I trained at The Academy of Live and Recorded Arts (ALRA) in the 1990s and went on to perform on stage and screen. After an unfortunate accident I was unable to work in this medium and sought out an alternative path.
My passion for 'all things voice' led me back to university, where I very proudly trained for 4 years as a Speech & Language Therapist (BSc Hons). Whilst I loved every moment of university life, I still craved that thrill of bringing a script to life - luckily for me, the advent of decent home recording studios was born and I jumped at the chance to pursue this career path alongside my speech therapy!
I specialise in corporate voice-overs (matching to film/animation), adverts and my absolute love - audiobooks! I've just completed a 'gaming for voice-over' course so watch out gaming world!

I'm a long-standing member of Equity, the trade union for professional performers and creative practitioners and am a committee member for the East of Scotland branch of Equity.
When not in the booth, I work alongside my colleagues at Fitvoice - a community interest company that specialises in the prevention of voice disorders by remotely monitoring (via an app) occupational voice user's voices. If you are interested in what Fitvoice is all about please click on the Fitvoice link above.
And of course, when I'm not involved in all of the above then you'll see me out and about in Edinburgh walking my beautiful (but naughty) Pomsky pups, Oscar and Piper (Pipsqueak!) All together now - Ahhh!
