I am a Spanish/English, Bilingual voice-over actor with no accent in either language, and a native speaker of both languages. I can add a "Hispanic" accent to my English reads when required. I am originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico, but my Spanish is neutral Latin American, with a Mexican accent on request.
My principal career for the past 27 years has been as a guitarist and composer of Latin music for adults and bilingual music for children. Along the way I was offered educational narration for children and got hooked on voice-overs as well.
My voice is best described as conversational, friendly, professional, trustworthy, emphatic, natural and animated. My voice can sound kind and empathetic; childlike and whimsical: or professional, serious and formal, as needed for more informational reads and enthusiastic and convincing for commercial reads. I'm open to direction should a client need a specific type of read, and can voice a wide range of characters.
My aim is to voice your message the way you'd like it to sound and to be part of your team. I can complete projects in my own broadcast-quality professional studio or I can quickly get to one of several nearby professional studios with whom my company, Amador Bilingual Voice-Overs, has a longtime relationship. Since 1994 I've been honored to do hundreds of voice-overs for documentaries, tutorials and industrials, medical/health institutions, children's books, eLearning, and interactive websites, including character voices for senior men and animated characters.
I have extensive experience doing educational narrations in particular, and have, for the past 3 years been chosen to narrate and compose instrumental music for numerous children's audio books and eLearning projects with major publishers. My first audio book won the American Library Association's "2010 Best Children's Audio Recordings". This being said, I also narrate and act for a great variety of voice-over work in general. I am a flexible voice-over actor and welcome new challenges as well as that which I'm more accustomed to doing.
As a professional guitarist and composer of many original songs and instrumental selections for audio books, I welcome opportunities to use my talents for my clients' projects. My wife is a professional singer and we can easily record together in our studio for any project I'm involved in.
I'm delighted to be doing voice-over work and clients tell me they enjoy my quick sense of humor, and that I'm easy to work with because of my relaxed attitude and willingness to find just the right voice for their projects.
I have been in the industry since 1994.
