All of Five Seconds

This song is about falling in love with the idea of someone … until you realize it could never work. Maybe they’re too young, or too far away, or on too intense of a career path. In the last few years, I’ve learned that making a relationship work requires more than just love and devotion; it takes the right timing, compatibility, proximity, common values and goals, aligned career paths, a shared love of guacamole, and so much more. So instead of risking heartbreak, you enjoy the reverie of what could be … for all of five seconds 🙂

It took me all of five seconds to fall in love with you
And I don’t know how to play it cool
Oh no I never was good at flirting in school
When I see you I just want to run and hide
I should be better at this at 29

It took you all of five seconds to make me fall for you

How did you do it it’s not fair
I’m tongue tied frozen
One look from you makes me cuckoo
I’m melting into

Sunsets on the hammock swing
Friday nights at home spent tap dancing
Slowly waking up to sweet nothings
If only this were real and not a day dream

I’m so hopelessly doomed, I don’t know what to do

Now I know that we could never be
Because you’re on a different path than me
Love is not the only thing you need
But still a girl can hope and dream

Can I have more than five seconds, more than five seconds, more than five
seconds with you

I want more than five seconds, more than five seconds, more than five seconds
with you

I’d like more than five seconds with you
I know that you feel something too
But I don’t want you to break my heart
So I’ll leave before you make a mark

I’ll take all of five seconds in place of eternity
Because that’s how it’s meant to be!

Broken hearts make the best art

“Take your broken heart, make it into art.”
– Carrie Fischer

Below is a still from the latest short film I acted in, I See You. It’s funny how art often coincides with life. For this scene, I channeled the grief I felt over not ever being able to see or talk to someone I loved dearly. Unexpectedly, I experienced a wave of peace and resolution wash over me as I realized I had to move on, and the best thing I could do was make art from the brokenness I felt.

Puppet Town

Found this hidden gem on my YouTube channel.

Presenting Puppet Town, a short film about a lonely girl who finds solace in a world of puppets, until one day…

This was the very first short I ever produced, and it was made possible in part by the 72 Hour Film Shootout. Thank you to everyone who helped out on it, especially my co-producers Edward Hong and Sheila Tejada, director/editor Rock Chang, cinematographer Steven Lam, writers Ivan Tsang and Andy Wise Lee, and sound mixer Andrew Furtado.

The Great Wall of Vicky Lynn

I played the lead in The Great Wall of Vicky Lynn, a film about a quirky, mischievous, uncoordinated high school student who dreams of joining the hip-hop dance team, if only her tiger mom would let her. She finds her own way to join, which results in catastrophe and confrontation. By the end of the film however, the mother and daughter form the closest bond they have ever had. It’s very funny yet moving. Enjoy these behind-the-scenes photos! 🙂

Also for your amusement, here are my audition videos 🙂

Scene 1: High five for top five!

Scene 2: Harvard say whaaat?

Bonus Feature: Sarah’s Hip Hop Dance Moves

Signed with DPN Talent and Houghton Talent for voiceover

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Although we live in challenging times, there is still much to be thankful for. I’m thankful for my voice, which I can use to bring awareness to causes I believe in. I’m thankful for my health, because without good health, nothing else matters. And I’m thankful for new voiceover representatives who believe in me, even though I’m very much new to the industry. 🙂

I’m so grateful to be represented by DPN Talent in Los Angeles and Houghton Talent in Atlanta for animation and commercial voiceover. Thanks for taking a chance on this little munchkin!

New Commercial Voiceover Demo

Super excited to unveil my new commercial voiceover demo!

And here’s a Mandarin Zojirushi commercial I voiced 🙂

In other news, I just finished Animation 2 at Kalmenson & Kalmenson with Dino Andrade and learned so much about voiceover for video games and how realistic and understated you have to be. Additionally, I learned a bunch of different techniques for creating truthful characters, including visualization, layering and placing characters in different parts of your body. Excited to put my knowledge to use! 🙂
