Rafael McLeod

Waxhaw, North Carolina, US

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)
