True love it is, me and my studio. Everyday I work with a smile, making my clients happy. Because that's the best part of it, happy clients. I’m a professional voice-over artist since 2005, that’s why I always deliver a good story.

I’ve earned my credits in the Netherlands, where I’ve been heard daily on national TV and radio for many years. But I’ve also been active internationally. I'm fluent in Dutcha and Atlantic English. My voice is warm, natural and just a little bit husky. And I have my own professional studio.
