"Versatile voice actor with over a decade of A-list experience"

Let me bring your message to life!
It's been my goal to broaden the use of my voice so I can provide clients virtually always with the tone and sound they seek. Growing up in a trilingual environment a had a strong fascination for pronunciation and voices. It allowed me to detect the smallest variations in tone, melody and rhythm. Nowadays I stil often find myself practising accents or imitations of all sorts, in Dutch and English.

Naturally I have middle age sounding voice with a nice crispy low and combined with energetic higher tones. I'm often booked by banks and other financial institutions, indulgent food type brands, manly brands such as cars and underwear, but I'm also asked for narration.

I hope to have clients benefit from my 15 years experience as a professional voice helping to find the right tone, even if they their selfs aren't sure what they are looking for yet.

 Ausbildung

As an actor I played in theater and short films. I was trained by two well known tv and film actors. Besides this I worked in radio as a presenter and as a film director myself for a long time giving me the experience and understanding how to attain what's from my actors and perform myself when sitting on the other end of the glass.
