XK: What is your name? Can you tell us about your profession?
PC: My name is Pat, I am an actor and singer, I have a rock band called “CHANUDOM”
I was born in Trat in the East of Thailand. I grew up there, but after university moved to Bangkok.
XK: How would you describe the musical side of yourself?
PC: I would say my musical inspiration is Theatrical Rock, a kind of glam rock, with all the outfits and stage play. My favorite Thai artist is a country singer Poompaung, the Queen of Country in Thailand. She died around 20 years ago but she is a legend here, everyone knows her. I grew up listening to her and seeing her on TV. She was the artist that made me want become performer. Also, every time my parents had a party, they would call me and say “Pat on stage!”. They loved having friends in our home and hosting music and dance parties. That made me confident about myself and my skills on stage.

25 years after the Rwandan Genocide, victims and their children fight to move forward.
the line between the reader and writer has blurred - and so have the distinction among tweet, blog post, facebook, newspaper story, magazine article, book, the line between professionals and amateurs, the boundaries delineating for-profit, public, and non-profit media, the line between old media and new media - practically beyond recognition.
But more than ever we can still crave for latest updates or ever-changing trends. And share it.
A master passion is the love of news.
here, and only now. We produce our blend of newly-shot original interviews, film footage, portraits of artists and talents.

We believe an artist's work should intersect with today’s most relevant issues and concerns.
We want to be there when it happens.
And of course we want to be there first.
