I am comfortable with both upbeat and funky commercial or corporate work. As well as the warm & soothing tones of a narrative
I have a very versatile voice and the ability to accommodate various types of character voices & accents. I am from South Africa, though my accent is not strong, but can easily be turned on or off.
I have a back ground in musical theater so dramatisation comes easily adding flavour where necessary.
