THE DUTCH CONNECTION:
A seasoned Commercial Voiceover artist and Corporate Presenter for Ricoh, B.V. Netherlands, Adriane also joined the on-air news team as English News Presenter for Radio Nederland Wereld Omroep for two years.
For four years Adriane played a 16th century amalgam of the Dutch Queens Wilhelmina & Juliana at Huis Ten Bosch, Nagasaki Holland Village in Japan. Adriane’s entree to learning Holland’s rich history began with mastering basic Dutch phrases and studying historic figures from The Netherlands while performing in a resort dedicated to celebrating the Dutch & Japanese cultures.
Now a resident of Holland, Adriane brings her combined experience of vocal performance and knowledge of the Dutch language to provide a unique ability to relate to the native Dutch speaker/singer who wishes to hone their English pronunciation skills.
It is Adriane’s greatest wish to contribute to the Dutch community that has embraced her by entertaining, teaching, and providing personal coaching to those seeking to engage in authentic English pronunciation.
