Whether you’re looking for a plucky villain for a kid’s show or a bold protagonist for a video game, Maria loves to do animation and character voiceover. After spending her childhood doing impressions of Cartman, Beavis and Butthead and Daria at the dinner table, Maria is literally living the dream. After all, voiceover is not just talking or announcing – it’s acting! (Maria also claims that Anastasia is a highly underrated animated film – now a live-action Broadway musical.)
Maria also loves the explosion of adult animated shows of late and cites shows like Archer, BoJack Horseman, Tuca and Bertie, Central Park among others as influences on her performances.
Recently, Maria had a blast playing the title character of “Prim” in an award-winning point & click adventure game. The character of Prim was described as a cross between Coraline and Daria. Maria loved bringing this sassy youngster to life with the team at Cmmn Clrs. She’s available to do all kinds of cartoons, animated shorts, pilots, video games, computer games or mobile games and apps. Maria’s sassy, confident voice is a natural fit for animation voice acting. If your project is silly or weird, even better.
