The Voice with Experience

I have spent the past half century (goodness … that long?) interpreting other people’s words as an actor, presenter voiceover and audiobook narrator – or in guiding others as a producer and director, or as an audiobook narrator coach.

Based in the East Midlands, I sing in two local choirs, I enjoy my garden, my crazy dog Freddy, good food, and the company of friends and family.
