I was born in Chester but grew up in Yorkshire and that's where I think of as 'home', despite having raised my family within reach of a Tube station.
I did my first voice job, a book review on the radio, at the age of eight and have been talking while pressing buttons for my entire working life - experience as radio presenter, TV sound supervisor, live sound engineer and musician all means I know my sound, while having directed ('showcalled') many large and high-profile shows gives me an awareness of the 'bigger picture' that not many voice artists can claim.
Along the way I produced, presented and read news on a couple of BBC local stations, had one solitary appearance on Radio 2, played bass at the Albert Hall and did studio sound for the very first series of Masterchef.
More recently, I spent four years going back to my roots as a producer/presenter on High Wycombe's radio station Wycombe Sound, and then moved to the Next Exciting Episode reading (and writing) the news on a brand new venture, Bucks Breakfast - a live breakfast show with a familiar feel but delivered like a podcast. Personal reasons on the part of my partner in the project meant we had to call a halt after a year of fun and good reviews.
