Cape Town, Western Cape, ZA
I have a naturally warm, outgoing personality which you can hear in my voice. Although I'm born and raised South African, my father is originally from England, so my accent can best be described as 'anglicised' South African. Fortunately this type of accent is very popular here at home and abroad. I'm a trained and working actor, and I'm often called upon to play humorous characters.

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.
However, my passion 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.
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 (directing children and adults auditioning for tv commercials/film/series),and I teach at ACTcapetown film academy.

I've never heard a bad thing about the work I produce, and often get praised for my natural intuition on cold readings and turnaround time. I'm dedicated to making the final product something you feel proud to show off, and I welcome direction and am happy to fix any issues.
