Should I Write a Travel Blog?

Should I Write a Travel Blog?

Before leaving Plymouth and beginning the life of a nomad, I asked myself on many occasions: “Should I write a travel blog?” I had every intention of doing so, as well as creating a travel-related podcast. Two of my friends allowed me to use them as a sounding board and joined me in long discussions over what it would involve, what I should cover, how I would monetise it. I even bought the domain, set up hosting, and created the bare…

Hello, It’s Me…

Hello, It’s Me…

As I sit here enjoying a warm Spanish evening on the terrace of a beautiful home I’m paying nothing to live in, with Puerto Banus and the Mediterranean in the distance, I wonder how I can condense the changes that have taken place in my life over the past few years, leading me to this point in time, into a single blog post. The honest answer is…I can’t! So here are the Cliff notes: July 2014: House Sold Along with…

Training Video Voiceover – How to Wrap Nails

Training Video Voiceover – How to Wrap Nails

I was thinking about some of the voiceover jobs I’ve recorded over the past 10+ years and started searching to see whether some of them were available on YouTube (obviously many things I do are internal business audio, telephone audio etc. so never make it to a public video site). However, I found this training video I recorded a few years ago for Rebel Nails. I remember soon after recording it that my sister called and asked me about it….

My New Pink Headphones

My New Pink Headphones

I use headphones a lot in my business…I use them when I’m voicing, I use them for editing audio, I use them when I’m making screencapture videos and podcasts, and naturally I use them for listening to videos and audio online. For a long time my main set of headphones at home have been a big pair of Sony MDR-XD200, which aren’t expensive but have great sound quality and are comfortable to wear for long periods of time. But, I swap…

Buzzwords Buzzkill

Note: I wrote this post over a week ago and have been thinking about writing it for ages. I finally decided that I’d publish it on my personal blog so if I’m going to take flak for it, I’ll take it as me and not under the heading of one of my businesses I have a gripe. It’s been bugging me for the past few weeks and I’ve even had one or two rants to friends about it. Before I…

uDraw Game Tablet for the Wii Voiceover

uDraw Game Tablet for the Wii Voiceover

I’d love to say that I record national TV ads every week, but unfortunately it just ain’t so. Which means I’m pretty excited about my new uDraw Game Tablet for the Wii voiceover for UK TV. It came out today so naturally I have already found a version on YouTube. It seems that my voice is also easily recognisable (not always the case) and I have already had a number of friends contact me to see if the voice on…
