My Training

Being trained in acting, singing, dancing and writing at the cabaretacademy for five years in the Netherlands, I was perpared for all kinds of singing and speaking performances. I was also able to develop my abilities in on screen- and radiopresentation. During my studies, I participated in a masterclass given by Jaap Brand, a well known Dutch radio presenter. On my first asignments I worked together with a German college of mine, who is a very experianced male voice over, called Peter Sänger. He was literally the German voice. I was inspired by his tremendous competence, observed him precisely and adopted some of his techniques, before I developed my own skills. The singing career at the academy as wel as the cabaret performances with my own group, and many experiences as a performer of poams prepared me also to ‘play’ with a text.
My musicality towards language has made me a very good lipsynchroniser. Very quick, exact, professional and thinking along. For instance: how to rebuild a phrase to make it fit better. The musicality and flexibilty of interpretation as wel as good rhetorical skills distinguishes a professional voice over.
As a director of musicals and cabaretshows and a language coach for young german voice talents, I completet my ability of knowing what to do and how to reach the intention I’ve aimd at/for, with any kind of text.
Textinterpretation and rethorical skills I developed in private classes with Günther Wirt in Berlin, a highly recommended german coach for rhetorics.
At this time I’m a very experianced (mostly) German voice over with a working background of 14 years. My erxeperience is build on a large variety of voice asignments. I’m the favorite femal German voice over for commercials in the Netherlands and Belgium.
In 2002 I attended lectures of communication at the University of Amsterdam (VU), the VU, to enlarge my knowlege of how to influence commercial information, regarding the group of clients (potential market) and the most wanted approach depending on this market.
