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 and Yarra Valley Dairy.
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.
