...Stephen Hawking

For millions of years, mankind lived just like the animals. 
Then something happened which unleashed the power of our imagination. 
We learned to talk and we learned to listen. 
Speech has allowed the communication of ideas, enabling human beings to work together to build the impossible. 
Mankind’s greatest achievements have come about by talking, and its greatest failures by not talking. It doesn’t have to be like this. 
Our greatest hopes could become reality in the future. 
With the technology at our disposal, the possibilities are unbounded. 
All we need to do is make sure we keep talking.” 
– Stephen Hawking, 8/3/1942 to 14/3/2018

...Marie Curie

This Valentines Day, I’m especially feeling the love for Marie Curie - Care And Support Through Terminal Illness. Earlier today, I was honoured to voice their upcoming radio campaign, airing in Scotland soon. As part of my ethical policy,  I’ll be donating 50% of my fee after expenses back to this important charity. You can discover more about Marie Curie - and donate - via the website.
If you’d like to book me for a voiceover session, find out more via
“You cannot hope to build a better world without improving the individuals. To that end each of us must work for his own improvement, and at the same time share a general responsibility for all humanity, our particular duty being to aid those to whom we think we can be most useful.” 
- Marie Curie

Free Lunch Society (Basic Citizens Income Explainer)

I'm so delighted to share the explainer video I recently voiced to highlight ’Free Lunch Society’, a film about Basic Citizens Income, created by Moving Docs. The explainer was produced by Ben at Film & Campaign

Basic Citizens Income is a concept I love - so doing my job was even more of a pleasure than usual! Also, since the project was not-for-profit and aligned perfectly with my Ethical Voice policy, it benefited from 50% reduced rates. If you'd like to find out more, go to

Free Lunch Society - thanks again for involving me in such an exciting, progressive campaign.
