My Voice Experience

Albeit unknowingly, I was bred to do voiceover work. As a little girl growing up in Caracas, Venezuela my dear mother would ask me to read her my schoolwork in all the different dialects I had mastered (I suppose in an effort to keep my attention on my studies.)
I became obsessed with learning new voices and building characters; honing my skills as an improviser and a performer.

During high school and university, I performed in several musicals and went as far as writing and recording my own original work.

I then took my vast portfolio of characters with me on tour with the Richmond Shakespeare Festival and then to Lions Den Studios in Richmond, VA where I recorded several audio books under the careful direction of Darryl Cheek. During my tenure there as a grateful VoiceOver Actor, I wrote, produced and performed several Spanish radio spots for my own real estate business. At that time, I was also the news anchor for a local Spanish television station in Richmond, VA.

Most recently, I have two audiobooks available for sale in the Audible marketplace and have recorded several episodes for the animated series Mr. Pickles on Adult Swim.
