Own Words

As the story goes, I was born in Korea and left at a police station in Seoul. Eighteen months later I was adopted, and flown to Southern California where I was raised, and currently reside.

My day job revolves around the world of a non-profit where I am part of providing the underdog with opportunities to overcome. It's trying and rewarding and insane and perfectly clear all at the same time. But then again, aren't all of our jobs?

My free time is governed by many passions; so many that it's almost too much for me to keep up with. I continue searching for ways to turn my passions into income sources, but it seems that as soon as a beloved hobby becomes a job, I lose interest.

For now, I brand myself as a photographer, a writer, and an aspiring cook (so much to learn, so many fears to overcome). All three provide me with much needed outlets to express creativity and nurture my imagination.
