Rafael McLeod

English Commercial Composite

Highlights

I was raised bilingually (English/Spanish). Although my conversational accent is Argentine, I normally use a neutral Latin American Accent in Spanish unless otherwise specified. I have a deep voice that conveys authority and/or a warm and soothing feeling. I have done numerous projects that require the "Voice of God" type characterization. If you want classy, romantic, dramatic or professional, I can deliver. I am known in the industry as being easy to direct and agreeable to work with. However, I also can provide a hard-sell style appropriate for auto dealerships. Approximately a third of my projects have been in Spanish, the rest in English. I can be contacted direct at (Phone hidden) or email me at (Email hidden)

Rafael really went the extra mile for me recording multiple takes of a tricky VO that contains words in English and Spanish. His reading seamless goes through the names of characters and places in Spanish to the English reading of the main piece.
Thanks a lot.
Roman.
