Following her muse, Chubai then started singing jazz, inspired by classic vocalists such as Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday as well as more modern singers like Cassandra Wilson. Although clearly meant for the stage, Chubai worked a variety of day jobs while polishing her talent. After working in public relations for years and moonlighting as a jazz singer, Chubai then fell into a very different career.
Chubai's singing jump-started her work in television. With a high profile as one of Edmonton's top jazz singers and numerous televised performances, it was only a matter of time before Chubai was catapulted into the world of television.

Chubai is currently employed by City TV Vancouver as a TV Host for Breakfast Television (Channel 13, Shaw HD 214) and as the Westcoast correspondent for CityLine, City TV's National lifestyle show (check local listings).
A natural performer, it wasn't long before Chubai hit the big screen with principal roles in movies and television. Her credits include movies such as Eclipse, Mission Impossible 4, Fantastic Four 2, Sandlot 3, made for TV movies including Witness: The Amber Frey Story, as well as the popular TV series Stargate SG-1 and The Dead Zone. Chubai has also appeared in a number of national commercial spots for BMW, Suave Shampoo, Bud Light, Microsoft and West Jet to name a few.
