Service Description

 WHAT I OFFER
As a full-time professional voiceover talent, you can confidently cast me in your project and know that you will get a top-notch performance from a national talent. I have my own dedicated home studio and I offer broadcast-quality pristine audio and can accommodate live directed sessions via SourceConnect, ISDN, ipDTL, Zoom, Google Hangouts and Phone Patch. I can typically offer same-day or 24 hour turnaround.

VOICEOVER GENRES
I regularly voice commercials, promos, video games, explainer videos, e-learning, corporate narration, medical narration, animation, television in-show and documentary narration, telephone systems, IVR, political, apps, voice activated smart speakers, radio imaging, automotive dealerships, live announce/Voice of God, singing and jingles. 

CORPORATE NARRATION AND INDUSTRIALS
I do a lot of work in the medical, corporate, pharmaceutical, industrial and e-learning space. I specialize in bringing a friendly and approachable voice to scripts that can be very jargon-heavy and complex. I'm not afraid of long, hard to pronounce words! I know how to make it sound like I'm just their work friend from one cubicle over!

CELEBRITY REFERENCES
I'm not a celebrity impressionist, but I can deliver reads in the style of Anna Kendrick, Emma Stone, Rashida Jones, Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Lawrence, Julie Bowen, Beanie Feldstein, Allison Janney, Tina Fey, Kate McKinnon, Amy Poehler, Janeane Garafolo, Ellie Kemper, Elizabeth Banks, Rebel Wilson or Melissa McCarthy.

SPECIAL SKILLS
I secretly love speed talking, so send me that disclaimer, sweepstakes and legal & fair balance copy! I'm also a singer and love to work on character singing or jingles. I was a musical theatre performer in NYC before becoming a full-time voice actor and secretly, Ursula the Sea Witch from The Little Mermaid might be my spirit animal.

Client List

 WHERE YOU HAVE HEARD MY VOICE
I've voiced content for companies like Google, American Express, Dannon, Zipcar, Zelle, Whole Foods Market, AWS - Amazon Web Services, ACT Kids Mouthwash, SunChips, Dove, Smashbox Cosmetics, Robert Mondavi Wines, Proactiv, The New York Public Library and Hoover - among many others! I'm also voicing for Democratic and progressive political candidates for the 2020 election season. Note: These are representative brands and don't necessarily reflect a current commercial conflict. 

I have a playlist of recent work on YouTube: http://bit.ly/mariaplaylist

As a corporate and e-learning narrator, I have narrated hundreds of hours of content for Fortune 500 companies around the globe. 

OUTSIDE OF VOICE ACTING
In addition to my voice acting career, you can currently see me on television acting in Netflix's TEAM TOON as Eunice, the lunch lady. I was also a recurring character on Lifetime's hit show ARMY WIVES and a guest star on Nat Geo. My husband and I were also on an episode of HGTV's flagship show HOUSE HUNTERS. I'm also a budding stand-up comedian and take comedy classes at Helium Comedy Club. Perhaps I'll be performing in a city near you someday soon?

I have three rescue cats named Two Scoops, Mozzie and Nellie. You can follow their antics on my Instagram: @mariapendo
