My Voice Experience

My first voice over experiences were linked to my engineer and manager career in international companies : corporate presentations and tutorials for e-learning.
I used my voice to sell products and services all around the world, to manage and motivate teams, to animate seminars, and for corporate training sessions.

Now, as professional voice over talent, I have recorded for companies all over the world (Allianz, Atlas Copco, AXA Winthertur, BMW, British Telecom, Cargill, Cartoon Network, Dell, Fedex, Hilton, ITV.com, L'Oréal, Nestlé, Novartis, Oracle, Presonus, RATP, Recaro Seats, Rio Tinto, Samsung, Toyota, Weight Watchers, etc.). For several of them, I have furnished translation services from English or German to French.

Professional opera singer, I use to sing in the most intimate circles of chamber music, specially in German Lieder and French melody programs, very demanding for diction, and also in the wide areas of the operas houses or the théâtre Antique d'Orange.

I am singing teacher and organize numerous training sessions in singing and dramatic art.

As voice over singer, I have for example been hired by Turner / Cartoon Network for the sung promo spot of the Musical "Batman, the brave and the bold" which was requiring a top mix operatic and Musical bass voice.

Last but not least, I am sound engineer with a fully equiped home studio and I use to record regularly singers and voice over talents.

My Training

Besides an engineer degree (HEI High School, France) with specializations in computer science and acoustics, I have obtained a first prize of conservatory in singing, and since then had a training program in vocal pedagogy at the Rhône-Alpes Center of Voice.
