Hello again! Thank you so much for taking the time to learn a bit about me. Let me just start by saying that 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 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 I also learned all about US culture, its history and traditions. The fact that my paternal family is from Oregon deepens my sense of biculturalism; it's in my genes! Hence why I feel extremely confortable doing American English voice overs, as well as Latin American Spanish voice acting.
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.
In recent years, I've hosted US local and international radio shows, done hundreds of educational narrations for schools across the US, and continued to do commercial voice overs and on-camera work for numerous international brands including Target, Amazon Music, Eggo, Nissan, Quaker Oats, and Rio 2 The Video Game (I voiced Eva, a loud and sassy toucan).
In 2020, despite it being a year of unprecedented worldwide hardships, I won my very first Voice Arts Award presented by SOVAS, for the category of "Outstanding Spoken Word or Story Telling - Best Spanish Performance." These awards are basically the Oscars of the VO industry, so yes, it's an absolute honor to be awarded one. Best part, I didn't win it alone, but with a group of incredibly talented Hispanic voice over artists. Together we gave life and spirit to a beautiful production of Pablo Neruda's poem "Para Que Tú Me Oigas".
As a professional female voice talent, I provide exceptional voice acting for TV commercials, radio ads, cartoon voice over, e-learning narrations, poems and much more. All in neutral Latin American Spanish, or English with a slight (or heavy) Spanish accent.
Allow me to put my talent and experience as a voice over artist to work for your brand and/or your clients.
Now is a great time to talk :)
Where is my Latin American Spanish from? Nowhere, it's 100% neutral.
Just as my looks, my neutral Spanish accent in voice overs and narrations often leaves people clueless of my country of origin, which is a great thing! A neutral Spanish accent helps your brand have more successful advertising campaigns that allow you to reach and connect with a broader Hispanic audience, regardless of their nationality.
