I looked up to Rick Dees and Casey Kasem, recording my own version of
Top 40 Countdowns on cassette tapes as a kid.
My storytelling voice made me the go-to person for helping friends make prank calls to unsuspecting crushes using different character voices and accents.
At 17, I landed an on-air personality gig at Singapore’s Top 40 radio station
and voiced national commercials along the way.
While living my childhood dream of hosting radio shows and plotting to have an acting career, I felt a growing frustration at the lack of more English speaking opportunities on-camera for minorities in Singapore.
... Because there was no way my Asian parents would let me major in acting!
Determined to find my own way, I nabbed the prime time weekend jazz and blues shows
at KJAZZ 88.1 FM and soon, Apple roped me in to develop, host and produce
Apple’s first ever podcast, the iTunes Jazz Discovery Podcast & 2 more!
Food Network came knocking and I became the voice of Food Network in Asia.
I have since voiced ads for some of the largest companies in the world and recently started dubbing TV shows from around the world for the American market.
I have trained in the Meisner technique with Emmy Award winning actor,
Jeff Kober, and continue to train with prolific actor Bill Smitrovich.
I have played doctors, barracuda lawyers, multilingual interrogators
and other roles that embody the
essence of power, ambition and intrigue.
I always strive to be in tune with that whisper… which is why I am not afraid of hard work and am never giving up on my dreams.
I hope my 2 daughters, Nikhita and Aanika, see that relentless drive and will live a life of intention,
never shying away from their purpose.
