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
Who: Born and raised in London, England. Been living and working in New York since September 2003. I'm a real believer in mind over matter and that you have to laugh and stay positive at all times. I want to keep listening and learning. How: Started taking voice classes with the great Marla Kirban in New York in September 2005. These continue every week to this day. She, along with Bryant Falk, produced my first demo at the end of January 2006. On March 2nd (my brother Andrew's birthday) that year I signed with Don Buchwald & Associates in New York. My first booking was on the same day - promo's for the History Channel. Since then I’ve done radio and TV commercials for, amongst others, Land Rover, British Airways, Coca-Cola, Motorola and Gwen Stefani. Also, TV political ads, English-language DVDs and ESL courses and Audiobooks for most of the major publishers. And there have been hundreds of Internet marketing and training videos for Fortune 500 companies, and further TV promos for Cartoon Network, AETN International and MTV. Most of the jobs I do are from my own ISDN studio.

Thanks for the add! :-)
I use a Manley tube mic - but I've always contended that the choice of microphone is highly subjective. When you find one that pleases you - that is, it reproduces your voice the way you "hear" it in your head, stop.
In general, the tried and true standards, like the Sennheisser 416 are always a pretty good bet. If you an ever get your hands on a RCA 44 or 77 (oldies but goodies) you might be interested in seeing what they do for your voice.
Hope we meet in person sometime....I'd like to have you just talk at me for a while with that lovely voice of yours.
