Chris is an award winning professional British voice actor, Image consultant and voice over coach.
Represented worldwide via numerous agents. His voice has been described as clear, confident, energetic, guy next door.
Chris has had a passion for everything audio and transmission related since the early age of 9 years old where he set up his own home radio station (broadcasting on 49mhz) Using a karaoke machine to feed audio into along with the microphone he was able to feed the live sound directly into a child's walkie-talkie. He states albeit he only ever had one listener this never stopped him from pushing on further with his desire.
Flash forward a few years to the age of 16 where he was awarded a lump sum from the Princes Trust Millennium awards where he set up a fully functioning RSL licensed Radio station in Whitley Bay, Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK for 31 days under the station name "Hitmix 49" where according to research covered over 60K listeners across the north east of england and were voted better than two of the major commercial radio station in the area at the time!
After the RSL period was over and no dry eye were left in the studio from Chris and his 15 volunteers the station was unfortunately closed down on December 23rd 2003. All equipment had to be donated to charity as part of the agreement conditions of receiving the grant.
Due to this Chris focused on voice overs and progressed further with skills acquisition and studying everything he could find.
With the early stages of voice over beginning, Chris quickly realised that there were not many resources that catered to the progression of Voice Acting and at the time the net was very clique, No one wanted to help unless they were paid ridiculous sums of money.
This is where he then started the Voice Artists United Networks - Which provides free Training, Resources, Support and Passive Casting Services as a Not-for-Profit Network of which now consists of over twenty six thousand members, friends, fans and followers across its extended network and has been written about in several books and blogs.
Along with voice acting Chris has specialised knowledge in IT: Linux servers, Web Hosting, Business Branding and Telecoms where he founded VAUNetworks.com in 2016 as a side venture to the Voice Artists United to provide high quality resources to its members and to the public to incorporate all these high quality services in one neat easy to use place.
Since its conception VAU Networks has surpassed all expectations and has went from strength to strength as it has flourished into a one stop shop for everything business related and continues to expand on a daily basis!
As a professional audio and tech geek Chris has a wide variety of knowledge and professionalism, so do feel free to contact him should you have any project or requirement that you would like advice or consultation with.
