My Voice Experience
From voicing 'Tell Me A Story' radio plays for Australian Broadcasting Corporation in the 1980's as a teenager to playing a Rhinoceros Beetle in a forthcoming children's cartoon series, my voice over career is typically diverse and a key area of my expertise. A professionally trained actress (Victorian College of the Arts, Melbourne, Australia), I have worked consistently in the past twenty years predominantly in retail reads for television and radio for both metro and regional markets. Increasingly I have been employed to voice narration for documentaries (ABC TV's Compass program - 'Bali High Wedding', 2011), online environmental advocacy campaigns and as a broadcaster with Australian Broadcasting Corporation. Whilst living in Japan (1999-2001) I was employed by Nintendo to provide voice tracks for video games destined for the North American video market and have provided character voices for comedy series for Austereo and a forthcoming international cartoon series. Variety is the spice of life!
