So 2015…Where did it go? It seems to have gone like the speed of lighting or maybe it’s just me getting older and rushing around like a headless microphone!

2015 has had some blessings and of course many ups and downs. The industry has been exposed to many great things and then lots of rubbish too.

I won an AVA award back in January for my voiceover work and web videos along with being nominated for a VOX Award again. I recorded many characters and lent my many voices to large, medium and small corporations working with so many talented people across 2015.

Some great existing and new clients worked with this year include, Morrisons, DFS, Centre Parcs, Wisdom, Nimbl, Do It Crowd, BBC, ITV, Very, Littlewoods, ParentPay, UBS, Next, Britvic, TNT, Hertz and many more.

I have been lucky to work in many areas this year with TV commercials, promos in both Radio and TV, National/regional and local Radio commercials, Web videos and animation, Corporate presentations and training videos, telephony IVR on hold messages, imaging, instore, apps, animation, video games and documentaries.

In May, VOX 2015 brought the voiceover industry together again and it was fab with all the professional VO’s, Producers, Coaches, agents and industry professionals including many people from across the pond. A huge thanks to all those attended and of course to all who sponsored. Us Voiceover Professionals certainly do know how to party! There was of course no exception with VOXMAS 2015 held at High Road House and ending the year on a high.

I rebranded with a new logo and love it! (Yes of course it still is purple!)

NEW LOGO

Thank you to all my clients and colleagues who have used me, helped me and just been so fab to work with! I hope I’ve made you smile in many ways! ?

Hope you have had a wonderful Christmas and have a Happy New New Year celebrating with friends and family, not forgetting those who find this time hard without loved ones around.
