Voice Acting, to me, is one of the most rewarding jobs in the world. It allows me to be part of different worlds and imaginations.
As a lover of video games, anime, singing & audio books; voice acting is more than just a job, it’s a passion.
I have a small home studio which allows me to quickly send any audition pieces and voice reels if required. I also have a working relationship with Arpeggio Creative, a production company and recording studio.
If you are looking for a strong voice over role please contact me through social media or via the contact form on this site.
Thanks for listening.

I specialise in Video Game VO & Motion Capture, Recent games I have been involved in include: Steel Division Normandy 44, Catacombs 1: The Demon War, Virtual Army & Phantasmal : City of Darkness
I regularly record audio books for Audible, who have the worlds largest selection of titles. I have recorded a large range of books from video game guides (Destiny, Minecraft, Magic the Gathering & Pokemon Go) to history books, period drama & other non-fiction titles.
Animation brings the silver screen and voice actors together, I love seeing the animators craft an image that matches their perception of your voice.
On occasion, dialogue needs replacing in film or translated for dubbing in foreign films, this is a great challenge for any VA to emulate the performance that has already been captured.

26/09/18 “I truly lost myself in listening to this story and had to catch myself so I could pay attention to the narrator. JD Kelly did a superb job with this story and it’s characters.”
30/08/18 “I wasn’t sure I was going to like this audio book as I am an old Sherlock Holmes solid book fan.
The story was great and I’m so glad I listened to it! Holmes’ narration was great, and Watson was even better!
I hope this narrator, JD Kelly has or will narrate more Sherlock Holmes stories. I will check soon and I will definitely listen to them if they’re available, as soon as I can.”

04/04/18 “I listened to this story with my 8-year-old thinking that he would need some explanation with the bazaar and fantasy laced happenings in Lewis Carroll’s classic. However, he was soon enchanted by the job JD Kelly does with the narration, he didn’t interrupt the story a single time. Between Kelly’s natural accent, combined with the various character voices, it made for a delightful 2.5 hour listen”
