"The Global Voice From Nowhere"

The Global Voice From Nowhere, Nicholas Contreras is a Filipino Voiceover Artist who loves telling stories, pushing boundaries and making people laugh. He is warm, energetic, personable and on many an occasion...offbeat!

The catalyst for Nicholas’ voiceover journey began in 2018, when he put himself forward to play a soldier in Disney’s Live Action Film, Mulan (2020). From there, his interest in acting grew, and he started taking acting classes. He then took a voice acting course taught by Toby Ricketts to expand his horizons. Nicholas now works on voiceover projects from his home studio and takes workshops to continue honing his craft.

Nicholas has a global accent that you can’t quite place: A Global Voice From Nowhere. It is a blend between a Kiwi accent and Standard U.S. American accent.

He can also utilize a Standard U.S. American accent.

Nicholas has the versatility to voice in a number of different styles, takes direction well, and especially enjoys character acting.
