My Voice Experience

My Voice-Over career began on 1/4 inch reel to reel, doing commercials for radio, then being announcer for my World Music hour in Spanish and English. Working in an Animation studio I began doing scratch tracks for all types of characters, which I thoroughly enjoyed and dove into. Later my work as Sound Designer had me doing all sorts of projects from Narrative, to Audiobooks to Media Installations, to radio and t.v. spots. As my experience grew, my voice grew and being in the studio is one of my favorite places to be.
