Voice Description

|| Website: www.voicebymaria.com || Phone: 646-820-1401 || voicebymaria@gmail.com ||

Hi! I'm the female voice you've been looking for! My voice is youthful, hip, energetic, conversational and on-trend - perfect to represent and speak to millennials and Generation X.

I am an award-winning voice actor and I'd love to bring your project to life! I was recently presented with the Voice Arts Award for Best Voiceover Performance in the e-Learning category.

I am a full-time professional and have been working in the industry for more than 15 years. I pride myself on being easy to work with, easy to direct, quick to respond and I make sure that you always get everything you want for your voiceover needs.

My voice is warm and friendly, with confidence and a smile. It can be professional, energetic, warm, quirky, upbeat, comedic, conversational and relatable as well as smooth and smokey in my lower register. I also love to do sassy reads with a wink or dry & sarcastic interpretations, improv and anything that shows off my sense of humor.

I can be the best friend, the girl next door, the teacher, the girlfriend or wife, the warm announcer, the sexy and sultry woman, the office millennial, the professional co-worker, the young mom and many more! If you're looking for a celebrity read in the style of Anna Kendrick, Emma Stone, Rashida Jones, Scarlett Johansson, Julie Bowen, Allison Janney, Tina Fey, Kate McKinnon, Amy Poehler, Janeane Garafolo, Ellie Kemper, Elizabeth Banks, Rebel Wilson or Melissa McCarthy - you have come to the right place! I also secretly love speed talking, so send me that disclaimer, sweepstakes and legal & fair balance copy! I also just updated my political demo focused on democratic, independent and progressive candidates for the midterm elections in 2018. Also, check out my new radio imaging demo for Alternative & Rock / Alt-Rock stations.

My list of satisfied clients and customers includes: Hoover, Whole Foods Market, American Express, Google, Proactiv, ACT Kids Mouthwash, Target, Monistat, Zipcar, Reeds Jewelers, Sunglass Hut, Tide, Pantene Pro-V, Duracell, Dove, Smashbox Cosmetics, Robert Mondavi Wines, Columbia University, Marriott Hotels, Ann Taylor LOFT, Delivery.com, The University at Buffalo, Pew Charitable Trusts, Pandora, Spotify, iHeart Radio, Yale New Haven Health Hospitals and many, many more!

For explainer videos, corporate presentations, training videos, e-Learning, medical narration, pharma videos, instructional podcasts, award show videos and audiobooks I offer a confident, steady delivery with a friendly smile. I'm great at making complicated tech, financial, regulatory or medical jargon come across as approachable and easy to understand. I know how to make it sound like I'm just their work friend from one cubicle over!

In addition to my voice acting career, you can currently see me on television acting in Netflix's TEAM TOON as Eunice, the lunch lady. I was also a recurring character on Lifetime's hit show ARMY WIVES and a guest star on Nat Geo's LOCKED UP ABROAD. My fiance and I were also on an episode of HGTV's flagship show HOUSE HUNTERS.
