Life so far...
Lu grew up in Cape Town, South Africa. She has lived almost 20 years in the United Kingdom of which eight years were spent running an independent TV company producing Natural History documentaries. Lu lived in New Mexico (USA) as a Rotary Exchange Student after completing high school in Cape Town and she spent two years exploring the beautiful mountains of Chamonix in the Haute Savoie, France.
Inspired by her experience whilst making TV documentaries and working with voice actors, Lu moved into the industry herself. Lu's background in TV and "being on the other side" has given her invaluable experience in working as a voice talent herself, bringing many hours of experience in fine-tuning the final audio dubs, to each voice over client project. She self-directs and brings expression, timing and pace to her projects, breathing them into life with great attention to detail.
After having worked as a consultant analyst and project manager in Information Technology (IT) previously, she's very comfortable with Audio Production and is meticulous about providing a final audio product that's clean and technically well produced.
Lu loves to sing, dance and perform. She's played prominent roles in amateur musicals and been in choirs since her school years, performing in The Cape Town Ladies Choir, City Academy Choir London and Chambelles, Chamonix. She is an avid reader and has a passion for conservation and the natural world. Many of her holidays were spent working or spending time with her friends at The Big Game Parks of Swaziland, which greatly inspired her.
Lu is a great traveler and loves meeting new people from different cultures. She's completed a number of marathons, loves snowboarding, hiking, climbing and swimming. She also enjoys photography and writing.
