"Upbeat, warm, rich, young, character, cool, versatile"

A TEDx speaker, professional actor and voiceover artist in European Portuguese, English and French since 1996. I particularly love character work, so cartoons and videogames are amongst my favourite types of jobs, but I'm equally comfortable with corporate and e-learning materials. I also have a lot of experience doing commercials and documentaries and some of my jobs have been as a foreign correspondent journalist for Rádio Renascença (a Portuguese national radio network), as language checker for Disney and as public speaking training consultant.

Clear, authoritative, precise and clipped for narrations and presentations.
Upbeat, young and exciting or smooth, rich and sensual for commercials.
Versatile character range: from high pitch head voices and falsettos to scary and resonant chest villain voices.
