Kazumi hails from the our neighbors to the north. She was born and raised in Vancouver, BC. Her first performance took place in a talent show on board a cruise ship at the age of 9, and from there on in she has loved being on the stage.
Initially trained to be a ballet dancer, she attended the pre-professional ballet programs with The Goh Ballet, The Richmond Academy of Dance, and The Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet while performing in musicals and television on the side. In 2007, she auditioned and was chosen to be a competitor on the CBC show Triple Sensation produced by Garth Drabinsky. After making it as a top six finalist on the show she knew she wanted to delve into all aspects of the entertainment business.

While excellent craftsmanship isn’t all that rare in the brony community, SilverSlinger has some impressive skills that set him apart from the rest. Rather than using paper, fabric, or clay, he performs intricate work with various metals (sometimes accented with beautiful stones or enameling) and creates absolutely stunning pieces of jewelry!
SilverSlinger became a brony back in February of 2012, under the alias of ChaoticBrony.
After seeing how much My Little Pony has inspired so many to create such beautiful works of art, he decided that he too wanted to contribute to the brony fandom. Therefore, he combined his love of My Little Pony with his 10 years of jewelry designing experience and has made many beautiful designs that are worn by thousands of bronies worldwide.
