My Voice Experience

- The first voice over jobs I did were in Sao Paulo, Brazil for English-teaching companies that needed native English speakers to record for their ESL audiobooks. I was a natural in the studio and always enjoyed recording and felt extremely confident trying out new characters thrown at me.

- I also did several ADR projects in Brazil but did not have any formal training for them. It was always just a learn-on-the-fly kind of experience but thankfully I was good enough to keep getting called back for more projects during the 6 years I lived in Brazil.

- Since moving to NYC in 2011 I've done several projects for ESL audiobooks at John Marshall Media. I specialize in Brazilian Portuguese accent and was good enough for a clip of mine to be displayed on John Marshall Media's website under South/Latin American accents.

My Training

- One of the lead roles in High School production of Shakespeare's As You Like It,

- Numerous character roles for ESL audiobooks in Sao Paulo, Brazil (where I received hands-on training for voice-acting)

Additional Skills

I can say almost any word backwards immediately upon seeing/hearing it. I used to practice saying words backwards on road trips from signs I would see along the highway and became increasingly good at it. I never thought it was that big a deal until my family & friends kept asking me to perform for them and would always remark how incredible it was I could do it. I became curious and did a bit of research to see if it was truly a phenomenon. From what I discovered it is very uncommon and even has scientists baffled as to how it occurs.
