Background

Sun-Mi struggles to answer the question "Where are you from?". She was welcomed into the world in the USA to an African American/Cherokee father and a French mother, raised in Poland, Eastern Europe and was so captivated by sunny Australia that she decided to make Perth her home in 2010. Currently a holder of three passports, she's truly a citizen of the world, which suits her innate nomadic nature.

Coming from a family of avid readers and academics, Sun-Mi was instilled with a passion for education and a thirst for knowledge. To this day she thrives in learning environment. She was also surrounded by music, which eventually lead her to pick up a guitar and sing. Even though she always enjoyed live performance, it was only a few years ago that she discovered a flare for theatre. In 2014 Sun-Mi co-founded Fairly Random Inc., a performing arts company that focused on short theatre and produced a number of evenings of 10-minute plays. Since late 2017 she has dedicated herself to her solo project, Audiotherapy. It started as a stage production for FRINGE WORLD PERTH 2018 and within half a year evolved into a regular radio show and podcast.

Sun-Mi has lived with major depression her entire adult life. She lives with it successfully and it doesn't define her. She wouldn't change a thing, as she considers her condition and the experiences she's had as a result of it to be great teachers; in self-awareness, empathy, relationships and, ironically, happiness.
