I guess it started with people asking to use my voice for things at work. People liked my voice and I was always first choice to record telephone messages, videos, hosting webinars, etc.
It was only when a friend suggested I get into audiobook narration that I started to look into voicing properly. Instead of just speaking as myself, for the first time I started practising my technique, trying out character voices, seeing if I actually enjoyed sitting alone for hours on end just reading aloud.
And it turns out that I loved it! I always loved the challenge of bringing another person’s words to life, be that through book sleeve illustrations, children’s book illustrations or now, through voiceovers. That challenge hasn’t become any less exciting to me and I'm constantly working to improve the vibrancy and complexity that I can bring to every story that I read.
