My Voice Experience

I've been working in the "new media" arena since 2009, presenting professional, talk radio style podcasts that have become known as a benchmark for audio quality in their genre. My work in this area can be heard on the Plane Crazy Down Under Podcast, the Airplane Geeks Podcast, the Flight Time Radio Show and Aviation X'Tended.

I have also provided sweepers and public service announcements on Sun 'n Fun Radio in Florida, and provided air show commentary at major events in Australia.

Since entering the voice over industry, I have voiced many corporate videos, IVR messages, promotional videos, radio and television commercials.

My Training

My presentation styles and productions methods are largely self taught, and in 2012, I received professional training with legendary Australian voice over coach Gary Mac.

I have also attended a number of online workshops and seminars from Terry Daniel, Edge Studio and VoiceOverClub.

A life long talk radio enthusiast, and more recently a podcast & new media devotee, I have spent many years studying the styles of the best Australian, UK and American presenters. I have found the online video work of Leo Laporte (This Week In Tech Network) to be a great inspiration and training tool, and have been privileged to have spent time in his studios in California on two occasions.

As life is a journey of learning, I have found over the years that you can do just as well in many fields by observing and practicing, as you can by attending big institutions. This has been my journey, and it continues to fascinate me.
