercedes, Mothercare, Bosch, Ocado, Citizen, Royal Museums Greenwich, Global Media Group & many, many more.
For your convenience and comfort, I voice safely & remotely from my broadcast quality studio. If you’d like to listen in & direct, or if you’d like me to connect with a studio near you, I have everything you need to do just that. Of course, I’m equally happy to just crack on & send you the files, too! Occasionally, I’m asked to attend another studio in person & that can be arranged.
Clients often tell me how much they appreciate my swift turnaround times, friendly, can-do attitude & professional approach. A strong background in live broadcasting across TV & Radio as a BBC voice & Senior Channel Director - announcing, news reading & pressing a lot of buttons to put programmes to air (not to mention a few years as BBC Studio Manager or sound engineer) - means that sight reading is second nature & I understand the true meaning of the word ‘urgent’!
Need something a little different? 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, 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 UK female voice over, (or, to use the lingo, a female vo or fvo), 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!
I look forward to working with you.
