Voice Description

Narration... (includes Technical, Industrial, Medical, Audio, Children's) is like telling a story. I am warm, I am very articulate, dramatic, and expressive. It's about the attitude that I am using to read. It depends on the age group, who the people are, the point of the read, and the goal of the read. I use my English accent for these projects.

Commercials... I am fun, I am energetic, I am sexy. Depending on the commercial I can be dramatic.

Animation voice... I play a wicked witch, or evil queen and I have a wicked laugh. And also take on the role of a good witch, a good queen, and a princess as well.

Spokesperson... reading for a commercial, I can be whoever I am reading for which involves some drama. (I want to challenge myself)

My Voice Experience

I am originally from Singapore and have always spoken with an English accent. I started noticing that when I spoke people stopped and listened. Literally, this was when I wanted to use my Voice. It's beautiful and perfect. So, I started at The Mannequin Studio and became a Fashion Model and did Tea Room modelling, and when I came to America I started with Barbizon Modelling School in San Diego.

In 2010, I recorded a voice message for a young colleague's mobile phone because he was intrigued by my voice.

I did a short thing a testimonial for B & R Computers in San Diego in 2012, when I had my laptop fixed. This was an opportunity for the start of my VoiceOver career. This testimonial can be viewed at their website:

I did a Radio Read Service for KPBS in San Diego, reading the Union Tribune from October 2012 to January 2013. And this was for the visually impaired.

I did my first Demo CD recordings at Studio C.

My Training

In College, I studied Anthropology, Business Law, Business Communications, Arabic and Latin.

I studied travel at SST Travel School in San Diego, and Saber at the American Airlines Training School in Dallas, Texas. (this was in the past 1980s)

I studied Beginners Acting in Autumn of 2012 at City College in San Diego.

I attended Dru Scott's VoiceOver classes in Autumn of 2011, and I did my first VoiceOver recordings at Studio C.

My Studio Equipment

I do not have my own studio. I prefer to use Scott Higby's Studio C for my future recordings. Further details on equipment to follow...
