Voice Description

A highly versatile voice, rich, clear, firm, authoritative, professional, dynamic, energetic, very confident yet can be playful being able to pitch modulate for extended periods of time.

So my voice can help me create a wide assortment of characters, people, and moods- at times serious and at others, humorous or even giggly.

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

I can speak English with a Southern US accent too. I can also use NYC slang and tone as well, far away from the corporate voice tone.

I can do the same in Spanish, varying my delivery from an educated voice tone to it's antithesis- more like a country bumpking would speak.

Moreover I can recreate my voice to sound Dominican, Cuban and Puerto Rican as well.
