More About Me, De

History

Born in an Asian Country - sort of Asian Country - whisked away to Canada by the parents as an infant.  Grew up as boringly as possible.

 

Bio

Decided to switch gears about midway through life - instead of the sciences, I have now decided to pursue voice-acting, the lifelong desire.

 

General Whatnot

Not sure what I can put here that wouldn't end up being offensive to someone.

 

But that pic on the right shows my dogs who are my living therapy - so yes, I'm a dog-person.


WHY???

After a lifetime (an... 1850s lifetime) of working in the 'regular world' with corporate nepotism and abuse, plus being the slave to the clock (but unpaid overtime is always welcome) - and also after being flat out bullied at work - I decided that if I'm going to suffer, it had better be for something I truly WANT. 

 

Hence, I am pursuing voice acting and suffering the pain of constant rejection and constant auditions ...  yet I never been happier.

Education(ish)

I have a BSc in Biology and Kinesiology - which comes in handy when something goes funky with my lungs and vocal cords - but otherwise has absolutely nothing to do with VO. 

 

VO-wise, I've had to start from scratch, taking several courses at On the Mic, a course at BCIT and a course at Azur Studios

 

I am fortunate to currently be graced by the guidance and mentorship of David Godfrey.

 

As you can see from above - I've already paid for a literal unversity-degree-tuition fee... and I'm paying for it again for VO - which is why folks who say -

 

"Well, now you have to go for acting training, and get a studio set up... oh, by the way, VO is something ANYONE can do"

 

- can earn a bit of a withering look from me.

Where?

I'm in Vancouver, BC, Canada - home of the most fabulous studios ever and no - I don't live in an igloo.
