I am an actor and voice and speech coach. I delved deeper into the possibilities of utilizing and honing the human voice when I encountered obstacles related to my own voice during my journey as a professional actor. Specifically, due to feedback I received in my early years on stage, I held the belief that my voice was too weak and soft. In my quest to improve the audibility of my voice, I dedicated years to studying and exploring the realm of voice alongside my acting career, eventually earning a doctoral degree in the field. What initially appeared as a brief path to self-improvement transformed into a long and exhilarating journey that continues to this day. Discovering and expressing my OWN VOICE while embracing my authentic self has been a demanding, yet an enlightening process. Alongside my studies, I have been sharing my expertise in voice, speech, and communication for nearly a decade. I can confidently state that there are often multiple reasons why a speaker may not be heard, and it is rarely solely a matter of volume.
I have imparted voice and speech technique to aspiring actors at the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre, Department of Performing Arts, as well as to aspiring singers at the MUBA. I have collaborated with coaches, entrepreneurs, radio hosts, educators, writers, and professionals from diverse fields, guiding them in discovering their OWN authentic voice.
