I can tell you all there is to know about the business: commercials, audio guides, radio plays, audio books, image films, unicorns and cannonballs, palaces and piers, trumpets, towers, and tenements, wide oceans full of tears, flag, rags, ferry boats, scimitars and scarves, every precious dream and vision, underneath the stars.

If you're interested in voiceover work and personal coaching, just send me a message.
I have been teaching acting and dynamic training and giving workshops and individual coaching for speaking in front of the microphone for years.
For me, the basis for a good, versatile, interesting voice remains - just as in theatre - the body.
The voice does not act on its own. The proximity of the microphone may suggest an intimate, perhaps even passive speaking situation, but here, too, physical commitment and awareness are required. As on stage or in front of the camera, we can make use of acting basics at the microphone: Breath support, bundling, resonance.
A spoken text demands similar attention. We have to convey meaning and content vocally and give it a direction, otherwise the recording comes across as empty, artificial or unnatural and reaches no one.
Only in the interaction of these aspects can natural speaking be achieved - credible, convincing and honest.
The workshops and the individual coaching are dedicated to these aspects with the help of individually tailored exercises. The aim is to harmonise voice, body and text.
Together with the agency speaker-search, we have developed concrete offers:
