My Voice Experience

I've worked for Algarve Travel TV For the last three years. I began by researching things such as radical sports, winemaking, city tours, best beaches, best restaurants and so on. I wrote the narratives for each mini documentary, and I also presented and voiced the radical sports programmes. I've also voice private adverts that companies comissioned from us.
