Early life and education
Mondia was born on July 28, 1975, in Alert Bay, British Columbia, Canada. He was raised in an environment that fostered his love for the arts, particularly music, and dance. His paternal grandfather, a musician who played the accordion, mandolin, and harmonica, inspired him to pursue his passion. Growing up, Mondia was exposed to various genres of music and attended operas with his mother. From an early age, he performed in front of audiences, whether it was singing in a choir, taking ballet classes, or performing on stage//screen.
His childhood was marred by bullying and abuse, pushing him to the brink of despair and even surviving a suicide. However, his resilience shone through as he triumphed over these challenges, emerging stronger and more determined than ever. Throughout his journey, he fearlessly delved into a multitude of artistic disciplines, ranging from dance and singing to acting. With a thirst for growth, Mondia took sporadic classes to refine his skills, even venturing into the world of stand-up comedy. It was through these explorations that he discovered his innate talent and deep passion for bringing joy and laughter to others, defying the obstacles that crossed his path.
Mondia began acting in 1986 and has since appeared in numerous TV series, films, and theatre productions.

He also modeled as Santa Claus for a cover shoot for the Guardian's 2008 G2 Christmas Special Edition. Additionally, he sang in the LGMC ensemble chorus of David Mcalmont's recorded song titled "The Bishop of New Hampshire."
