BIOGRAPHY

Growing up in the sun drenched Southern Vales of South Australia, Doug dreamed being a child star in California and spending quality time with Marcia Brady. He would have to settle for the High School Musical, Repertory Theatre and a stint at Adelaide’s Finders University Drama Centre, before the fledgling actor was deemed as being “.. just too tall darling”  by one of the city’s leading casting agents.But like all clever kids with a trade to fall back on, Doug drove his rusty Datsun to Melbourne seeking success as a musician. The legendary ARIA nominated power pop outfit “Icecream Hands” were formed in 1992 and still exist to this day.

At around the turn of the century, Doug cut his teeth on regional TV ads and learned a lot about irrigation and tractors after demanding that Prime TV in Ballarat let him in to their studio. Several demos later, Doug was rewarded with his first ‘proper’ Melbourne booking and after a few years wandering the mean streets of freelance city, was welcomed to the hearth of the RMK team.

Over the years Doug has developed a wide range of reads from ‘guy off the street’ to rapid fire retail. Doug delivers warm and friendly, hyped and energetic and reassuring natural reads across all areas of the voiceover landscape. Doug is the current voice of Foxtel’s Comedy Channel – a dream gig that lets him exercise his wide range of styles (and some characters too).

REVIEWS

  1. Doug is a pleasure to work with and always willing to go that extra length to ensure work is done well. Our clients have always been extremely satisfied & I would recommend him to anyone looking for a very experienced bright voice.

  2. Doug is as reliable as a VO comes. Doug works quickly with minimal direction and he’ll nail the read every time. But, he’s also a man of many talents. Recently I engaged Doug to produce a musical package for a client, who really didn’t know what they wanted. Doug was super keen to help us win the business, and his willingness to tweak, re-shape and re-imagine his initial demo meant the client got they wanted, and we were able to win the business. Wins all round.
