Actor, Singer, Dancer, and Cultural Consultant, Emiko brings a warm, friendly, and elegant presence, and she can have plenty of sass, humor and yes, a dark side if needed!
She has toured internationally, has voiced for clients across the US, Canada, Asia, Europe and Australia, and has experience looping and doing ADR.
Born in Hawai'i and raised in California., she speaks English, Indonesian/Malay, and Balinese fluently. She has two distinct sounds in English - a warm, casual North American and friendly, sophisticated 'international.'
A select list of clients includes: Swarovski, United Nations, UCLA, Calm.com, EmberLab Games, Hitachi, The American Museum of Natural History, Johns Hopkins, Enterprise Bank, Travel & Leisure, belimobilgue.com, and many others.
Check out Kena on PS5 where you'll hear Emiko's composition and singing. Emiko is also part of the Southeast Asian Story Trust for Disney Animation's Raya and the Last Dragon and voiced one of the Featurettes for Raya on Disney +.
