About

Hi. I’m Alicia A. Diaz. Nice to meet you!

My job is to make you and your business sound amazing.

I love helping clients share their messages and stories.

The people I work with like my clear and frequent communication and my willingness to adapt to a project. I take pride in taking direction and giving clients what they ask for. I’m attached to the idea of doing quality work, but I’m flexible and happy to adapt to your process for getting our work done.

I have a warm tone and excellent diction. I can say long phrases of medical or technical or corporate gobbledygook and make them sound natural. My favorite thermoplastic is acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, because it’s so much fun to say. I frequently have a smile in my voice and I’m happy to report a healthy sense of humor. My husband once asked me to re-record our outgoing voicemail message, ’cause it was “too sexy”. On the other hand, I can play a millennial engineer and an angry mom – I’ve got range 🙂

You might not want to work with me if you don’t want constructive, collaborative communication. I make suggestions when I feel they might help. You don’t have to take ‘em, and I can’t help giving them. Seriously, it’s like a disease – involuntary proof reading. I want your script’s grammar to be clean and clear and your writing to be tight. And I can help, without losing your unique voice.

How to pronounce “Alicia Diaz”:

It’s Ah-LEE-cee-ah, unless you’re Cuban, when it’s Ah-LEE-zhya; or Castilian, when it’s Ah-LEE-thya. And lots of people know of the actress Cameron Diaz (fun fact: Her Dad, also Cuban. No, we’re not related, that I know of – Diaz is kind of like Smith in the Hispanic world) and my Diaz is pronounced the same as hers – DEE-ahz. The Cuban D is what my speech therapist friend calls dentalized – it sounds like a TH with a little extra air behind it…but you don’t need to worry about that 🙂
