Biography

I have a warm, friendly voice with lots of colour. Which is not to say I can’t pull out a harsh Chinese harangue or an entitled British drawl when required. Recently I gave an hour-long lecture at the end of which I received a standing ovation, so I guess I can be persuasive, too.  I’m also getting huge satisfaction now from being able to use my voice to narrate audiobooks for the Blind Foundation of New Zealand.
