Biography

Kia ora my name is Donogh. I've been in this business for nearly 40 years, so have, over the time, done voice work of varying types; voicing documentaries, the odd advertisement, a character for Power Rangers, radio plays and readings. Through my theatre and in particular when doing children's shows, I’ve been able to create many weird and wonderful voices. My voice is quite flexible and I love a challenge.
