I tell stories.

I’m an Earphones Award-winning narrator. I’ve recorded more than 300 audiobooks and audio dramas — many of them bestsellers — with a client list that includes Audible, the BBC, Big Finish, Blackstone, Brilliance, Dreamscape, Hachette, HarperCollins, Hodder & Stoughton, Macmillan, Penguin Random House, Ukemi and others.

I was born in South Africa, in a valley Alan Paton called ‘lovely beyond any singing of it’. I grew up travelling, picking up a range of authentic dialects and languages along the way, eventually studying music and drama at the University of Cape Town. In South Africa, I worked in the theatre, touring the country with a small repertory company, as well as appearing on radio, TV and film.


I'm not an athlete. I wrote that sitting on the Eurostar, travelling back to London. My legs tingling, heavy with exhaustion; my arse feeling every click, clack, clickety-clack in the firmness of the standard class seat cushion; my hand shaking as I wrote the words, threading my fingers around my pen unconsciously, holding it like handlebar drops in my claw grip.

Identities - a response to Meir ben Elijah of Norwich

My grandfather was a sugar farmer in Natal, South Africa. Gandy was a big, bluff, confident man with a leather whip - called a sjambok - and a collection of wide-brimmed leather hats; he calmed wild horses and strode forward with the assurance of one with God on his side.

The Lab has been bustling for the past couple of weeks, getting ready for this weekend. IndigO2 has hosted some major events. It opened its doors in 2007, and it has seen some of the world's biggest acts: The Who, Prince and Penn & Teller.

We were sitting around in the office talking about philosophy. Yes, we are that cool where I work. 'What would happen if a philosopher sat around for 3,000 years?' asked Hugo. Well, apparently, he might come up with a solution to Wittgenstein's rule-following paradox. 'What's that?' you might ask. I did.

It's that time of year: Christianity takes a perfectly good pagan festival and rebrands it. Saturnalia was a festival of light, with an abundance of candles symbolizing the quest for knowledge and truth, celebrating the northern hemisphere's winter solstice: that point where the planet's axial tilt is furthest away from the sun.
