Hi! Thanks for visiting my profile!
My voice is warm and friendly, with confidence and a smile. It can be upbeat, conversational and relatable as well as smooth and smokey in my lower register. I also love to do sassy reads with a wink, dry and sarcastic interpretations or anything that shows off my sense of humor. I can be the hip best friend, the girl next door (like Anna Kendrick), the teacher, the girlfriend or wife, the warm announcer, the sexy and sultry woman (like Scarlett Johansson), the straight and direct read (like Allison Janney and Susan Sarandon), the young mom and many more!
I'm proud to be the voice of The New York Public Library (NYPL) weekly podcast available on iTunes, SoundCloud and Stitcher.
You can see some of my most recent work on YouTube at:
http:// bit. ly/mariaplaylist or my website voicebymaria . com
For corporate presentations, training videos, e-Learning, instructional podcasts and audiobooks I offer a confident, steady delivery with a friendly smile.
Speed talking is a special skill of mine and I can deliver fair balance, disclaimers and legal speed at an extremely rapid pace with clear delivery and diction.

Her voice is so versatile that we’ve been able to try a variety of styles for our podcast without searching for new voice talent each time, and she consistently gives us exactly what we need in clean, high-quality recordings. Maria is also reliable and speedy in responding to emails and turning around same-day jobs, which is extremely helpful when we’re up against a deadline."New York Public Library
