I’m an experienced British Male Voiceover Artist and Actor . You may already know my voice as the bathrobe-clad owl (Little Wiser) from TripAdvisor’s TV campaigns (2017 to 2019). More than 20 commercials, shown in the UK, USA and Canada. The US commercials alone, have aired more than 85,000 times* – seen and heard by millions of viewers.
Of course I do other things too. I’ve worked on video narration, e-Learning content, on-hold messaging, awards ceremony announcements (Voice of God) and dubbing. You can hear me regularly on France 24’s “The Observers” TV show – on their English language service.
I’ve worked as a professional voiceover artist for 14 years (full time for the last 7 years). Prior to voiceover and acting, I worked as a radio broadcaster and producer.
How Can I Help You?
I work with clients around the world, helping them meet their voiceover artist needs, as easily as possible.
- Save money on studio hire, as I work from my own broadcast quality studio.
- Save time, with fast turnaround – sometimes same day, depending on the project.
- It’s risk-free, as I’m happy to offer a free sample demo, so you can test my performance, technical quality or play it to a client for approval.
My studio is equipped with a Neumann TLM 193 microphone, Audient and Focusrite interfaces, and I use a 2018 Mac with Adobe Audition and iZotope RX7 Standard. You’ll get great quality audio ready for your production. (24-bit / 48khz mono .wav standard).
I can do ‘self-record’ and supply, or connect live over a variety of connections. You can even direct live sessions via Skype or by phone – so you can do it from your desk.
Voice and Actor Training.
From 2012, I decided that to become a rounded (I’ll do the jokes) and more experienced voiceover artist, I should take some actor training.
Initially, my thoughts were to take just a few classes, but 6 years later it has been much more than that. I have done vocal classes, 6 years of The Meisner Technique, and 4 years of Acting For TV classes.
I’m also currently taking one-to-one coaching with Nancy Wolfson (Braintracks Audio). Nancy is a world-class voiceover coach, based in Los Angeles. Always learning. Always improving.
Radio & Events
My background was in radio broadcast, with my first ever radio broadcast presenting an AA Roadwatch travel news bulletin on BBC Radio Sheffield in 1989. Since then I have worked for many commercial radio stations, including presenting a live network show across 26 UK radio stations, covering from Falkirk in Scotland to the Isle Of Wight. I also handled station PR and managed events such as pop concerts for up to 70,000 people.
I’ve been a computer geek all my life, so I have some knowledge of the web, HTML, CSS, PHP, mySQL, WordPress and other CMS, Video Editing and other media content. It helps me talk your language when producing content for a variety of purposes.
What I Offer.
I believe there is huge value in building long-term working relationships. I specialise in the corporate and commercial sectors. I’m here to offer advice, help you do the best work possible, on time and to budget.
Call me for a chat, or drop me an email, and we can discuss your project. No obligation.
