WORK

Voice overs

 I love translating my love for language and communication through different mediums. You can book me for a Dutch or English (US) voice over for your creative, corporate and commercial projects. As a poet & spoken word artist, I can add a rhythmic and storytelling touch to help translate your vision, and make stylistic suggestions where wanted. Find some of my work below:

Companies I’ve worked with include Timberland EU, Netherlands Forensic Institue (NFI), Amsterdamse Poort (CBRE), Justdiggit, Zalando, Loods 5 and Wavemaker. I’ve also done voice overs for films, and featured on music.

Poetry

For manifestation of the spirit, for the unification of my people and as a call to love, righteousness and introspection, I’m a soul(ful)poet out of necessity. A reflection of me, my poetry speaks on the unspoken, sensual and sensitive, the uplifting and the invisible. A well-spoken, outspoken, black womxn in a tumultuous world, my poetry functions as an extension of me; an extension that allows me to operate as a messenger.

So far, I’ve performed at many poetry nights, festivals and other cultural events in The Netherlands and abroad. I have spoken on Dutch platforms such as Woorden Worden Zinnen, Soul Food Poetry, Word Up, Bijlmer Klassiek, and Hamburg based Formation Now**, and have been on stages such as Paradiso, de Uitmarkt Amsterdam, Stedelijk Museum, Melkweg, deBalie, Bijlmerparktheater and Pakhuis de Zwijger.

About

I’m an expressionst and messenger at heart, with a fire for people and empowerment. Anything that allows me to give life to those things, anything meaningful that excites me, I welcome with both hands. And so I always look for growth and new adventures.

Next to my work as a poet and a voice actor, I use my voice and passion for people & empowerment in other creative ways. I’m also a teacher at children’s after school programs, and a host and moderator for cultural events.

In October 2018, I co-founded the Amsterdam based cultural & creative platform We The People, hosting & organizing poetry nights and other cultural projects of my own.

During the pandemic of 2021, I co-founded the online spoken word platform and production 2PHRASE.
