Voice Description

Recently submitted for both a Grammy Spoken Word Award and an Audie Award for my narration of audiobook 'My Race', I am a versatile voice artist thanks to my international acting and voice career. My voice can be described as warm, international, clear and energetic - I have extensive commercials experience on TV and radio. I can be smooth and professional when voicing presentations and documentaries. As a narrator I can be both exciting and engaging with a wide range of accent and character abilities. As the voice of Digital Satelite TV in Africa, I maintained a warm, clear and energetic voice persona. I have a special love of character voices too and have played many funny, bubbly children's character's, most famously as DottyWot on the award-winning The Wotwots. see www.thewotwots.com

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

I am adept at accents and have worked professionally in South African accent, New Zealand (Kiwi) accent, German accent, French accent, American (Mid Atlantic) accent and UK accents. Also Irish, Russian and Argentinian / South American. I can do most South African dialects including Afrikaans and Cape.
The characters I have played in these accents have ranged from clear and authoritative, such as the Sociologist character in the Academy Award nominated District 9, to energetic and bubbly kid's character Dottywot in the Parents Choice winning animated show The Wotwots. French accent voice characters tend to be sexy and enigmatic or innocent, young and fun. German accent voice characters are strong and direct. My UK accent voice lends itself well to professional, trustworthy, well-educated characters.
