I am an Award-Winning British Voice Over actor originally from London, UK
with over 12 years of experience.

I am based in New York City, where I have my own professional studio, although I'm happy to record at any studio in the NYC area and beyond.

Did you hear my voice on the new Suave shampoo commercials? Yes you did! And if you live in the UK, you'll be hearing me on the new Holland America Cruiseline commercials. Hooray!

Oculus Rift, the new virtual reality system, is holding demos at Best Buys across the nation. And I'm the voice of Oculus Rift! Go check out the system and listen to me expertly instructing you on how to use it :-)

And also airing now on your radio: my new Geico commercial!
Some recent commercials include Coca-Cola (see my demos page), Pampers, Verizon Wireless, Virgin Airlines, Hilton Hotels,
and Oatmeal Crisp.

My narration of "Beastly Bones" just won an Audiofile Earphones award. You can read the review here. I am delighted to have been nominated for an Audie Award in the prestigious Solo Female Performance category for Rhys Bowen's "Murphy's Law." My most recent awards: "Anita," by Keith Roberts, won the Audie Award for Fantasy narration, and "Dracula" won for best Multi-Voiced Performance. I was also nominated for "Call The Midwife" in the Solo Female Performance category in 2013; the highest award offered by the APA.

I recently won two Earphones Awards for audiobook narration! Read the excellent review of "Juliet's Nurse" HERE, or click HERE to read the review of "The Fairy Fing." I was nominated in August 2014 Audiofile as an Editor's Pick for "Jackaby!"

I have a global, contemporary, extremely versatile voice. I specialize in commercials, corporate videos, audiobooks, phone systems, and training videos. Clients are often impressed with my ability to read extensive copy in one take with no errors. I work quickly, take direction well, and am intelligent and personable.

My natural accent is British English. However, I am proficient at many accents including: upper class British, cockney, Liverpudlian, Scottish, Irish, Australian, North American, Southern, Russian, and Icelandic. I am also fluent in Spanish.

I deliver fully edited files, usually within 24 hours.
I can add music or sound effects, as needed.
