Smooth and resonant. I can slide into a very gravelly, overstated intense film trailer voice, or give a lighter, more matter-of-fact reading.

I have come from an acting background and have developed my voice talent through a number of plays and film and animation projects.

Worked for many years as a sound engineer, for live music around the pubs and in a recording setting and for film, and have worked in sound design for film.

I have been involved in a number of recordings of fairy tales, as several character voices and as narrator.

I produced a series of station ID's for radio station 3RRR, providing the voiceover, music and effects.
I've recently secured several jobs (including the recordings titled "Abbot" and "Puma Mobium" in the demos here.).



I'm currently studying for a Diploma of Interactive Digital Media, at Kangan TAFE, Broadmeadows.
