Hey there! I'm Andy

The founder, creative director, and talent of Bluebird Audio, LLC. I work with traditional publishers and indie authors to bring their audiobooks to life with dynamic storytelling.

My favorite genres are YA, Sweet Romance, Non-fiction, and anything Sci-Fi, LitRPG, or Fantasy.  I work out of my StudioBricks OnePlus VO edition professional home studio in Kansas City and have narrated over 30 books since June 2020.

Hispano by blood, Midwestern by upbringing, I have a unique cultural heritage, not quite fitting into traditional molds.  To learn more about my cultural background, check out this interview with Dr. John Nieto-Philips: 

I began listening to audiobooks in the early 2000s and have dreamed about becoming a narrator for years. Inspired by other narrators and my own life circumstances, I made the move into audiobooks in 2020.

My experience with singing, competitive monologue performance, and improv work; combined with my training with amazing coaches such as Sean Pratt, Shannon Parks, PJ Ochlan, Tanya Eby, Emily Lawrence, Elise Arsenault, Karen White, etc. have provided me with the skills to succeed.  

I look forward to working with you! Click on the "Book Andy" tab, submit an inquiry, or email me directly to connect.

"An Imaginative Adventure"

Plus, the narrator was fantastic - with her great character voices and her ability to keep the story entertaining with her narration. I would highly recommend it!

“Unbelievably Engrossing tale!”

This story was FLAWLESSLY narrated by Andy Garcia-Ruse. She does a PHENOMENAL job performing each character to perfection! Her haunting voice-only upped the ante on this beautifully wrought tale! Can’t wait for the next series!!!

"LOVELY"

I’ve been spoiled by mainly listening to Jay Dyess as a narrator and most other narrators just aren’t up to his level. I was pleasantly surprised by Andy’s performance! She got the voice and the inflections, I didn’t have to think about character changes, I could just immerse myself in the story.
