I spent my childhood in Singapore immersed in speech and drama clubs and staging plays/ playing pretend any chance I got. I looked up to Rick Dees and Kasey Kasem; recording my own version of a Top 40 Countdown on countless cassette tapes. 

I knew my gift was my storytelling voice - always making song dedication tapes and 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… voicing ads for Harper’s Bazaar, Samsung and more along the way. I transferred to Cal State Long Beach as a broadcast journalism major and landed the Overnight Jazz show gig at KJAZZ 88.1 FM. Apple’s marketing director heard me playing Jim Hall in the wee small hours of the morning and roped me in to develop, host and produce the iTunes Jazz Discovery Podcast. Next was the iTunes Weekly Rewind Podcast for 3 years.

I also voiced every iTunes ad for Pandora and fell in love with the voiceover world. Soon, Food Network came knocking, and I voiced all their promos broadcast in the asian market (14 countries) for 6 wonderful years. 

I have since voiced ads for Target, Amazon, Google and countless more clients. It’s a dream job and I love every second of interacting with my clients. Click here to hear my demos and see next steps to hire me!

For the acting side of my career, I’ve trained in Meisner technique with actor Jeff Kober for many years and currently train with actor Bill Smitrovich. I’ve played a bio medical doctor, international news anchor and other roles that embody my essence of power, ambition and intrigue.

I’ve always followed my bliss at every stage of my life. I truly believe your purposeful desires are placed in your path for you to carry them out… little whispers from the divine that are love fist bumps meant just for you. I always strive to be in tune with that whisper… which is why I’m not afraid of hard work and I’m 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!
