Ronald narrates our Spanish videos in smooth style. He is a native of Mexico City, Mexico; his intonation and choice of wording is immediately familiar to Spanish-speaking natives from Central America. We nicknamed Ronald “Indiana” because chances are he’s just returned from leading his Boy Scouts on a survival weekend (as District Director, Latino Division), rappelling the deepest cave on earth, or taking his personal ultralight for a ride along Baja’s rugged coast.Email Farr Visions
