Smooth, Character Specialist, Spanish, English
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.
