Highlights

When speaking Brazilian Portuguese, I have what could be called a "universal" accent, since I grew up in Brasilia, where people from all Brazilian regions converted to. In other words, I don't have a regional accent when it comes to speaking Brazilian Portuguese.
When speaking English (U.S.), I have a slight foreign accent that some people pick up and some don't.

Service Description

Having been a broadcast journalist for many years in Brazil and in the U.S. (as a correspondent), as well as a narrator for several programs shown on Brazilian television networks, my voice is reasonably well-recognized and admired by the Brazilian audience. To quote one producer I worked with in the U.S., I believe that my slight accent could lend a little bit of "charm" or "mystery" to the delivery of the text ("Where is that guy from?", they would ask without being able to pinpoint exactly...)
