Born in Montevideo, Uruguay, Simone is the most successful voice that her country of origin ever exported, being one of the top female Spanish Voice Over Talents in the United States.
She has built a rich, outstanding career over the past 29 years, which began while studying Mass and Social Communications at Universidad Católica del Uruguay, a high profile private University in Montevideo.
After working for 13 years at Océano FM (the #1 Station of Uruguay) as a Radio Personality and DJ, Main Female Corporate/Commercial Spanish Voice Over Talent, Audio Imaging Director and Creative Copywriter, in 2004 Simone decided to go global. The impact came sooner than expected: in about months she was working for several companies around the US while still living in Montevideo, being the very first Uruguayan Spanish Voice Over Talent to work for the global marketplace using the Internet as her daily working platform. Many of those first clients still work with her on a weekly basis!
Today, Simone is fully booked by the best national and international voice banks and independent agencies, not only for her Spanish Voice Over skills, but also for her English‐to-Spanish translation and proofreading services, creative copywriting and audio imaging productions.
Some of her clients include: American Airlines, American Express, United Healthcare, Walmart, Cirque Du Soleil, Target, Harley Davidson, Kimberly Clark, Bayer, Novartis, Microsoft, Nokia, Nintendo, The Walt Disney Company, The Ritz Carlton Hotels, Princess Cruises, Sony, Univisión, Pepsi, Gillette, Maybelline, Revlon, McDonald’s, Home Depot, Levi’s, and many other important brands.
For her English and Spanish Voice Over work on Radio and TV campaigns, Simone has received major awards globally, with prizes bestowed multiple times by the Clio Awards, the New York Festival and Cannes International Film Festival. In Uruguay the Woman of the Year Awards named her that country’s Best Radio Personality. In 2017, she received three awards at the Voice Arts Awards, in New York City, as a Commercial and Narration Demo Producer/Director.
Through the years, Simone has built an outstanding roster of clients with whom she maintains a fluid, long‐term, even personal relationship. She currently lives near Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and works from her professional home studio on a daily basis.
Simone is one of the leading Spanish Voice Over Talents in her professional community, organizing key events, like the Spanish VO Day at VO Atlanta –one of the most respected conferences in the Voice Over Industry, which she directed for 3 straight years.
Besides, she is an international speaker for Spanish Voice Over conferences. Simone has been invited for Locución Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic, and Viva Voz Colombia, in Bogotá.
Simone is a true music lover, especially a big fan of the Classic Rock & Pop bands and artists that were big in the 70s and the 80s, like The Alan Parsons Project, Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones, Spandau Ballet, Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Wonder, George Benson, Bryan Ferry and many others. She even creates her own mixes at home, many of which were played on the air while visiting Uruguay as a Special Guest DJ.
