Hi I'm Debbie             

Thank you for visiting my website

Are you looking for a voiceover artist that can help your story sparkle?  If you also want easy to work with, friendly and reliable then you’ve come to the right place.  

When I was 11, I wrote to the BBC asking for an audition to be in Grange Hill. They wrote back saying no, but I loved that letter and still have it. I’ve always loved performing and creating from storytelling, songwriting, writing plays and children's stories, creating puppet shows in the garden shed and even putting a crafty spin on some sparkly yarns through crochet and knitting. My teddy bear Steven was a captive audience who listened to me sing (Wham! and George Michael songs mostly) and play my violin as a kid and never once complained. I still have him by the way and I still love George. I saw George in concert for the first time in 1988 which caused me to lose my voice the next day from all the screaming I did!

I’m a professionally trained East London based voice actor with a Masters in Acting and a year’s training in Meisner through The Salon Collective. I specialise in corporate, narration, IVR/Onhold, commercials and children’s audiobooks. London hasn’t always been my home though. My early years were spent in Bristol, Leigh and Oldham before moving to London aged 9 with a strong north west accent which I can still do along with British RP, a general London accent, Cockney and Liverpudlian. I have regular training through Gravy for the Brain, Voiceover Kickstart, The Voiceover Network and Tanya Rich.

My VO journey began later on in life in 2014 when my friend Suzanne brought The Stylist magazine into the office and I read the ‘A Day in the Life of’ article on Rachael Naylor founder of The Voiceover Network. The article resonated and I knew that voiceover would be a perfect fit. Immediately, I began to research the voice world and booked myself onto an ‘Introduction to Voiceover’ workshop with The Showreel in London. After that first time in front of the mic I was hooked.

I’m a great communicator and have the ability to work with people from all walks of life as my past career demonstrates which has been varied and interesting. I’ve waitressed, made hotel breakfasts, been a library assistant, a sales assistant at Percy Ingle, nannied which nurtured my storytelling skills, worked in publishing for magazines specialising in mining and most recently as a business researcher for a large investment bank. Through twenty years in the corporate world, I bring research, communication, interviewing, problem-solving and customer relationship skills working with people from all different backgrounds and I understand the importance and value of friendly, open communication. All these experiences have brought me to voiceover today I’m easy to work with, passionate about voiceover, have a naturally curious nature and warm and friendly. I am genuinely committed to helping make your project come to life in a relatable, clear and trustworthy way, delivering it to the highest of standards and making the process stress free.

Getting the right voice is essential for your brand to keep listeners engaged and wanting to find out more. So, if you’re after some sparkle in your life or a calm, tranquil delivery all enhanced and shaped with my musical ear, I'd love to hear from you.
