I have over 30 years experience as a professional, classical (and sometimes commercial) singer and have performed in most of the UK's cathedrals and a high proportion of the country's concert halls. Singing has also taken me to far flung places such as Beijing, Latvia and New York and, whilst I still have a lot to offer vocally, I am finally following through on what many folk have told me I should have done years ago; I am trying my hand at VO work. At this, save a couple of satnav projects in the late 80s, I am, as I type, a rookie.
I run my own ad-hoc pro chorus, Apollo Voices, and we have been lucky enough to perform in a variety of commercial projects, including the soundtracks for a variety of movies, from Prometheus to Early Man and Shrek Forever After to Disney Nature's Penguins!
In addition to this I am also a music examiner for ABRSM and am in my 16th year of employment. This work has taken me to the Far East on many occasions: Taiwan, China, Singapore, Hong Kong and Indonesia.
I've been married (to Liz) for 27 years, we have no kids but we are considering getting a cat. I enjoy photography, fine wine, the cinema and cycling, but not necessarily in that order.
So, for VO work, I have bought the kit, set it up (still trying to find the best space at home) and am trying to practise every day so that I have another string to my bow in years to come. I'm looking forward to meeting you all on here.
