I have worked as a professional simultaneous interpreter for, on and off, more than 30 years: over the same period, I have worked with a professional repertory company in the UK, trained in the UK as a presentation and media handling skills tutor, acted in film and TV in South Africa as well as having worked in current affairs broadcasting, using English, French, German, Spanish and Dutch.

I devised, wrote and voiced over the animation, “Smart Speaking at International Meetings” by Calliope Interpreters. www.calliope-interpreters.org This short video is being used extensively by major international organisations such as the EU, UN, and NATO among others. I devised wrote and voiced over the animation, “Let Them Hear You” for the International Association of Conference Interpreters (aiic) http://aiic.net/why. The animation has been translated into several languages. I have also produced numerous voice-overs for e-learning, documentary, game trailers as well as corporate clients.

For 4 years from 1985 to 1989, I travelled large tracts of the world on my motorbike, including Africa, S America, North America, Canada, New Zealand, Australia and South East Asia. I sailed across the Atlantic by yacht and worked my passage as a supernumerary on a container ship between the United States and New Zealand. It may not sound like a job to you, however there is no doubt that it was, and is, part of my life. You can see what things looked like if you click on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TPF5vc5qd2Y

I combine the talents of a professional language communicator (simultaneous interpreter) with those of a stage, screen and film actor, broadcaster and narrator, presentation and media handling skills tutor.
