VOICE TALENT HAPPINESS

It’s a match made in heaven, my voice over studio and me. I’ve been a voice talent since 2011, and every day I go to work in my top-notch home studio with a huge smile on my face! Here’s how it all started.

My adventure began in the music industry. It was 2005, and I spent years as an MTV veejay interviewing world-renowned artists while reporting on international festivals, and taping my own TV shows.

After MTV I became a DJ at the famous Dutch radio station 3FM where I hosted “Bring It On!” What I learned during these inspiring years was that storytelling runs through my veins.

Fast forward to the end of 2020: it’s the year I invested in a state-of-the-art home studio, designed and built by the best of the best. It's in this studio that I infuse every script with passion, creating impactful and moving voice overs for clients from all over the world.

So, what do I sound like? Well, my clients say I have a very versatile, trustworthy voice that lends itself to all kinds of productions. More importantly, you can hear that I actually understand the target audience, making your message more meaningful to them.

Here’s the thing. A professional voice over doesn’t just read lines from a piece of paper. A good VO should have a natural, conversational flow, and that's what I am good at. As a member of your team I will tell your story as if it were my own. I’m quite sure you will like what we’ll create together. Don’t take my word for it, though!

The biggest international brand names are my clients:

Philips, Sony, Spotify, Heineken, MTV, Toyota, Renault, Shell, Kia, Vodafone, Peugeot, Andrélon, World Wildlife Fund, Liga, as well as Dutch clients such as Albert Heijn, ANWB, Nationale Nederlanden, Gamma, HUBO, Hema, Optimel, Kruidvat, Karwei, Kwantum, Jumbo, Rabobank, Friesland Campina, KPN, Flexa and ABN AMRO. People in the Netherlands (where I'm based) hear my voice almost every day, whether it’s on the radio or on TV.

Interested in working together? Send me a message and I'll get back to you today.

Cheers, Barbara
