Biography

In my life,

I have found myself putting on different hats in my interesting musical journey. Blessed with musical talents as a kid, I went on to win scholarships with Yamaha Music and won several awards along the way. While some people agnoize over what they wanna be when they grow up, for me it was always as clear as the blue sky: Music.

Life though had some surprises for me. It was not to be a clear, easy path. The early passing of my mom when I was 17 years old turned my otherwise sheltered and comfortable life upside down. Who am I? Why am I here? What is the meaning of life? Therein began my spiritual journey.

After returning to Singapore in 1999 after 4 years of university life in Australia, I pursued a career in choral conducting and teaching piano and music in the International schools in Singapore. One thing led to the next and I finally started my own company in 2005, Athenarts Pte Ltd. It was also then I founded The Athenarts Performing Troupe. It was the start of my entrepreneur journey.

Over the past 10 years, I gained many experiences as an entrepreneur, working closely with my husband Raymond to help companies to raise funds for their projects and obtained government funding as well as to talk to investors etc.

I believe I am in a unique position to help Arts Companies and those in the creative industries to grow by bridging the gap between Arts and Commerce. Often it is difficult to explain business to artistes and Arts to bottom-lined focused business men. Thankfully the one I married appreciates Arts and told me that Arts is the highest form of business.

They say that life only makes sense when you look back. And somehow I find that that's kinda true. Perhaps all my different interests and adventures are coming together now and I can use whatever experiences that I have gathered to enrich the lives of those whom I have the privledge to cross paths with.
