After just 6 weeks at University, I took on my first supporting role: performing the final act during Hustings - entertainment which was the culmination of the student Raise And Give (RAG) Week. It was a fun week of pranks and processions whose purpose was to raise money for charity. My new friend had written a clever take on the President of the Student Union, mimicking her manner with witty copy. Our skit was a mock SU meeting. Not Cambridge Footlights, but it was my first public performance.
"Trish was a pleasure to work with. She provided an inspiring read with professional-level audio, was timely in her communication, and always open to notes and feedback. Would certainly hire again."
Uni led to IBM, where I was assisting the automation of local and overseas banks based in the City of London. From there, it was on to America, where three days after landing in NY, I was working as an IT consultant. I discovered my home was here in the city that never sleeps. I co-authored books on the latest systems development techniques at the time, now called reverse engineering, and built a training and consulting company with my co-author. Nowadays, I'm using my voice to promote, narrate, and educate in my native British RP* accent!

"Trish's voice was absolutely perfect for what we were looking for. Very quick, articulate, and professional."
