Okay! So I guess you came here for a blow-by-blow account of how Steve went from rather inauspicious beginnings as a tiny tot locking his mother out of their family home in London (true story, she had to have a local policeman help coax the barely walking-and-talking mini Steve into grabbing the house keys and popping them through the letterbox. "I knew then you were quite intelligent" – her words on retelling the story years later) to living–if not THE dream then A dream – in The City Of Angels aka Los Angeles?
In brief – and let's be brief because honestly who really has the time for a 'blow-by-blow'? – he finished high school; won a scholarship to a SMALL London drama school; worked a year and a half at an advertising firm to get the money to pay for the BIG London drama school; managed to then win a scholarship to said BIG drama school, and finally...
Wait for it...
Graduated with the most amount of agent offers the school had ever seen!
WHAAAAT?! I know! Right?! Not too shabby!
This then led to London's West End appearing in shows such as the world famous Mamma Mia! Performing for her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II (and *ahem* a worldwide television audience) at Buckingham Palace. Shooting commercials all over Europe and such far flung places as Africa, the Ukraine and the Middle East. Dancing in several Bollywood movies, yes Bollywood, India! Getting murdered by one of the silver screen's most iconic cult serial killers: Chucky The Killer Doll in Seed Of Chucky. AND sharing the small screen with the ever dapper Don Draper as a guest on AMC's hit show Mad Men. OH!!! ANNNNND! Amongst all that he moved from London to Los Angeles and embarked – sort of accidentally – on a voice-over career that took off so well he now works solely as a voice actor.
So there you have it! From tiny lock-own-mother-out-of-house tot to voicing everything from books to films to video games to animation to promos to commercials.
Actually pretty much anything you need a voice for he's done it at this stage and often from his home studio.
Now if after reading all this you are still here and feel so inclined, please do take a look around. Go on! Roll your cursor up to the headers at the top of the page and get as curious as you like.
There are plenty of samples in Voice. Audiobooks have their own page. Authors needing an audiobook producer can check out that tab (he runs a slick operation). Need coaching? It's up there. And if you'd like a peak at Steve's 'former' life in front of the camera (as opposed to his 'now' life behind the mic), check out Life On Camera and have a gander at his show reels. (Hint: you might catch Don Draper aka Jon Hamm there as well as Chucky doing what Chucky does best: murder.)
P.S. If you read all this, a big hearty thanks for swinging by; you're a diamond.
