This is a fun collection of stories - one by me, I can tell you it was a somewhat frantic day! Thanks to Emma and the +Voice Over Herald  for putting this together!
We said it before and we will say it again…voiceover talents are one the hardest working people in the industry.  But let us add another perfect adjective to describe voiceovers – DEDICATED! Mention the word HOLIDAY or VACATION to them, and they may stare at you blankly… yes, it has been that long since YOU …

A lovely review +Guy Rowland! I took the plunge today and purchased Symphobia, Symphobia 2, Lumina, Orchestral Classic Brass and True Strike 2. An important little addition was a dedicated high speed SSD dedicated solely for the sample libraries. Load times have been rapid and I'm very excited to start using it all in earnest.

Thanks for the shout out Emma!
“Your voice should be heard on the radio!” You’ve heard it so many times that you took the plunge into a career that is now your life and passion.  But some things are not taught… some things come naturally.  It is not a learned skill but an innate talent, a gift, a passion discovered early …

Story
Tagline
Audio pro, photographer and entrepreneur
Introduction
I am an audio pro (encompassing music production as well as voiceover artistry), photographer and entrepreneur from Surrey, England. I graduated from the Academy of Contemporary Music (ACM) in 1998 with Honours in contemporary music and I live in Prague, Czech Republic. 

I invest in early-stage business start-ups worldwide with a particular interest in internet and mobile ventures. As a music producer I work within many genres and disciplines taking productions from demo to release for bands such as One Direction and a ton of film companies. I record voiceovers for clients such as Microsoft, BBC and Skype. 

As a photographer I aim to take photos that stir emotions whatever the subject. I was that child recording holidays and events with my trusty Canon AE-1 SLR and 50mm lens. It was amazing seeing the reactions to the photos I took and ever since then I've been passionate about capturing those special once in a lifetime moments of people and places. I'd love to do so for you. If you have a proposal or would like to say hello please do get in contact - I'd love to hear from you!
