Inspired political satire - helping South African's to take themselves less seriously
"if you can laugh about it, you can survive it" Bill cosby

I have over 18 years professional experience as a performing artist.

My acting credits include 3 years in the popular South African soap opera - “Isidingo” where I played one of the leads, Elise Buller; numerous leads in stage productions around Southern Africa and also a few smaller parts in some international films. My voice talents have been featured leads in few local animation series, many commercials and currently on the show ZAnews with numerous impressions, including Lady Gaga & Premier Helen Zille.

I love to be challenged, especially animation characters, accents and the nuances that make them unique.
Give me a shout and let me create the most appropriate voice for your project / product.
