I trained as a voice artist, radio and television presenter in South Africa some 27 years ago. I presented news on 5fm (South Africa's premier national radio station), and then hosted my own radio shows on community radio stations. I then co-hosted a variety of radio shows on SAfm (another national radio station) and on 702 (South Africa's top talk station). I have guest hosted a television show on CNBC Africa called The Media Show, and voiced many corporate videos. I currently present an online series called With or Without Sugar, and guest on SAfm with Ashraf Guarda on Sunday mornings.
Trained by The South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) - specifically by 5fm, as well as trained and mentored by The Broadcast Development Group under the personal mentorship of broadcasting doyen, Malcolm Russell.

My voice is professional, strong and convincing. Specifically in a business environment I bring a highly compelling tone. Being the Chief Executive of a leading, international brand development consultancy, I add my knowledge and understanding of business context to projects. Furthermore, my training and early career as a business and entertainment journalist means that I am highly articulate, and my pronunciations and enunciations are excellent. This adds great value to the piece of communication.
