Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

Main accent is British, with or without a touch of South African. I can, of course, do a heavy South African accent, Afrikaner as well as African.
I'm also experienced in doing both Australian and New Zealand accents.
I have lots of experience with cartoons and have two distinct character voices.
In addition, I am an excellent narrator and have done more than a few audio recordings of short stories.

My Voice Experience

I spent 9 years as a professional actress, most of those supporting myself with voice-over work. I've done radio stories, adverts and promotions, television voice work, including dubbing of cartoons, telephone voice menu recordings, even a jingle or two.
Since moving to Europe I have done dubbing into English for various corporate image films, documentaries etc.

My Training

I studied acting at Pretoria Technikon in SA, and worked in the industry for 9 years thereafter.
I am also a trained English teacher and have worked with many students to improve their pronunciation, often utilizing recordings to improve their recall.

My Studio Equipment

Macbook Pro with Logic Express.
Samson CO3U mike.

Additional Skills

I am an excellent cold-reader and rarely have problems with any kind of script. I have the ability to color my voice with emotions, and take direction very well.
I've been teaching ESL for the last 5 years, so my linguistic knowledge is above average for a voice artist.
