About me

Gender Female
Location Oakland, CA, United States
Introduction I'm an L.A. native who lived in the Land of the Morning Calm, South Korea, for a bit too long. I had a great time while I was there. I have a B.A. and law degree, but I earned a master's in international studies at Ewha Womans University. It was then I discovered that I love writing, thanks to this blog, and the things that grew out of writing it. For those who need to know where Korea is located. Korea is a peninsula that is split into two countries (North Korea and South Korea). It's located in NE Asia between Japan and Taiwan. It's below the eastern coast of China and Russia. I moved back from NYC in 2011. It was exciting but definitely challenging. I "made" it in NYC and well, as the song says. I'm back in the SF Bay area now. I have led the charge organizing SFTech4Good Meetup since 2011 and working in the tech industry specializing in community management and customer advocacy. Leave a comment to contact me.

Interests travel, cultures, languages, reading.
Favorite Movies Fight Club, Trois couleurs Blue, Trois couleurs Blanc, Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, A Clockwork Orange, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Romeo and Juliet, Breakfast at Tiffanys, Something About Mary, Princes et Princesses
Favorite Music As for music, I like anything that doesn't suck ass, and I mean anything. Thanks to my parents, I don't look at the world strictly through the lens of my race or gender. That means I enjoy music as "predictable" as R&B, blues, jazz and hip-hop yet as "surprising" as heavy metal or country.
Favorite Books Pride and Prejudice, A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, Fight Club, the Harry Potter series, Does America Need a Foreign Policy?, Capitalism. Democracy. and Ralph's Pretty Good Grocery, The Koreans, The Anarchical Society

For your birthday, your aunt gave you a maple syrup dispenser shaped like a rooster. Please write her a thank-you note:

Thanks so much for the creative syrup dispenser. However, you seem to have forgotten that I'm an insulin-dependent diabetic.
