I started voice acting in April 2019.
It was a time when I was unemployed and my music partner said my voice was suited for ASMR. Since I already had the proper recording equipments, I thought, no harm giving it a go, and created an Upwork profile.
After a year of doing it on the side (I landed a full-time job shortly after), I switched to full-time. I set up my home studio and started hustling to make a career out of voice acting.
I am an alumna of The University of Kent (UK), majored in Economics and minored in Spanish. Prior to voice acting, I worked in the Cloud Computing and AdTech industries as a marketing manager for 4 years.
Someone once asked me,
what is my end goal as a voice actor?
I feel a certain quiet and peaceful content when my voice is used as a medium of knowledge, that the audience learns through my voice.
And with that, my goal as a voice actor
is to one day narrate for National Geographic,
to travel and take the listeners on a journey that’s always enlightening, often surprising,
and unfailingly fascinating.
Here's to humble beginnings with me narrating from National Geographic posts on Instagram. Give it a listen :)
My favourite category?
I started a 'Storytime with Sam' series both on YouTube (with visuals) and on Spotify (audio only).
I've always loved singing.
I have a YouTube account where I coverboth English and Chinese songs.
I mostly play the ukulele, but picked up the guitalele after my uke got stolen. Like most Chinese,
I play the piano too.
While tutoring Mandarin in Uni,
I met Peter, a multi-instrumentalist.
We started creating music together and formed the band Seraphine.
Give our first album a listen:
Home Taste Bak Kut Teh
is a side business I started, selling Bak Kut Teh soup sachets.
Each packet comes with a story of the past, reminding us of the generations that came before us.
