BIO OF NICOLE PEREZ
Born and based in the heart of the Windy City, Nicole has been bringing her exuberant friendliness and enchanting human sound to a broad range of voice over clients for over a decade! With ten years of experience as a professional educator, and several years performing comedy theater, her bright voice naturally engages listeners and learners. Nicole’s inner teacher detects a script’s teachable moments, and her inner thespian defines and performs the story. Her work spans from commercials to eLearning and from medical narration to audiobook characters.
In 2012, Nicole was the spotlight winner for That’s Voiceover!™ in Chicago, where she won a promo voiceover job with NBC Chicago, and won her beloved Neumann TLM 102 microphone, on which she has since recorded local, regional, and national commercial ads, countless e-Learning modules, PSAs, nationwide phone menu systems, and more. Whether it’s the warm earthy crunchiness of a radio spot for Nature’s Valley™ Peanut Butter Bar, the smooth and reassuring feel for a heart medication’s Important Safety Information video, or the boisterous and sarcastic dragon in a GraphicAudio® novel, Nicole’s versatility lets her narrate with authority and wisdom, sing a jingle in character, cackle or cry on cue, or playfully improvise an organic story.
Nicole is also a self-professed Linguaphile and Grammar Enthusiast. She earned her Master of Education in Instructional Leadership at the University of Illinois at Chicago, is a proud lifetime member of the International English Honors Society, Sigma Tau Delta, and was the winner of Mr. G’s 3rd Grade Class “Best Handwriting” in 1995.
Behind the mic, Nicole embraces her training and experience in acting and comedy by finding the story, the humor within it, the contrasts, the patterns, and knowing the respective genre’s audience. Nicole trained and performed in comedy at The Second City, Acting Studio Chicago, The Vagabond School of Arts, The Comedy Clubhouse, among others. Her love for story is her driving force in improv. Nicole is a founding member of Las Tinas Improv, a Chicago improv troupe who performs fully improvised telenovelas. Las Tinas performed at the 2019 Chicago Women’s Funny Festival, The Miami Fuacata Improv Festival, The Laugh Factory, was featured on WGN, Telemundo, Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun-times, Time-Out Chicago, and were finalists for the Chicago Reader’s “Best of Chicago 2019” Improv troupe.
