Sophisticated, Warm, Good Character Voice
My voice has a clear, deep, and sophisticated sound for narrations, presentations, and electronic devices such as answering services or voicemail greetings. My vocal age range covers a broad spectrum from teen to middle-aged and even elderly. I also am capable of reading books or performing as a character for commercials, cartoons, and videogames with any number of dialects from North American English (Texas, New Mexico, Southern California, Brooklyn, Midwest--Chicago/Minnesota, Canadian, Maine), British English (Scottish, Irish, Cockney, Aristocratic English), and Australian English. My dialects also include speaking English with German, Portuguese, Italian, and Spanish (Mexico, Spain, Puerto Rico) accents.
I am a capable imitator when it comes to certain celebrity voices. Most recently I have been able to use my Kip imitation from "Napoleon Dynamite." I can also do such celebrity voices as Jack Nicholson, Katherine Hepburn, and more.
I am bilingual in English (North American--native) and Brazilian Portuguese (second language). I am capable of recording voiceovers in Brazilian Portuguese using accents from São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and the Northeast (Pernambuco, Bahia, Piauí). I am also proficient in speaking Portuguese using the Portugal accent. I can also read Spanish clearly and precisely with an authentic accent due to my bilingual skills and background.
My voice talent covers a broad range. Feel free to contact me for a sample.

My Voice Experience
I remember the first time I decided I was going to be involved in the performing arts using my voice. I was thirteen and testing my chords with the words of Oscar Wilde.
