I was born in London, England and was a teacher for 32 years before becoming a Blue Badge Tour Guide. I moved to the US in 2017 having married a lady from Illinois. Since then I have my own radio show on Huntley Community Radio and I carry out speaking engagements in libraries and retirement communities.
I have a British accent but there is no regional twang. I have been told that I should use my voice for narration, e-books. e-learning and anything that involves a “warm, trustworthy, non-regional accent.” I always get “I love your accent” from my new, American friends and from people who hear me in stores, bars and restaurants. They encouraged me to go into voice-over work. As a teacher and tour guide I am very used to portraying a range of emotions to both small and large audiences with my voice.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope that when you listen to my demo recordings I may be of use to you.
