There's Something about Maria...
As a teenager, eager to experience showbiz, Maria faxed (yes, faxed!) casting directors in hopes of starring in movies. The movies never panned out, but she did land an agent, and was quickly working on set, appearing as a series regular on KidZone.
After giving birth to 2 daughters, and being enamored with voice over work, Maria transitioned completely from working on camera, to behind the mic...her happy place.
Clients like IBM, Walmart, Martha Stewart Weddings, Co-op, University of Toronto, and EB Horsman & Son, have all trusted Maria to get their message across authentically...whether it be in form of promotional material, website videos, eLearning, explainer videos, or phone messages.
Working alongside a talented audio engineer, clients can be confident Maria's audio is broadcast quality.
As a Filipino/Greek Canadian gal, Maria can also offer her clients a light Filipino accent, when diverse voices are sought out.
Maria has studied at The Voice Shop in New York, On the Mic in Vancouver, and has been coached by Emmy award winning director, Stevie Vallance.
When she's not working behind the mic, Maria can be found walking her sweet Aussie/Border/Husky mix, Hemi, or trying out a new coffee shop, in hunt for the perfect espresso. A book of poetry, as well as a picture book manuscript are in the works.
Maria is based on the West Coast of Canada, in beautiful BC.
