Am also good at:
- Honeyed tone (for smarmy sales guy)
- Aggressive or raucous (stentorian)
- Booming or penetrating (loud, projecting)
- 80's/90's style Radio DJ
- Sing song

I'm an Australian speaker, trainer, MC, narrator, and more. Although I do some other accents, my depth is in a variety of Australian accents, whether for character, voiceover (radio or TVC), narration for audio books or corporate, plus a whole lot more.
A bit more history...
My platform experience started from the age of 7 (now in my 40's) - as a boy soprano in the Southern Cross Boy's Choir - and I continued my performance through acting and singing throughout school, then onto my first experiences MC'ing (emceeing) indoor and outdoor events and amateur radio in my 20's.
I started corporate training in the mid-1990's and spent significant time as an invited speaker to industry events, trade shows, and facilitating a large number of education programs (from hours to days) around the world (predominantly Asia Pacific).
I completed voice over/actor training (with John Higginson) at the National Theatre in Melbourne, Australia in 2001, then moved to the USA for work (Chicago area) and then back to Australia in the mid-2000's.
I subsequently left employment to start my own business; speaking, educating, emceeing, and now narrating, plus other voicing needs too.
