In some circles, I'm affectionately labeled as "VO Dad."For some, it's my guidance and advisement that hold them professionally accountable for progress and achievement. For others, it's my plump-and-jovial, dadjoke-loving, soju-and-kbbq-all-day-everyday, and squeeze-hug-you-like-a-dad personality. At least I'd like to believe so.Born and raised in South Korea, I immigrated to the U.S. at age 14 and had to rapidly learn the language and the culture.I'm one of the fortunate ones who inadvertently discovered his happiness inside an improvisation class during the freshman year of high school, and absolutely fell in love with all things theatre arts. I went on to declare a theatre arts performance major, and dreamed of living out my life as an actor.But for this immigrant, that American Dream - of a house in the suburbs, white picket fences, two cars in the driveway, 2.5 children - was an unignorable force. Seven semesters into my theatre arts undergrad, I'd change my direction to become a teacher in pursuit of a "more stable career." I enjoyed directing, after all.From '05 to '16, life was truly an American Dream realized - a family, a house in the suburbs, and a stable career as a theatre arts educator. Two electric cars in the driveway, two kids, and a dog: 2.5 children. We don't have white picket fences, though. I don't like fences.But something wasn't right. It wasn't happiness. And I did not know it at the time.In 2016, I lost my job. In this moment of uncertainty and unhealthy thoughts, I decided it was time to pursue my happiness. I dusted myself off, got hired as a teacher at another school district, and began the full-time-working-part-time-voice-acting life.I went full-time with VO in June of 2018.Today, I would not be here without the love of my family and friends who supported me throughout. I literally owe them my life.I talk about happiness a lot. My moment of realization about happiness occurred in 2016 at age 36, and I continuously consider myself fortunate for being this young.It is this very happiness that I breathe into the characters I play, the scripts I narrate, and the relationships I build - an infusion of my authentic happiness as a voice actor, an educator, and a human being.Acting is fun. Teaching is fun. Streaming is fun. Running a voiceover business is fun. Heck, even filing compliance documents for my LLC is fun. The responsibility I owe to my clients and the characters I'm entrusted to play are most definitely, fun.Because I'm simply living my genuine happiness, and because it's authentically fun for me, you can - and will - hear it. And feel it, too.This is my craft. And my promise.
