VOICE OF GOD (BAFTA BRITANNIA AWARDS 2018)

ABOUT ME

My voice is bright, engaging, warm, contemporary and neutral with a native English RP/BBC accent. I pride myself on my extremely clear diction and sight-reading skills. My usual range is from kids to teens to young adults although I am highly versatile and have been known to voice old ladies and animals! I'm willing to try anything to give your project a unique voice. I'm confident at experimenting on the spot with pitch, age and accent to achieve the desired effect or character. 

 

My native accent is British (RP/BBC English) and I have a range of British accents (including Scottish, Irish, Cockney) and excellent General American and Southern American accents as well as Australian, New Zealand and other European accents. I am a good  mimic which helps with picking up accents and voice-matching.

 

I am classically trained with a BA (Honours) Degree in Acting and an extensive theatre background. My voice experience is in Video Games, Animation, Commercial, Corporate and Radio Drama. I recently moved to Los Angeles from London with a husband and six suitcases.
