Bie was born in 1985 in Chiang Mai, Thailand. His nickname is Bie comes from his full nickname "Gumbie", which translates to Dragonfly. He has an elder sister named Mangpor whose name also has the same meaning. Bie attended high school at Montfort College, at Chiang Mai, and he was in the Science/Mathematics program. After that he attended King Mongkut's University of Technology Thonburi at Bangkok, receiving a Bachelor of Engineering ( Mechatronics Engineering) degree in 2009. During his college years, he decided to audition for the third season of The Star. During college, he spent time both studying and working hard as an actor and singer in the entertainment business.
The Star 2006
In early 2006, Bie auditioned for the third season of The Star. Even though he did not impress all three commentators, he consistently received the highest number of votes each week. He made it through to become one of the two final contestants, but he did not win the competition. Immediately after becoming runner-up in The Star 3 competition, Bie signed a contract with Exact and GMM Grammy.
2006–2007: Bie the star
Bie is a singer and actor of Exact, under GMM Grammy. After his victory on The Star, he began training under a management agency GMM Grammy. His first single, "I Need Somebody", was released in Thailand in October 2006. After the song peaked on the radio charts for many weeks, it received the award as the number one Love song single of 2006 from Star Entertainment Awards, Seed Awards, and In Young Generation Choice Awards.
Besides his career as a singer Bie also took time to star in his first drama series called "Roy Adeed Hang Ruk". It is now in many languages including the Philippines, Cambodian and Indian. With his naturally humorous character, he also has starred in the ongoing sitcom called "Nut Kub Nut" since early 2007 to present. In May 2007, Bie starred in his second drama series called "Hua Jai Sila" with Fang Pichaya.
Following the success of his debut as a singer and actor, Bie was offered by "Thakonkiat Veerawan" managing director of Exact & Scenario, to star in the Musical theatre "Banlang Mek" as youngest son, Pakorn, starring alongside Sinjai Plengpanich, one of Thailand leading actresses. The musical was extremely successful, with 47 performances, and trained him to become one of Thailand's leading stage stars.
2008 : Most popular star
Bie's second album, I Love You Too, was released on 26 March 2008, and his single "Jungwa Huajai" (Rhythm of the Heart) peaked at number one on many charts in Thailand. The second single from this album called "Someone" also peaked at number one at EFM and Hotwave charts. Furthermore, this album ranked as one of the best-selling albums of GMM Grammy of the year.
In May, Bie had his first solo concert, "Love Attack". This concert was held in Thailand's biggest concert hall "Impact Arena". This was very surprising to many because he had only been in the entertainment business for only under 2 years. However ticket sales were through the roof and the concert was sold out in 2 days. A second show was thus added for the viewers. His popularity as a singer also won him Singer of the Year Award at the Top Awards and Popular Artist of the Year at Siam Dara Awards.
In August, due to his stage charisma, that he beam and glow on the stage, Bie returned to the stage in an even bigger musical, Behind the Painting (Khang Lang Pharp), with 49 performances. This was his first lead role in a musical, even though he had only recently began his singing and acting career, especially for musical theatre. In this show, his role was a young Thai student studying abroad in Japan who falls in love with a dynasty woman older than he is, played by Pat Suthasinee who is known as the musical princess of Thailand.
This year his career won him Popular Star of the Year at Nine Entertain Awards. He also won the Influential People of The Year award in Thailand's social circle, by Position and Siamrath.

This drama series was not a production of Exact, it was his first time working with "Lakorn Thai" at Channel 3.

Prajan See Roong also awarded Mental Health Media Award 2009, TV Drama of the Year from Nine Entertain Awards 2010 and The Best Drama Award from Siam Dara Stars Awards 2010.

This year he also awarded Most Popular Star of the Year for 2 Consecutive Years at Nine Entertain Awards. and Star Popular Vote from Siamdara Star Awards 2010,
On the 2nd of March, a quiz show called Fan Pan Tae aired an episode on Bie. The quiz show was extremely popular, and tested the contestants' wits and knowledge about Bie. While the questions were said to be "ridiculously hard", a woman named Apichaya Chuankao (อภิชญา จวนเก่า) could answer every question on Bie, with an example being "From this picture (which was completely black and white, and showed only Bie's posture), which song is he dancing to?" The final catch of the program was when Bie actually appeared and awarded Apichaya personally- to the surprise of everyone including the audience.
Bie released his first single "Glua Tee Nai" (กลัวที่ไหน: I'm not afraid) and soon released A single called "Rak Na Ka" (รักนะคะ: Love you) from his new album ' Rak Na Ka ' which will be released on the 10 March 2011 and the VCD is on the 31 March 2011.
