A youthful and friendly decipherist
Fresh. Crisp. Real.
Born in the Midwest in Chicago, Randy was transplanted at an early age to Los Angeles. A voracious reader as a youngster, one of his favorite genres was encyclopedia articles, and the magical ‘See Also…’ tags which turned reading time into a ‘Choose your own adventure’ / ‘filling the information well’ series.
After graduating from college with a dual-degree in Music (Voice) and Environmental Studies (with concentrations in Earth and Life Sciences and Political Science), he eventually found a way to meld all his knowledge in the world of educational and corporate narration.
- eLearning & IVR
- & more
In addition to being a life-long learner (he’s been relearning his parents’ native language, Filipino/Tagalog since he’s been hired to do a fair amount of VoiceOver work for Filipino projects in the US, Canada and Asia), Randy’s passion in life is teaching. With many years of classroom and one-on-one teaching and coaching under his belt, it is the ‘AHA! Moment’ in the eyes of his students and clients that he lives for.
Couple that with his work as a stage and on and off screen actor, he is able to suss out the story of any script, be it commercial, animation, IVR / Telephone messaging, ADR/looping, commercial, B2B, B2C, corporate, industrial, explainers, formal or conversational reads, dramatic to light-hearted.

Randy Guiaya is a committed individual who I’ve found to be both inspiring and teachable. Randy’s highest qualities, aside from his strong and resolute voice, is his determination to complete tasks with the highest outcome of quality as well as his commitment to seeing the job through to fidelity in the spirit in which it was intended.
Randy only joined my team recently and yet he intuitively understands processes and makes necessary adjustments to achieve the desired outcome in a space where using his voice long term is key to being both clear and consistent; two unrefutable qualities in my profession. Randy is in the nascent stages of becoming a leader on my team and I am incredibly lucky to have him on board. An investment in him with surely lead to high dividends in the future.
Randy Guiaya has been a delight to work with over the past year as he has delivered multiple voiceovers as part of an ongoing project for our organization. We have had a rather tight production schedule and Randy has always been very timely – the product is always in our hands when he said it would be. His work is first-rate and he has a very appealing quality to his voice. What’s more, he would give us a few takes so we could decide which one felt right for that particular segment of the project. Randy is also very responsive in terms of guidance and direction. When we know we need the voiceover to have a certain feel to it, he would tailor his delivery to match our request, tweaking as needed until it’s just right. We have enjoyed greatly our collaboration with Randy.
Randy is an extremely professional voice actor who is responsive and flexible. He is easy to work with, very friendly, and delivers on time. Randy provides highly professional narrations to complex scientific and medical jargon and dedicates time to researching content. We can highly recommend him for eLearning content.
Working with Randy is a real pleasure. His voice-over talents are undeniable and his work is of great quality. Always reliable and pleasant to work with. I will definitely work with Randy again in the future.
Randy had one of the perfect voices for a project produced for a National Science Foundation grant funded project. My sound engineer raved over the quality of his audio submission as well as the timeliness of its receipt. Randy was also instrumental in helping us cast other great BIPOC VO artists to fill in the other open slots on the job.
Randy’s a pro. Amazing voice! quick to response, professional, creative and understand what you need right away! Was a pleasure! Looking forward for our next project together :)”
