My Voice Experience

I have been voicing ads for about 8 years

I advertise for most every advertising agency / corporate company in Trinidad.
I have written and voiced complete ads.

Clients chose either a voice their hear and love constantly or hardly choose a voice that is often heard... The trick is to try different all the time and re-do as many times that it takes.

My Training

I am the former Business Manager of the Trinidad Theatre Workshop and artistic / creative director for st kitts.

I trained in Theatre at Necessary Arts School and the Trinidad Theatre Workshop.

Broadcasting: Announcers' Broadcast Academy 1996
The Institute of Broadcasting Careers - 1997

I have done many acting stints as well as local plays on stage and short film.
announcing, Writing, voice overs, Playwriting,
Conceptual events writing and directing,
drama faciltator to children between the ages of 8-16.. also written and directed for them and adults.

My Studio Equipment

I do not have my own studio nor do i know how to operate the equipment.


I can write, direct and voice commercials and come up with concepts that sell.

Additional Skills

I am very flexible...
I am passionate about using my voice to make a positve impact. My dream is to do an avatar or animation voice over!!
I am not intimidated nor do i hold myself back from getting the job done.

At the end of the day, the client has a vision for their company... And i always feel it is my duty to make their vision come through by giving that to them... As well as throwing in my input.. If it works it works, if it doesn't, i could take the criticism... Constructive criticism is the best education one can receive.
