I WORK IN THE VOICE OVER INDUSTRY AS A(N)
Voice Actor, Copy Writer
HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
Greg's voice is heard across the planet. On radio/TV commercials, audio/visual narrations, corporate reads, documentaries, training films, in-store, on-hold and, he's been the imaging "voice" of over 100 radio and TV stations in the UK, the UAE, Africa and other corners of the globe too since the mid 90's. Clients - past and present - include: BBC Radio 4 UK - Classic FM UK - LBC 97.3FM London - NTV Africa - Emirates Airline - Coca-Cola - IBM - Microsoft - Toni & Guy - Virgin Radio Australasia - Jaguar - BMW - Porsche - Audi - Singapore Television - BHP Billiton - RAC - Telstra - Water Corporation - Marriott Hotels - Mitsubishi - British Gas - Lloyds Bank - Cadbury - BOSE - Sony - MacDonalds - Samsung - Specsavers... Radio Station Classic FM broadcasts across the UK. At the Sony Radio Awards in 1999 and 2000, Classic FM won Gold for "Station Sound". Greg was the primary voice of Classic FM at that time for several years. He's station-imaged for major networks such as Virgin Radio in places like Bangkok, Beijing, Koh Samui and Johannesburg, and, in Australia, in Sydney, Melbourne & Brisbane - and he station-imaged for London's LBC 97.3 FM - the capital's major news and current affairs broadcaster - for several years. Greg's been involved with worldwide voice projects for the likes of IBM, Microsoft and Hewlett Packard. He's the kind of voice you might hear when "on-hold" to places such as the Mayfair Hotel London, and any number of Jaguar, BMW, Volvo and Audi dealerships around the UK and in Europe. He's also voiced for several radio and television networks in Africa, notably as station continuity voice for Kenya and Uganda’s NTV Network, and was station voice for the Primedia operated Talk Radio 702 in Johannesburg and 567 Cape Talk in Cape Town for several years, as well as Choice FM Tanzania and Algoa FM in the Eastern Cape Province, South Africa. During 2009 and 2010, Greg narrated a total of three critically acclaimed television documentary series for Singapore Television - “Dining with Death” & “Flavours for Life”. In Australia, Greg is the voice of ongoing training and informational DVD presentations for the likes of Fortescue Metals Group and Grange Resources. Greg is also the primary voice for the Emirates Group when it comes to corporate, training, awards and A/V voice-overs. Last year, he voiced the part of the narrator and several character voices (in English) for a 125 page narrative based on the classic 12th Century "Song of Roland” - the oldest surviving major work in French literature - which has been released as an AudioBook.

I know you’ve been a member of Voiceover Universe for some time, but I wanted to introduce one of our groups to you.
I hope you'll check out and join a group called MARKETING FOR FUN AND PROFIT. It's a group dedicated to discussing ways we can market ourselves - what works; what doesn't. You’ll find some very interesting ideas and concepts there! And we would appreciate your input. Click here for the link: MARKETING FOR FUN AND PROFIT!
Thanks for your time! I trust our paths will cross soon!
Best to ya!

Drinks defo. Just let me know and a beer will be waiting!
I agree that you should sell your strong points first, but when you say you don't mimic, does that mean you don't like a director to give you a line read for you to copy? I think you'll find me to be a very different type of actor/director who makes life really easy and fun. Not every game is daunting as far as characters, but they often DO have a plethora of characters, and the good thing is that if you can flex a bit, you can have fun and get paid decently (not like a national commercial, mind you) and sometimes the experience might lend to some techniques or new approaches with the straight stuff. Who knows?
Well, let me know if you want to explore. Stay super! email@example.com
You have great chops and I appreciate the compliments. Feel free to join my group (ask a Casting Director) if you haven't already...and if you're interested, I cast for computer game voices.:) I'd love to dig into your depths and let loose all your characters-----are you brave enough? Har har
Good to see another Aussie here.
