If you do feel the need for some guidance, you have come to the right place. This 16-part course can be taken by adult complete beginners to advanced students.

  • A handy cheat sheet to sum things up

By the end of this course you will feel completely capable technically and confident in your ability to appear on camera.

Voice Actor and Trainer

I am a bilingual native speaker of Afrikaans and have a very neutral English accent. I am also experienced in the British voice over industry, as I spent 8 years living and working in London before moving back to South Africa. I am now based in Centurion, Gauteng, working from my home recording studio.

My voice has been described as warm, earthy, sensual, clear and authoritative. It lends itself well to corporate scripts like IVR, medical narration, e-learning, telephony and videos for web.

I hold a Performing Arts Degree and love stretching my acting muscles in the booth. I also trained at The Actor’s centre and did an Advanced Acting for Radio course in London. I have also been teaching at a tertiary education institute in South Africa for 6 years.
