Service Description

Great experience in 'sync reading', meaning that the original (English, German or French) voice is on my headphones and I read and speak the Dutch translation along.
What I consider to be one of my best qualities is the ability to speak fast without sounding rushed. Quite convenient since a Dutch translation is usually longer than the original script.
I always succeed in 'making it fit'. Either by speaking faster, adapting the script or by digital manipulation afterwards.

In my studio I do a lot of voice recordings with other voice talents. Keeping my technical and directional skills up to date.

Experience

Main line of international work is corporate, instructional/educational and presentations. Brands that used my voice include: Burger King, Bruynzeel, Consumentenbond, Canon, Continental Airlines, DHL, Dutch Government, Google, Kenteq, LyondellBasell, TomTom.

The shortest script I ever recorded contained only 1 word (and it was also one of the toughest of them all). The longest script I recorded contained over 50,000 words.

Education

Started as a singer, guitarist and keyboard player.
Studied musical composition at the Conservatory of Utrecht (High School of the Arts).
Worked as a recording engineer and voice director in a post production studio for 8 years.

Decided to concentrate on voice work from the third time a voice talent who was behind the microphone said to me: "Man, you should be in my chair".

Composing music is still something I do in my free time. Beyond doubt the best way to keep the ears in shape. And believe me: for a voice talent good ears are even more important than a good voice.
