I have been told, both by friends and business colleagues in my adopted hometown of Miami and my native hometown of New Orleans, that I have a "radio announcer's voice". One business colleague in Miami tells me every time I see him, "Ed, you have a radio announcer's voice. You should get a job as a radio announcer!" (I work for an insurance company.) A friend of mine in New Orleans, a town with its own unique accent and one very different from Miami's accents, recently told me the same thing.
I was born, raised, and lived in New Orleans all of my life until I moved to Miami in 1990, at which time I was 37. I have a slight New Orleans accent, but this was tempered by the fact that both of my parents were originally from New Jersey. I grew up in a house with New Jersey accents, but as soon as I went outside, I absorbed some New Orleans accent as well. My father had a strong, deep, clear voice and I think I inherited that from him (thank you, Dad).
A Spanish-speaking friend of mine once told me that, upon listening to a voice mail message I had left for her, that "At first I didn't know it was you. You sounded just like a Latino! I thought your voice mail was a telemarketing call in Spanish!" Another Latin friend, who was impressed with my spoken Spanish, once told me that I was a "Gringo-Latino" when I said something to him in Spanish.
I speak Spanish as well as English and have been told by native Spanish-speakers in Miami and in Costa Rica that they like the sound of my American accent when I speak Spanish. I am looking for voice-over work and/or radio announcer work in Miami, in Spanish.
