wry, guy next door, narrative, businesslike, warm,
Being involved in directing, coaching and producing voice over artists and reading all sorts of texts for numerous clients for more than 25 years, I can quickly adapt to whatever is needed for any particular job.
I can deliver a laid back presentation, a sexy and seducing one, warm and inviting, businesslike, very dynamic (DJ-type)or sound rather casual like a radio presenter or the man next door.
Being a journalist I know how to deal with texts.
Being a producer of audiovisual content I know what it takes to get a message across. Communication !
Being a musician I know how to deal with tone, rythm and pace.
Being a voice-coach and director I know how to respond to anyone who is directing me.
Having stated all my 'beings' I can imagine that you'd doubt them. In that case check the following sites :

I started my career in the (audio)visual communication industry in 1972.
In 1975 I founded the RBS Group of companies which is still active today.
Since 1989 I am creative director/owner of EuroVoice Internationale Voices Agency in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. As such I have direct access to approx. 2000
professional voice-over talents in more than 60 languages.
For more than 30 years I have been active in professional education for : audiovisual talents, pro-audio recording engineers
As a result of a wide range of expertise within the market of (audiovisual) communication and the advertising industry (RTV commercials) I am familiar with almost any (post)production aspect in these fields.
