Voice Description

My voice is characterized as deep,friendly,natural,rich,warm, smooth, authoritative, sexy, conversational and very versatile. I take direction very well and can go from casual guy-next-door to polished and professional on a dime. I'm 100% bilingual (Spanish/English) and I can also go from very sympathetic and caring to really fun and animated character voices in both languages. Comedic characters, evil characters, and singing characters are among my specialties! I'm an acomplished singer and actor and that gives me even more versatility. As a voice actor, directors say I have a "great sense of timing and a knack for being real and believable." I'm perfectly capable of doing English with a Spanish accent and vice versa.
