I am a very experienced voice actor with over 25 years experience and have appeared in leading roles in some of the most beloved children's animated series. I have a home studio and ISDN facility and use audacity software. I can record at home or in the studio. If you would like to hire me for a project, go to my contacts page. Here is a small selection of my work.

Recorded in 2022 and broadcast on CBeebies channel, this acclaimed 26-part animation series follows the adventures of Pinocchio and his eccentric collection of friends and enemies.

Cricket 

Jiminy Cricket is not a toy but a real cricket to which the Blue Fairy has entrusted the task of keeping an eye on Pinocchio and his friends during her absence. Comically fearful and apprehensive, terrified by the outside world that Pinocchio likes so much, with whom he is a real grouch, the Cricket will inevitably follow the two protagonists in their daily adventures.

Master

Cherry 

A rogue businessman and the arch-enemy of Gepetto. Master Cherry's business schemes usually come back to bite him and Joe modelled the voice of this bumbling tycoon on Lord Alan Sugar.

Candlewick

Candlewick is a storyteller child, he is not bad but he does everything to be accepted by his companions ... and he does it in the wrong way by trying to impose himself. Unruly, his attitude hides a fragile and insecure character. Pinocchio is a true friend for him, even if he is not the ideal adventure companion for Pinocchio ... when the two are together, there is never a shortage of trouble! Candlewick knows that with Pinocchio there is always fun and is ready to follow him everywhere. A cheeky cockney!

The Cat

The Cat and the Fox are crafty, a pair of rogues who live day to day convinced that they are moving in a world populated by chickens to pluck. The Cat and the Fox are adventurers, lazy and ambitious with the dream of a comfortable life made of idleness, wealth and no fatigue. This pushes them to the continuous, feverish search for an easy deal, a naive one to rob or, better still, a treasure to recover.

Casimir

A world weary baboon from Newcastle, Casimir is the put upon assistant to the magician Mangiufuoco. He is often involved in numerous scrapes and is invariably given the worst jobs to do resulting in his less than sunny demeanour.

Captain

Sweetbeard

Freeda's father and captain of a motley crew of sailors on his own galleon. Well meaning, naive and with pretensions of grandeur, he's a bit of a bumbling idiot with a heart of gold.
