Jack started as an actor in the UK theatre. He has since become recognised as a voice professional and has broadcast across South Africa, North America and Europe, the Middle East and parts of Asia. His unique trans-Atlantic sound has a global appeal, from radio and TV to documentaries and corporate AVs on display in the White House in Washington DC.

Jack's voice age ranges from 40 to 50 and has been described as clear, authoritative, gravitas, warm fireside, from neutral conversational to heavyweight epic.

As a recording engineer I work with Jack every month at Katalyst Studios, and what an absolute pleasure it is working with him. He's always early and well prepared, and willing to go the extra mile, apart from having a fabulous and versatile voice. I can definitely recommend him to anyone.
