Benji Leal

Happy, offbeat, guy next door, average joe.

Voice Description

I have a medium-range speaking voice, typically tenor/baritone. I can speak in a myriad of ways to match the mood of the situation. I can be fun and cheesy in comical settings, mysterious and dark in suspenseful settings, heroic and noble in "superhuman" settings, or I can converse with you just like the "boy next door!" I also enjoy breaking into random international accents.
I am a versatile, flexible, and adaptable person!

I am Bilingual, fluently speaking both English and Spanish.

My Voice Experience

Though I am new to the voice-over business, I have been in the "voice talent" world for over 15 years. I worked at Psalms Recording Studio in Houston, Texas for a good number of those years, employed as a Background Vocalist, and Co-Producer on many local projects. I have worked in the Music Ministry field since the late 1990's. I have also performed in many theater productions, using my vocal talents to portray such characters as Mr. Paravicini in "The Mouse Trap."
I have been told countless times that I would have certainly found my "perfect niche" if I was to pursue a career in voice acting.

My Training

My father was a popular Christian disc jockey at KVMV 96.9 FM in my hometown of McAllen, Texas for many years. My late mother was a church pianist/choir director, who also played both the acoustic, electric, and Hawaiian guitars, accordion, as well as giving my older brother and me voice lessons. Both inspired me to succeed in becoming a voice talent.
I've worked happily for over 20 years in music and theater, pursuing my dream.

My Studio Equipment

I own a Samson Audio CO1U USB Studio Condenser Microphone.

Additional Skills

I am a tenor/baritone singer, and an amateur percussionist. I am also an Elementary Teacher, specialing in Language Arts, with a deep love for reading aloud to anyone who'll listen to me! :o)
