My first encounter with Voice Acting was as a Soldier in a WWI set Radio Play and as the voice of Paul McCartney's 'Teacher' in a pre-recorded interview for Radio City in Liverpool in the mid '80s. Roll forward to the late 2000's and my wife bought me a Christmas gift of a One day Introduction to Voice Over with JP Orr in London. Workshops with Yvonne Morley (former Head of Voice at LAMDA) swiftly followed. It got really serious when I opened my Voice Over Business in 2014 and in 2017 recorded over 300 projects for clients in all corners of the Globe (If a globe can be said to have corners!)
