Born and raised in England, I spent the past two decades in the U.S. and am of South Asian blended heritage (Sri Lankan and Pakistani).
For the past 12 years I have worked as a voice actor. As an audiobook narrator I have narrated over 175 titles for major publishers and recently won an Earphones Award for The Last Garden in England which I co-narrated. I have a knack for accents and love Science Fiction & Fantasy, as well as YA and Romance. I am a proud member of SAG-AFTRA.
On my days off I love to paddle, hike or go whale watching. In the evenings I love to curl up with a good book, or play board games.
I'm a two-time Independent Audiobook Award nominee. In 2019 I was nominated for Best Female Narration. In 2020 I was nominated under the category of Best Fantasy. This year my narration of Alien: Into Charybdis was nominated for a SOVAS award for best Sci-Fi. Publishers I have narrated for include Simon & Schuster, Hachette, Harper, Tantor, Blackstone, PRH and Brilliance. I have also narrated for Realm.
Training and Workshops
I began my career recording documentary narrations for the Beverly Willis Foundation. Since then, I have provided non-broadcast narrations for clients such as Microsoft, Amazon, Wordpress and Electrolux. My voice can also be heard in various video games such as Nancy Drew: The Shattered Medallion, The Swapper, Infinifactory and Mount and Blade II.
