My Voice Experience

I have spent 16 years being a freestyle MC (MC TALI) in the electronic dance industry. I am internationally known (and awarded) as the most prolific Female MC to come out of this genre, and spent 10 years living and working in the UK, as well as touring the world - With this job, I introduce all the DJs that are performing, and then free style (a form of 'Rapping') and sing over the DJs while they mix to thousands of people at a time. (Because of this I still have a slight British lilt at times and find it easy to voice in a British accent)
As I became Internationally successful in this genre, I did a lot of TV and Radio interviews which is where I first became familiar with speaking and presenting in this way.
From this, I was asked to come and voice some Radio stings for some of the DJs that had radio shows up on BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 1Xtra.
I voiced intros, ads, and stings for Fabio and Grooverider, Bailey, Crissy Criss and B Traits.
I was also commissioned to do some vocal stings as MC TALI for Activisions Highly successful video game 'DJ Hero'
I moved back to New Zealand in 2012 and through a friend I started doing some voice work for Auckland dance music station George FM, firstly voicing ads, then moving on to be given my own radio show (Saturday breakfast) and eventually being asked to become the corporate voice of the station in 2014.
I joined Johnson and Liard talent agency in 2015 and began voicing commercials for several high end brands including Samsung for radio, online and TVC (the S7 Curve, Samsung 'Addwash' Washing Machine) and Microsoft.
I was also asked to be the voice of the 'Vodafone NZ Music Awards' 2016. Since 2017 I have been freelance.
