Backstory

 

Born in a sprawling city of steel, glass and macadam, but living now in the rural climes of South West England, it's fair to say that I'm a child of two worlds. Spending most of my youth preoccupied with finding a direction in life, to my eternal shame it was only when I reached the age of twenty-six that I began to appreciate the full beauty of the land around me - that was the first day I walked the North Cliffs coastal path, from the thickly blanketed Tehidy Woods to the lighthouse at Godrevy Point. While big cities offer the razzle-dazzle and exposition of vivid lights, nothing brightens the mood like the sight of angry waves crashing against the steadfast barriers of the Cornish cliffs. It's an eternal dance of water and rock that takes the breath away. Standing amid winds so strong that frothy remains of broken waves were tossed inland and scattered like snowflakes is an experience I am unlikely to forget.

From a young age I had an affinity for movies and video games, spending a lot of my time locked in multiplayer battles on Mario Kart, Street Fighter and Super Bomberman with my friends. As time progressed I was thrilled to see video games become an excellent medium for story telling. Games like Metal Gear Solid and Final Fantasy X blew my mind, opening me up to the effect that great voice acting could have on video games. It was only natural that I would one day want to marry my love of gaming with my love of voice acting; modern PC and audio technology has finally made that dream a reality.

My Experience

 

Please click here for my full résumé.

A summary of some of my more notable roles follows:

 

Neofeud is a tricky yet satisfying, point-n-click detective adventure, interspersed with fast-paced action shootouts, set it a handpainted, uber-gritty, noir futureland. In the game I play the role of "Brainhead" a once promising robot doctor who was cast into the underworld and forced to work alongside drug-dealers. Brainhead is a bitter, sarcastic character and was a joy to play! As the game is still in developement, I have provided a short sample of my voice work below.

In Ghost Song, the exciting Sci-Fi "Metroidvania" adventure, I play multiple roles, chief amongst which is Paul of the 82th Oath, an ailing, regretful man fighting a lonely battle. As the game is currently still in development, I can provide only a short sample of my work. You can check out gameplay footage, including some of the other talented voice actors featured in Ghost Song, on the game's development channel.

In Among the Heavens, an addictive puzzle/time management game, I play the roles of protagonists Cid and Markus, two old friends who decide to become publicans by opening a series of taverns in a fantasy kingdom in the sky. In playing two characters (Cid an energetic young sevitor and Markus an older, experienced barman) I was required to provide two distinct and charismatic voices to compliment the charming, hand-drawn style showcased by the game.

In Hidden: On the Trail of the Ancients, a first person point & click horror/adventure game, I play the role of Eneko Farrell, a distinguished professor of science passionate about ancient history, who takes a team of his peers into Patagonia, South America in 1934, seeking evidence of an old, almost forgotten legend. As they will soon discover, not everything goes as planned, as the city hides a horrifying secret.

For this role I was required to convey a sense of dread an urgency taking hold of an otherwise calm and accomplished man. I will develop the character further when I reprise the role in the upcoming Hidden: Untold. Below is a sample of my work in the finished product.

I have several roles in the upcoming Skywind, part of the extremely popular Elder Scrolls Renewal Project. Playing characters of the native "Dunmer" (Dark Elf) race, I was required to deliver my lines in a gravelly, smoke-stained tone. This was a great challenge that I was more than happy to take on. Below are samples of my work, including test footage showing how my voice will sound in the game. Here you can find a PC Gamer article in which my voice acting for the character "Baladas" is featured.

World's Fair is a short film that uses a combination of still images and moving footage to create an entirely unique horror setting. As well as writing and directing, I play the role of John White, a well-travelled man who finds himself imprisoned in an unknown location without explanation. With conventional methods of escape seemingly impossible, John must board a bizarre Ferris wheel that will take him on a ride through his darkest, most private, and most painful memories. Only by confronting his past can he hope to escape the horrors of his present.

This film is highly recommended for fans of abstract horror movies, such as the work of Lynch or Cronenberg. It contains scenes of violence, profanity, disturbing imagery and brief nudity, and is therefore suitable for adults only. The entire movie is provided below via Youtube (1080p Fullscreen mode is recommended for optimal viewing).
