Meet Jennifer Aquino:

Jennifer Aquino is an actor and award-winning voice actor based in Los Angeles with over 20 years of experience in film, television, theatre, and voiceover. Fun Fact: she’s one of the doctors who killed McDreamy on ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy. As a voice actor, she voiced the red-head girl Chelsea in Rugrats’ All Grown Up, as well as various characters in Disney’s Super Agent Oso. For the last 3 years, Jennifer has found her love in performing audiobooks, where she gets to play ALL the characters. 

She has worked with 19 publishers, including Penguin Random House, Hachette, HarperCollins, Simon & Schuster, Audible Studios, Blackstone, Brilliance Publishing, and Podium, among others. She also directs audiobooks, working with Hachette, Macmillan, Brilliance Publishing, and Penguin Random House. She recently won The Odyssey Award for voicing 13 characters in the middle grade graphic novel El Deafo by CeCe Bell and was an Audie Awards Finalist for performing in the YA superhero anthology Generation Wonder. Jennifer has also won Audiofile Earphones Awards for narrating My Life: Growing Up Asian in America by CAPE and for performing in the horror book The History of Fear by Luke Dumas. 

She is included in the Narrators Roadmap Coaches Directory and loves to coach narrators for APA Quick Pitch and for auditions with publishers. Additionally, Jennifer has a business background, having graduated from UCLA with a BA in Economics, and brings 15 years of experience in sales, marketing, networking, and leadership training.

 

Meet André Santana:

André Santana’s journey to audiobooks has been filled with the unexpected, but that’s what makes for a great story. Born in Salvador, Brazil, André lived in Seattle for thirteen years. Between high school in the Pacific Northwest and dropping out after tenth grade to start college in the Berkshires, André became known for their summer camp counselor energy, prolific Google Maps reviews, and admiration of media from Moonlight to Fortnite, One Piece to Children of Blood and Bone. 

Along the way, André learned to knit, spent eleven years as a vegetarian, and discovered that waterbeds are custom-made for cows. After jumping through majors like architecture and ceramics, André finally focused on psychology and biosocial studies (biology + sociology), writing a thesis on queer identity development. Staying in higher education after graduation, André worked in diversity and equity before becoming a recruiter. 

During the early pandemic, André found a love for audiobook narration and has since performed across dozens of titles in genres as varied as space opera and contemporary young adult romance. André’s Black, non-binary, immigrant, and Gen Z elder identities profoundly shape their storytelling approach. André mentors in the Audio Publishers Association, serves on the Recognitions and DEI teams in the Professional Audiobook Narrators Association, and is forging a path as an audiobook director.
