Warm, Soft, Sincere, Passionate, Mom Next Door

Voice Description

I have always been singing very well (from low notes to high notes - it seems very natural for me to sing without too much of efforts). My voice is very flexible to express in a wide range. It shows warmth and in-depth tones for narrations (TV/film and audiobook); it shows sincerity and joy for commericals; and it adds smooth, intellectual, and professional tones to presentations. Not only I can provide the best Standard Mandarin VO, I can also present the best Standard Shanghaiese(Wu)to the clients. Moreover, I am a Chinese/Mandarin coach for actors; and I teach Chinese/Mandarin in Los Angeles Community Colleges. This year (2010), I hope that I can contribute more of my talent in Voice Over Industry through Chinese/Mandarin and other Chinese dialects. Finally, I want to share my deepest hope with you - my fellow Americans, please do consider first to offer the best job opportunities to your Chinese American voice over artist(s); we deserve a better chance and a greater recognition. What we do not have enough is the unique opportunities in doing it. Please provide us the opportunity to do the great job for you... Thank you for listening to my inner thoughts !

My Voice Experience

Frankly,I marvel that my voice can be utilized within such a wide range, and expresses the deepest inner emotion to connect with the characters that I present. This is a new discovery about my voice's flexibility in sharing a variety of feelings to the people that I care. I have done VO for American Cancer Society and aired on LA 18TV. And I have also been chosen to do the VO by Justin Hogan and Michael Nash for their deocumentary film "Climate Refugees". Recently, I just finished doing "West by Southwest" for both translation and VO, for Mr. Michael Miatti's project as a tour guide in Chinese/Mandarin. Lately, I haved voice over for a project in 2010 Census for a local non-profit organization for their Animation film. Moreover, I am a Chinese/Mandarin coach for actors. I speak Standard
Chinese Mandarin (my Mandarin is clear with no accent).
This year 2010, I have again been chosen by American Cancer Society for their "Relay For Life" spot in LA 18TV (will be aired on 3/26 to 6/30 during Chinese News time).
