Michelle is the first friend I made when I moved to Toronto. We played a gig together that involved a lot of instrument moving. Because we both have Taiwanese background, we soon became close friends.
How old are you?
Younger than when Full House began but older than The Simpsons’ tv show premiere.
What do you do?
I’m a sound editor and re-recording mixer at The Farmhouse Creative Labs where I have the opportunity to work on post-production audio for tv shows, documentaries and full length films. I get to be a Foley artist sometimes as well, where I physically create sound effects for what you see on screen by wearing different kinds of shoes, rubbing different fabrics, and using all kinds of fun props! Some of my favourites have been using an umbrella for recreating angel wings and the time I got to make gushy sounds with food for horror scenes.
What is your favourite month? Why?
It’s hard to tell when exactly spring is nowadays in Toronto, but when the weather first hits 17-20 degrees and the sun is out, the flowers are blooming, and I can ride my bike—there’s no other feeling quite like it.
Are you a beach person or mountain person?
I’m a “warm-weather mountain” kind of person. I love greenery and animals.
Where do you want to travel to the most at this moment? Why?
I would love to go back to Japan. I went years ago with my family but this time I would love to travel all over the island, from Hokkaido to Kagoshima. I love Japanese food and have a deep appreciation for their traditional and modern art. My goal is to go sometime in the spring to catch their hanami festivals.
What do you usually eat for breakfast? Why?
I usually have two eggs on a slice of bread with a glass of milk and fruit on the side. Nice and simple! I’m not a picky eater though, I like switching it up all the time.
If you had one wish, what would it be?
To live a healthy and meaningful life.
Any words you live by?
Keep it simple, stupid.
