Veteran Voice Artist

Pocholo “The VoiceMaster” Gonzales – the voice behind literally thousands of dubbed anime characters, local radio and television commercials, various children’s programs, films, dubbed foreign telenovelas, drama, TV shows, video games and audiobooks. His voice acting career began when he won DZMM’s drama and singing contest “Radyo, Radyo” in 1996, at the young age of 16. At that time, he was a freshman in the University of the Philippines, Diliman taking up Speech Communication.

From animation like Digimon and Cyborg Kuro-Chan, to foreign telenovelas like Meteor Garden and Chabelita, Pocholo has dubbed thousands of hours for such TV shows. He has also voiced hundreds of commercials for clients like PLDT, Globe Telecom, Smart Telecom, Pepsi, National Bookstore, Rebisco Crackers, and Bibo Hotdog, to name a few. In 2008, he voiced and voice directed the characters of Toti and Hal An in the country’s first digital full-length animation movie entitled “Dayo: Sa Mundo ng Elementalia”. He also worked as a Dubbing Director for HERO TV and Cinema One.

The Man BEHIND a Thousand Voices

Starting out young in the voice acting world, Pocholo had his own share of frustrations and disappointments as he was making his name in the industry. But instead of folding up and putting his dream on the back burner, he used this frustration as a fuel to realize his vision – to make the Philippines the center of voiceover excellence in Asia.

In 2005, Pocholo established his own voiceover services company, Creativoices Productions. But more than being just another audio production house, Creativoices became the home of the very first and premier voice acting school in the country – the Philippine Center for Voice Acting. This school, more popularly known as “VoiceWorx,” became a hub for aspiring voice artists to develop their voice acting skills, and get their foot in the door of voice acting. 10 years and 35 batches later, VoiceWorx has produced more than 1,000 graduates, and almost half of them are actively making their name in the industry – as dubbers, voiceover talents, events host, broadcasters, and even trainers.

Through Creativoices, Pocholo also brought the Filipino voice acting talent to the international scene when he closed several projects with the famous video gaming company, Sega. Pocholo became the voice director for arcade games such as Harley Davidson King of the Road, Golden Gun, Operation Ghost and Transformers. Those games all used Filipino talents for the voices of the characters.

The Philippines’ Most Recognized Voice Artist

Because of all his accomplishments as a voice artist, Pocholo became the only Filipino/Asian panelist in the 2012 VoiceOver International Creative Experience (VOICE) in Anaheim, California.

Being the “VoiceMaster of the Philippines,” Pocholo is by far the most acknowledged and recognized voice artist in the country. He has been featured in several television programs like “Balitang K,” “Matanglawin” and “Kabuhayang Swak na Swak” in ABS CBN, “I Juander” and “Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho” in GMA, “ShopTalk” and “Mukha” in ANC, “Tribe,” “Aprub” and “Taumbahay” in Net 25, “Sweet Life” in QTV, “Good Morning Boss” on PTV 4, “Medyo Late Night Show with Jojo A” on TV 5, and “Serbisyo All-Access” in CNN Philippines. He was also featured in both print and online publications like Speed Magazine, The Philippine Star, Manila Bulletin, Reach Knowledge Magazine, Rappler and Raket.ph. He was even featured in some radio programs of DZBB, Radyo Veritas, DWIZ, Radyo Singko, DZRJ, UNTV Radio, Pinas FM, DZRH, and DZMM.

Pocholo is often being compared to the legendary Mel Blanc and is considered the Philippines’ “Man of a thousand voices.” But for Pocholo, he is the VoiceMaster because he is the man BEHIND a thousand voices – the voices of those who used to just dream for their voices to be heard.

In September 2016, he released his second book, “Gusto Kong Maging Voice Talent,” that gives aspiring voice artists a roadmap to build a successful career in the voice acting industry. It is the first-ever voice acting book in the Philippines that Pocholo has written in celebration of his 20th year in voice acting. Pocholo’s first book is entitled “Voice Care for Teachers, which he released in June 2015.
