OVERALL

It was at KBOO that I started producing audio pieces such as promos, documentaries and recorded interviews. At Bustos Media, I had the opportunity to put my knowledge in audio editing, copy writing and voice over to work in a very competitive industry.

Here, you’ll be able to see examples of my previous work as a voice over talent professional, audio producer and copy/script writer for commercial spots.

From an early age, I was exposed to live radio, and immediately fell in love with it. Ever since I first stepped into a studio I became intrigued to learn the ins and outs of the Mass Media Communications industry. Years later, I studied Journalism and Communications and began a professional career in Radio that has given me the opportunity to acquire hands on experience in audio production, on air, promotions, marketing, management, programming, and most importantly, years and years of voice over expertise.

Given that I was born in Mexico and that Spanish is my native language, from the beginning of my career, I was inclined to work with Latino/Spanish Media.
