Gema Vazquez

Smooth, Character Specialist, Spanish, English

Voice Description

My voice is warm and friendly for commercials. For narrations, my voice is smooth and has precise pronunciation, but can also deliver it with a commanding yet engaging tone. Character voices are my favorite because they are fun, creative and spontaneous.

Spanish is my native language but I learned English when I was 5. Growing up in Europe and South America, I gained a great affinity for accents of which my favorite is the Spaniard, Venezuelan and Cuban accents in Spanish. I can also deliver an upper class British, French and Italian accent in English. I have studied French and Italian and in Italy at least have been confused for an Italian when I spoke there.
