DIY + Being The Change...


Voice. Mic. Headphones.…as a voice artist, these are essential tools for the job. And it feels great using them to promote an uplifting cause. So, I was very happy to voice an instore radio promo to highlight B&Q’s work with Shelter​. They’re collaborating to improve the lives of thousands of people through practical DIY and home improvement help, and funding of frontline services. And, as part of my Ethical Voice policy, 50% of my voiceover fee will be donated to Shelter too. xoxo #diy #bethechangešŸŒŽ

...Skills Development Scotland



Last week, I voiced a couple of radio ads for Skills Development Scotland and it started me thinking about how I started out, back in the day…
Straight out of school, I got my foot in the studio door with support from Skillseekers Allowance and Job Enterprise Training - Broadcasting; and ma and pa who spent many Saturday nights driving me the ‘lang scots miles’ to Speysound Radio in Aviemore; and of course, generous mentors, employers and collaborators.
As the years have reeled by, I’ve learned that behind every lucky break or dream-come-true, there are always others helping to make it possible. And that’s always worth remembering.
So, for the record, T H A N K Y O U.

...Universal Basic Income



The concept of a Basic Citizens Income hashtagis gaining traction around the world - even amongst candidates for the US presidential elections in 2020! Interested in learning more? This is my hashtag#turnbacktuesday to the hashtagvoiceover I did for movingdocs.org (with Ben Kampas) - a promo video for their ‘Free Lunch Society’ documentary. It’s about the benefits of this evolutionary idea and you can see the promo at https://bit.ly/2UwScXo Also, check out The Independent’s article about Andrew Yang, hashtagthe Democrat and entrepreneur entering the race to replace Trump as US president in 2020.
