It's hard not to be a lover of language when you've had the privilege of encountering it in multiple countries, in different languages and accents, from a young age.
Born in South Africa to Portuguese parents, I moved to Brazil as a teenager, where several years in international schools brought me into constant contact with a wide variety of accents, as did regular travel.
Even before moving to Canada, I spent several years cultivating a smooth, warm, rich voice, with a delivery to draw people in to make an intimate connection to the words I speak. A career in journalism further honed my ability to make the English language sing, and I have also taken care to keep up my fluency in Portuguese.
My delivery can range from authoritative professorial types, brimming with knowledge that demands attention, to a more pitter-patter wit that can be tinged with sympathy or sarcasm, depending on the audience. Tell me what to channel, and I'll deliver: It's your script, I'm there to make it sound perfect.
From my home studio, I can deliver your voice track within 36 hours of accepting your assignment.
