I am a Communication Arts graduate from one of the top schools in the Philippines, De La Salle University Manila. My roots in performing arts stem from my youth in theater and a college stint as the front-man for their local band called “Jaguar Chapel”.
In 2019, I finished my thesis on the effects of grief from the loss of a parent on male adolescents, while spearheading production for a music video of my band’s original song “No Change” based on the study.
I spent the year 2020 honing my voice acting skill by launching a Japanese-to-Tagalog anime localization project called “GantuDubs” reaching 45,000 followers on Facebook and 13,000 on TikTok. The following year, I worked as a professional copywriter for IdeasxMachina Group of Hakuhodo Intl.
In 2022, I am now a professional voice actor featured in local commercials (Rebisco, Tofiluk Safari, Save The Children), documentaries, audio dramas (Captain America: The New Frontier), and mods for video games (Starcraft 2, Age of Empires, Fallout 2). Today, I also run a local audio supplier business with my ‘Jaguar Chapel’ bandmates called Shard Sound Production.
I play the role of Beaumont Kin who is a human historian and aspiring professor who joined the Resistance army as an intelligence officer in the war against the First Order. He was also present in the Battle of Exegol during the ground assault against the Star Destroyer Steadfast and now helps the New Republic maintain peace in the galaxy.
To me, anything Star Wars is just something I can dive into without hesitation so I immediately auditioned when I saw the casting call. I’ve been lucky enough to have participated in some Star Wars fan projects before, but nothing like this.
The Prequels were a big part of my childhood, and just the enthusiasm behind this project reaffirmed my desire to be a part of it. There’s also some extra joy and pressure for me to be found in voicing this character who was played by the talented Dominic Monaghan. I love Lord of the Rings, and Flash Forward so to be able to inject something new for his character is just very exciting.
Looks like all those years of doing British accents for Dungeons & Dragons are finally paying off in my profession.
