Born in SE Asia- whisked away to Canada by the parents as an infant. Still in Canada, west coast!
Decided to switch gears about midway through life - instead of the sciences, I have now decided to pursue voice-acting; live the dream.
I'm partially funding my VO career through my Etsy shop - The First Pancake is just like me, weird but still good.
That pic on the right shows my dogs who are my living therapy - but the one on the right passed away a few years ago, still has a piece of my heart.
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.
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.
I'm in Vancouver, BC, Canada - home of the most fabulous studios ever and no - I don't live in an igloo.
Give me a shout if you wish to know more.
