My voice is rich, warm and authoritative, calm, clear and friendly - but you're the client! You tell me what you want and I can deliver! I have done all manner of VOs for television and radio ads, luxury brands, online explainers, training videos, pharmaceuticals, and tech multinationals.

A former radio presenter and newsreader on 2WS, 2UE and 2GB in Sydney, Australia, and a former TV sports journalist, I have been doing voice work for more than 20 years. I have voiced ads and content for brands including Oral B, Samsung, Veuve Clicquot, AAMI, Transurban, BWS, Phil Gilbert Motor Group, Novartis Pharmaceuticals, Seafarms Group, Unisys, Westpac, Scentre Group, Jones Lang LaSalle, Yarra Valley Dairy and plenty more.

I am also a regular VO on the ABC's Media Watch.

My years in radio mean I understand how to interpret your script and I can deliver your voice track quickly and professionally, recorded and edited in my home studio.

A deep and warm voice with a rich, authoritative tone, I can produce a range of vocal styles to suit any project.



I'm a graduate of the Australian Film, Television and Radio School, completing their highly competitive full-time Commercial Radio Broadcasting Course in 1996.

I also have a Bachelor of Business (Marketing) and a Master of Strategic Public Relations (with Merit) so I understand how important your brand is to your business. As a former media operative on both sides of the fence, I also know how vital it is for your messaging to be clear and unambiguous.

Service Description

I’ve booked and worked with Rowan for a number of clients and he always delivers. Easy to direct, Rowan produces excellent work in double quick time. Our clients are amazed at his professionalism and efficiency.

Joe Lewis – King Sound Studios

Few VOs produce work to such a high standard so quickly. Rowan has a great understanding of how a script should be delivered while also ensuring the client gets what they want. He is a pleasure to work with – he just ‘gets it’.

Graeme Thomas – Igloo Media

We used Rowan for a spot for a high-profile, luxury brand. He came into the studio and gave us exactly what we wanted in a matter of minutes. I’m happy to endorse Rowan and look forward to working with him again.

Andrew Seaton – Mint Films

I’ve used Rowan for a number of jobs and he is always flexible, reliable and professional. As well as a terrific voice, he has an incredible ability to interpret a script and put it down with a minimum of fuss.

Tim Street – ESP Productions

Rowan is terrific to work with and nothing is too much trouble. My clients love him and I’m happy to recommend him to anyone needing a quality VO.
