Hi. If you’ve just watched my showreel, you’ll have seen a mere glimpse of the work I’ve done over the past 15 years. I thought it best to show you my current work and where I’m at now, and that leads me to the BBC!
Amongst other things I’m currently a presenter on Inside Out for BBC Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. I love this job; delving into other peoples lives, educating myself (and hopefully viewers) in an entertaining and interesting way. I’ve been doing it for a couple of years and long may it continue.
If my showreel was much longer I’d show you loads of work from my past, like me hosting live daytime shows Brainteaser and Memorybank (five), working with Richard and Judy (Channel 4), presenting Living Live (Sky), movie reviewing for The Look (Sky), gossiping with chefs on Taste Today (Food Network), loads of celebrity interviews for Preview (ITV), 2 years worth of live in-vision continuity (ITV2), bantering with Andrew Castle and contestants on ITV’s show Divided, plus lots more.
I’m no stranger to the corporate world either. I’ve hosted many live events for clients like Cosmopolitan Magazine, Argos and RBS, and done some silly stuff for them too, (see the ‘Flybe come Top Gear’ and ‘Prudential come XFactor’ corporate reels). I bring experience and maturity to the table and clients seem to like that, they tell me I’m easy to work with too.
I’m also a very experienced voiceover artist. Listen carefully and you’ll find me on the web, tv, and radio. I record daily VO content from my home studio for many different clients, (sometimes in pajamas, it depends if the client is in the USA and I wake up to an URGENT 7am email!) For the last 18 months I have been the sole voice on the Argos website, recording and editing VO content from my home.
I’ve also acted in my time, aided by my training at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. I left the school all dewy eyed dreaming of an Oscar (the statue not a man), you never know, I’m not dead yet, there is still time!
In short, if you need a host for a live event, someone to present a live or pre recorded TV show, work with multiple cameras, interview people, write the interviews and ptc’s, learn stuff, read autocue (without it looking like I am), work with an earpiece, inject some wit and humour into proceedings, voice your commercials/infomercials, narrate your documentaries, or represent your brand in a serious corporate manner, please do get in touch, because that’s what I do and I would be very happy to do it for you!
Thanks for reading. Now go and have a biscuit or gluten free alternative!
