Videos that feature my voice

Full-time computer-nerd; part-time voice actor

I'm a British voice actor with a voice that has been described as "a warm hug". (They obviously hadn't heard me being a crime lord!)
I have a naturally neutral British accent and the ability to perform in many other regional variations, from Posh Gent to Country Yokel,  Scotland to South London.

A Yorkshireman currently exiled in London, I have lived in various regions of the UK, picking up accents as I went along and storing them away for future use. 

I am now a versatile voice artist, with experience in audio drama, characters, narration and more.

With a degree in physics and a 3-decade career in IT, I'm no stranger to technical vocabulary and concepts but am just as much at home portraying one or many characters or just reading a good novel.

My voice can go from rich & soothing to loud & commanding to just downright daft.

I am also a singer (choral tenor) and a drummer.
