Highlights

I have a warm, friendly, outgoing personality which one can definitely hear in the way I speak. I'm South African, but I've inherited aspects of my dad's very proper English accent, so my voice can best be described as 'anglicised'. This type of voice though is very popular here in South Africa, and probably accounts for a third of all TV and Radio ads, most continuity presenting and is very popular for narration. I'm a very good actor, very versatile, and I'm mostly hired for plays that need a small cast to play multiple characters. Similarly, I find it easy to use my voice to create memorable characters, cartoon'ish and/or believable.

Experience

I'm a trained actor, working professionally in Cape Town since 1999. I've performed in many plays, a few short films, and starred in dozens of tv commercials.
My passion, though, is voice acting.

In 2007 I became a regular voice presenter for a local magazine television show called 'Top Travel'. I've since recorded many spots for radio, tv, and web-based commercials, and I have a few regular clients, mainly book publishers (Maskew Miller Longman) and Elearning websites (Evoke IT).

Credentials

Education

I graduated with a Performer's Diploma in Speech and Drama from UCT (University of Cape Town) in 1999, and have been working as a professional actor since.

I've been nominated twice for theatre acting awards.

I divide my time between acting, studio directing in the international commercials industry here. and teaching at ACTcapetown film acting academy.
