Ad hoc voice-over courses since then.

 Expérience

I ran an outside broadcast news operation for CNN while being pelted by stones and teargas at a G7 summit in Prague!
Have broadcast from around the world including 4 years as a foreign correspondent for the BBC in Australia which required regular live and pre-recorded work for TV and Radio.

 Particularités

Running a production company, I can edit/master audio and video and manage on-location productions. Never leave without the story!
Of half German ancestry, my great grandfather was Dr. Willi Meinhardt, co-founder of Osram, so a keen interest in tech and engineering runs in the family.
