I can be serious, fun, sympathetic, professional. I go with the tone and nature of the job to be done. I've been doing vo/voc work since I was four years old and have done a bit of everything.

My Voice Experience
My very first VO job was when I was four years old. It was a one-liner for a San Antonio based grocer called HEB. I had to say "¿y los pollitos?" which literally means, "and the chickens?" It was a sale ad for whole chickens at Easter. Where this comes to play is that, 44 years later, I am the voice (P&I section) for HEB in Texas...once again! From then until now, I have done vo/voc for everything from chickens to shampoo, from non-profit campaigns to huge corporations. From narrating a story to instructing someone how to properly wash their hands in industrial spots. I have done the bilingual voice of a doll. She spoke and sang in both English and Spanish. I have done it all and am willing to try practically anything!
I used to host two shows when we lived in McAllen, Texas. One was called "Que Bonito McAllen" and the other one was a local cooking show.
I'll list some of the many companies I have done vo/voc work for:
McDonald's (national VOC)
Mazola (national VOC)
Furniture Factory Warehouse
City of San Antonio
Baptist Health System
VIA Metropolitan Transit
Among many others.
My training has mainly been experience. I was with an agent and one point and took several classes and attended several workshops.
I am a federally certified translator.
I am the lead singer in a band here in San Antonio called Kopia. We are an 80's cover band! Lots of fun!
My Studio Equipment
One of the local studios I use (Lost in Sound) has the following specific to VO work:
Pro Tools 8 LE with DV Toolkit II
Digidesign Digi 002 Rack interface with Black Lion Signature Mod
Avalon VT-737-SP channel strip with Babyface Mod
Presonus Eureka channel strip
Peluso P12 (C12 clone) condensor
Marshall MXL 2001 condensor
Apple Mac Pro Quad 2.26
Waves Platinum Bundle
Presonus Central Station
Event ASP-8 nearfields
There is a more exhaustive list at lostinsoundstudios.com And I frequently use a studio called The Living Room, which is a full service studio that has ISDN and phone patch options.
I have always had a "real" job, a 9-5 job not necessarily related to VO work, but it has always been my passion, dream and goal to pursue VO/VOC work full time.
If I am chosen for a job, I can promise that the client will NOT be disappointed. I am very versatile and follow direction well.
I am fluent in both English and Spanish WITHOUT any kind of accent whatsoever in either language.
I also sing and would love to do jingles for spots as well.
