Over the past three years, I’ve encountered some truly remarkable voiceover actors from the PGM (People Of Global Majority) community, so remarkable that I thought it would be a worthwhile endeavor to dedicate an article about themselves, their accomplishments, and where you can find them and do so every week. When will this end? Most likely never so as I cackle at the infinite posts this may generate, I am so very happy to tell you all that my spotlight for this week is on Robb Moreira!

Robb Moreira is a Bilingual Dominican/Argentinian voice actor who began his acting training at the age of 12. Through his natural ability in Improv, he continued his training through conservatory programs at the LaGuardia High School of the Performing Arts and continuing at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in NYC.
His love for theater continued through his 20’s working on several Off-Broadway shows and continuing to take acting and improv workshops. While his love for the work and art was there, his sustainability to be a working actor was not. After several years working the NY theater scene, a chance conversation with a fellow actor about voice over, planted a bug in him that changed his life forever.
Through hard work and determination, Robb has built a business for himself as a commercial talent in both the English and Spanish markets. Voicing work for companies like Armani, Norton, McDonald’s, and AT&T among several hundreds of other clients, his reputation eventually broke him into the animation and video game realm.
Robb has had the pleasure of bringing characters to life in two Earth Defense Force games as well as voice matching for Bronk Stone in Yu Gi Oh Duel Links. These credits put him on the radar and helped him get a foothold in the anime arena where Robb was able to bring to life two roles he holds dear in his heart. Sakunosuke Oda in Bungou and Alchemist: Gears of Judgment as well as the much beloved Yukimaru in the Adult Swim and Crunchy Roll original, Fena: Pirate Princess.
For more adventures, you can follow Rob on his Twitter account at @RobbMoreiraVO. Throughout the week, I will be highlighting Ryan’s accomplishments and tidbits of his very busy voiceover career so be sure to follow us on The Nerds Of Color Twitter account as I do so!
