Maria Pendolino

Warm, relatable, sassy, upbeat, friendly, playful

Voice Description

Hi! I'm the voice you've been looking for!

I am super proud to be a 2017 Voice Arts Award nominee for best e-learning voiceover! I am a professional actor and have been working in the entertainment industry for over ten years. You can currently see me on 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 voice is warm and friendly, with confidence and a smile. It can be upbeat, conversational and relatable as well as smooth and smokey in my lower register. I also love to do sassy reads with a wink, dry/sarcastic interpretations or 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 mom and many more! If you're looking for a read like Anna Kendrick, Rashida Jones, Scarlett Johansson, Julie Bowen or Allison Janney - you have come to the right place!

For explainer videos, corporate presentations, training videos, e-Learning, medical narration, instructional podcasts and audiobooks I offer a confident, steady delivery with a friendly smile.

Speed talking is a special skill of mine and I can deliver fair balance and legal speed at an extremely rapid pace with clear delivery and diction.
