Testimonials

As a producer/director of foreign language audio programs and audio books, I am privileged to have worked with Adriana Sananes since 1993 on multiple Spanish language programs and as an English speaking audio book narrator as well. Adriana is simply my preferred voice talent (and the industry’s as well) for Spanish language children’s stories and teaching programs. She is the best. The dramatic nuance Adriana brought as an English speaker to the audio book version of Loving Che, by Ana Menendez, which I produced and directed for Highbridge Audio, permitted me to fully discover the depth and breadth of her formidable talent. She is a wonderful actress and storyteller.
