The 2020 One Voice Awards nominees have been announced, and I'm proud to say that I've been nominated for the third year running! This year I'm nominated for Best Overall Performance in IVR/Telephony (the award I won in 2018) and also for UK Male Voiceover Artist of the Year

The awards have been postponed until September 19th - so wish me luck!

I record from my broadcast quality studio near Oxford, with fast turnaround times possible! I can also record via Source Connect, ISDN through ipDTL, CleanFeed, Skype or Zoom if you need a directed session.

My business podcast is available here as well as iTunes, Spotify and TuneIn.

If you're a business who'd like to feature on the podcast, just get in touch.

As a voiceover artist, 80% of my job is to add value to a brand on company videos, telephony and even as a live event announcer for conferences, company awards dinners or roadshows (the so-called "Voice of God"). Recently I've been the voice of events for Tesco, The Law Society, Skoda and The MS Society.

Learn more about Voice of God here.

I've voiced a wide range of characters for games and animations - from a happy cartoon bear to a cat commentator as well as a werewolf, an android and a pirate - plus I'm an award-winning Santa Claus voiceover! I also specialise in the 1940's newsreader style that you hear on classic Pathé newsreels, British Movietone News and old BBC archive. I can even add authentic vintage crackle!

Some of My Clients*


What My Clients are Saying

Mark is a highly professional voiceover artist with a warm, friendly voice and perfect one-take sight-reading abilities. It is always a pleasure to work with him.

Lizzie Knight

AP Entertainment

I work for a leading London agency in social media content, and our client is an international American household name in the fast food industry. We were looking for a VO artist who could play a warm British accent, and Mark absolutely nailed it! He was unbelievably fast at communicating with us, especially during pressurised times from the client, which really helped. The quality of his voice and recording is excellent, and I hope to work with him again in the future. Highly recommended!

Lee Leong

Good Relations

Mark's attention to detail, excellent creative writing/voicing is second to none. If I ever need to count on anyone to perform a thorough job as well as giving 110% to a project, Mark will be at the top of my list. Highly recommended!

James McWilliams

On-Air Supervisor, Disney Channels

Mark was a super-star and total professional. The job was turned around over the weekend. Mark also provided good feedback and input. I will be using him again and I recommend him to all.

Graham Reddie


We've turned to Mark for our e-learning voiceovers for quite a while and it has always been a sheer delight to work with him. Mark provides unerringly perfect narration, which arrives always on time (or even earlier!) and exactly to our requirements. While I don't give out recommendations easily, I would 100% recommend Mark's services to anyone, particularly if you find yourself working on a time-sensitive project.

Maija Perfiljeva

Relias Learning

Mark always sounds fresh, polished, incredibly well researched, witty and authoritative. Always in control and never one to shy from a challenge, he regularly makes the complicated appear and sound easy.

Adam Hardwick

Head of Presentation, BFBS Television

Mark was great, he provided a few options for different variations in the accent, and his reads were perfect. His turnaround and response was quick. I'd hire him again for sure.

Susan Harris

Fluent Studios

Mark is an amazing voiceover artist. We create a series of animations for Health and Safety on worksites. All our English voiceovers are done with Mark. He delivers a great quality voiceover each time with quick turn around times. He is simply amazing and you cannot go wrong with such an amazing artist.
