Some background and a brief potted history.

I am a freelance voice over artist and radio presenter.

I come from a radio background in the UK, starting by volunteering in Hospital Radio at a very early age and progressing into technical operations, presenting and management.

I have over 15 years of experience working in local commercial radio around the Midlands at former radio stations such as BRMB, XTRA-AM, Buzz FM, Kix96 and FM102 The Bear. During that time I presented a variety of programmes in every conceivable time slot, including Breakfast, Mid-Morning and Afternoon Drivetime.

I now provide voice over services for a variety of genres and in an assortment of styles, either remotely or in person. But true radio people can never shake their love for the medium, and i'm still involved in the production and presentation of a couple of syndicated radio shows.

My Mission

To provide a reliable and professional voice over service for a variety of media projects at reasonable rates.

My Delivery

I can provide voice over services remotely from my professional home studio, supplied digitally as either MP3 or high quality WAV audio files. Directed sessions can also be accomodated.

My Approach

  • Flexible terms

  • Fast turnaround

  • Efficiency & Professionalism

  • Attention to brief

The new ILR station for Stratford upon Avon & Evesham called for a breakfast presenter to help launch the brand - so it was off to Shakespeare country.
