I am a native Spanish/English voice-over actor with no accent whatsoever in either language. I was raised both in Latin and North America so I’m a native speaker of both languages, bicultural and equally comfortable in both worlds. I can easily add a “Hispanic” accent to my English reads when required. My Spanish is best described as neutral Latin American, however, I can also infuse my Latin American Spanish with a Puerto Rican or an Argentine accent.
My voice is best described as friendly, sparkling, expressive, pleasing, warm and enthusiastic. It can sound childlike and fun, or professional, serious and formal, as needed. My clients tell me I’m easy to coach and a pleasure to work with. I believe it’s because I’m very flexible and attuned to their needs. I’ll voice your message just as you’d like!
Edge Studio Voiceover Coach
As of 2012, I am the Boston Voiceover Coach Partner for NYC’s leading voiceover training school, Edge Studio! I coach in Spanish or English in person or via SKYPE of phone patch. You can find my Edge Studio coach bio here.
I am originally from Puerto Rico, born to Josefina del Mar, actress, singer and dancer on Broadway, in Mexico and in Puerto Rico (film and stage), who was originally from NYC of Puerto Rican heritage; and actor/radio host Jaime Andrada, from Buenos Aires, Argentina. They instilled in me their love of music and the spoken word from a very young age. They raised me bilingually, emphasizing the importance of speaking, reading, writing and singing both English and Spanish with perfect enunciation and expression. Little wonder that I ended up in the arts and in media production as singer and voice actor or that I’m passionate about acting and singing!
I feel incredibly lucky to be able to use my acting skills/speaking voice as a bilingual voice-over actor with my company, Amador Bilingual Voice-Overs and my singing voice as a professional Latin singer and touring recording artist (with Sol y Canto) and for a living. Like my parents, I became an entrepreneur at a young age, after graduating from Bryn Mawr College, which I attended after going to school in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
I enjoy creating my own path and have been fortunate to have found a partner in my husband, composer/guitarist/voice-over actor Brian Amador, to share this path with me, working out of our private home studio where we deliver sound/music at our clients’ request and compose original music.
I’ve sung Latin music professionally since 1984. With my husband, Brian Amador, bilingual voice-over actor and composer/guitarist, we can easily add music to any project with high fidelity. I believe that my enthusiasm for voice acting comes through clearly in my work as this is what my clients tell me.
I can complete projects in my own broadcast-quality professional studio or I’m happy to go to one of several nearby professional studios with whom I have longtime relationships. Since 1994 I’ve been honored to do hundreds of voice-overs for documentaries, medical/health institutions, podcasts, telephony, children’s books, eLearning, interactive websites, museums, commercials, and animated characters for small children, adults and 70-year olds.
