Born in the USA and made in the UK, my naturally-neutral English accent has been used by major brands, game developers, eLearning providers and audiobook publishers all around the world.
After starting life as a classically trained singer, dancer and actor, I pursued a career in business, and spent the next 25 years working in the international financial markets, before ‘coming home’ to acting via voiceover.
My business career gave me the opportunity to live and work in over 75 countries and become proficient in four languages; French, German, Italian and of course, both British and American English – maybe that should count as five?
As a genuine commerce, trade and industry expert, I can deliver corporate, eLearning, documentary and non-fiction narration with confidence, insight and authority. While my performing arts background and talent for American and International accents, brings a natural and instinctive feel for melody, rhythm and timing to commercial copy, game characters and fiction narration.
I am deft at transforming my voice into anything from an endearing stay-at-home dad, trustworthy corporate spokesperson or edgy millennial, to a heroic wizard, cheery camp counsellor, menacing villain or even a plucky young heroine.
I revel in bringing your scripts to life with flair, finesse and truth, just like the projects I’ve voiced for Marriott International, IBM, DHL, National Geographic, Audible Studios, Hodder & Stoughton, Findaway Voices, Journalstone Publishing, Gamesys, THQ Nordic Games and COMCAST Games.

Craig Van Ness is quickly becoming one of my favorite narrators.
The narrator did an amazing job… His accents really gave each character their own voice and lent to bringing this story to life for me. He is a great storyteller.
It was great working with Craig, He’s highly professional, listens to and takes direction well. Establishing a context and connection to the audience seems to come naturally.
