    I obtained my degree in Performing Arts at the University of Pretoria, South Africa in 2000. I then promptly ran away to the UK, to further my training in Puppetry, physical theatre and performance in various genres. I spent 8 years working as an actress, voice artist and puppeteer in the UK, gaining experience in acting for film and television, creating and performing a one-woman show, amongst other puppetry projects. I have been in the voice over business for 15 years. I now work from my home recording studio, in South Africa, with numerous clients from across the world. I am also a Film lecturer in tertiary education, with 7 years teaching experience. I recently successfully completed a 3-year degree curriculum Screen Acting, which was accredited by the South African Council of Higher Education. I hope my combination of skills will serve you well.
