At age 19, my family and I moved to Utah where I attended college and majored in Broadcast Journalism at Brigham Young University. One year before graduating, I was offered the opportunity to co-host and co-produce a live Spanish TV show for a local station in Salt Lake City. Doing live television is a lot of fun, and requires some serious improvisation skills. Two years later, I became a radio personality for the company's station targeting Utah's young Hispanics. But this was not my first time on-air as a radio and TV hostess. My experience in media began at age 16, while still attending high school in Honduras.
After a couple years of high school theater performances, and being known for my amateur acting skills, I was offered the opportunity to host a national weekend TV show with highlights and reviews on films playing in Honduran theaters. About a year later (and just as it would later happen in Salt Lake City), I was invited to host a daily radio show, and to record my very first radio voice overs and brand endorsements. Needless to say, my early experience in TV and radio, which I then considered a hobby, quickly became a serious career opportunity.
No one has ever accurately guessed where I'm from. Go ahead, take a wild guess. Based on that fact that I speak Spanish, you most likely thought of somewhere in Latin America. Well, here's my story- I was born and raised in Honduras, but have spent almost half of my life in the United States. I consider myself both bilingual and bicultural. As a child, I attended bilingual schools in Honduras where I was not only taught to speak English, but also about US culture, its traditions and holidays. Also, the fact that my paternal family is from the State of Oregon deepens my sense of biculturalism; it pretty much runs in my genes. Hens why I feel extremely confortable doing American voice overs, as well as Spanish voice acting.
In recent years, I have hosted an international radio show, done hundreds of educational narrations for schools across the US, and continued to do voice overs and on-camera work for numerous brands including Nissan and Nu Skin.
As a professional female voice actor, I provide exceptional voice acting for TV commercials, radio ads, cartoon voice over, e-learning narrations and much more. It would be my pleasure to put my talent and experience to work for your brand. Let's chat!
The Importance of a Neutral Spanish Accent
Just as my looks, my neutral Spanish accent on voice overs and narrations often leaves people clueless of my country of origin, which is a great thing! A neutral accent helps your brand have more successful advertisement campaigns that further reach and connect with audiences regardless of their nationality.
