ABOUT ME

Hi and welcome to my 'about' page.

I was born and raised in North London, England, UK.

From a very young age I was drawn to dance, drama, and singing.  
At 10 I won scholarships for both the Royal Ballet School and Arts Educational Schools.   
Before graduating at 18, I was offered a dance/singing contract that took me all over the world for the next 4 years.
I've never lost my wanderlust...

When I returned to the UK, I studied drama at The Actors Centre, and started working on commercials, films and TV shows. 
I also signed to 3 modelling agencies and did hundreds of photographic jobs, including all the Lottery campaign posters.

Singing completely took over in my 30’s - I was busy as a session singer and touring backing vocalist, and out of the blue found myself signed to Sony as a dance artist.  
Within weeks I was being driven all around the country, promoting singles and filming pop videos (that ended up on MTV and the huge screens in Top Shop, Oxford Street).

One day, in a session where I was providing vocals for a children's project for a worldwide brand, I was asked if I could also record the voices for a princess and a billy goat.
Looking back, my voiceover career started there and then - I was totally hooked. 

I'm inspired by creative people - animators, directors, artists, performers.…  
I grew up watching animation shows and films, musicals and 'making of' documentaries. I still love the journey this business takes me on.   
I'm grateful for the variety of work I experience as a singer, voice artist and actor, and the people I get to work with and learn from.   

Other than using my voice for good not evil, I love spending time with our children, (and directing them in the studio), fitness walking, doing yoga, dancing, song writing, watching anything involving David Attenborough, photography, meeting new people and fostering rescue puppies.

Before lockdown my other favourite things to do would be discovering great cafes in London, going to the cinema, travelling, staying in beautiful hotels, seeking out roof top swimming pools and stunning beaches, and having dinner parties where everyone ends up singing... 

One of the proudest moments in my voice career was recently winning Voice Artist Of The Year 2020 as well as Best Demo (which I self produced).

I've received 14 nominations at the One Voice Awards in 2018, 2019 and 2020.
Although it's true that the work is the reward, being recognised for your hard graft and dedication is very gratifying!

Wherever you are, whatever you're doing... have a great day.
Lisa
