It's lovely to have you here. I am a British Actress with a focus on voiceover. With 17 years of acting experience, I enjoy working alongside production companies and game developers to create unique characters, voices and storylines so they can make award winning innovative projects that build on tradition yet challenge convention.
I grew up in the leafy suburbs of south west London, went to university up north in Lancaster and now live by the sea in Essex with my two kids and American husband. My accent is somewhere between London and RP - some might say relaxed RP with an estuary twang! Having a youthful gravitas to my natural voice, I can effortlessly glide from young dynamic reads to a more mature, resonant quality depending on the type of audience you want to reach.
I love being behind a microphone, ever since I recorded a song from The Iron Man at Eel Pie Island Studios with Pete Townsend and some of my junior school classmates! At drama school, I was told I had a voice made for radio (not a face, luckily) and fell in love with audiodrama. In fact, the first audio job I had won Silver Radio Award, Best Drama Special at the New York Festivals!
Those first few years as a professional actor, I concentrated on theatre, short film, audiodrama & promos, including touring Shakespeare round schools, working with Theatre Nomad and the National Theatre of Kosovo, and then I took a bit of a break when I had a young family - mostly being cast as Mums in commercials (typecast much?). I’d always wanted to pursue voiceover and came across a VO course on Twitter which opened my eyes (and ears) to the industry. I did workshops and classes, found my tribe and built my home studio in 2018. The past four years have been a joy – I’ve recorded videogames, promos, audiobooks, become a member of BAFTA Connect, and trained with some of the best coaches out there. Voice acting is now interspersed with screen work - still getting the mum roles in commercials and in 2021 I got to work on EastEnders!

I have a youthful gravitas to my natural voice, which has also been described as warm, clear, grounded and trustworthy.
I have a custom built vocal booth at home, lined with sound proofing & acoustic dampening and can be directed via ipDTL, Source Connect Now, Cleanfeed, BodalgoCall, Zoom, Microsoft Teams or Skype.
I work alongside production companies to create unique characters, voices and storylines. Some of my favourite clients are Ubisoft, Disney Jr and Essex County Council. One thing I love about what I do is experimenting with a range of vocal qualities to find an original voice for a new creation.
