Before there were words, there was music.
Freedom made her theatrical debut at age four. And before she retired from the theater in 1996, she had appeared in more than 100 shows, including The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, Annie, The Mikado, The Rocky Horror Show, A Chorus Line, Barefoot in the Park, and more.
When Freedom wasn't acting she was singing, fronting her own band at the age of 14, and shared the stage with country music dignitaries such as Dottie West, The Gatlin Brothers, Little Jimmy Dickens, George Jones, Randy Travis, and Kitty Wells.
"I lost the ability to sing - and speak - in the early nineties, but found my true voice, writing, in the silence that followed."
- Freedom Ahn
Freedom is also the founder and Chief Marketing Officer for Essex Marketing, providing expert digital marketing to individuals, businesses, and agencies worldwide.
She is an active member of the Dramatists Guild of America, the Writers Guild of America, the Society of Professional Journalists, and the American Society of Journalists and Authors.
She lives a few minutes south of Detroit, Michigan with her husband, their three Japanese dogs, and four very-well-traveled cats.
Freedom holds a black belt in Wing Chung Kung Fu as well a 2nd-degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do.
She has been presented to HRH Elizabeth II and The Duke of Edinburgh, waltzed with The Prince Andrew and met The Queen Mother by accident while staying at the same hotel.
...and once upon a time, in the hallway of a sleepy dinner theater, Freedom danced with Dean Martin (as he sang Inamorata just loud enough for her to hear).
