Voice Work

Dubbing, voice over and narration in English, Spanish and Catalan of stories, ads, language courses, commercial videos, cartoons, theatre narration, etc.
If you click here you will be taken to my web full of examples of voice work I have done over the years.


Presenter/Moderator/MC

Presenter/MC in Catalan, Spanish, French and English for conventions, congresses, business meetings and parties, for Barcelona City Hall, Ascari, Samsung Lufthansa, Amnesty International or the 19th World Petroleum Congress among many others, both in Spain and abroad (Britain, Italy, Sweden, Austria, Canada, Germany, France … ) in places such as a Formula 1 race track in Ronda, a business centre in Toronto, a design hotel on Portugal’s Atlantic coast, Barcelona’s Liceu operahouse or a boat on the Rhine. The work carried out has meandered between the most extreme protocol in the presence of the Spanish King Juan Carlos I, to the funniest of humour with a marked British way of understanding comedy, although without the accent when required.
