About Me


Serving my country. Up in arms. Locked and loaded(?)


I'm a nerd at heart, especially when it comes to cool gadgets. I love all things Apple, which can be clearly seen by the wealth of Apple products sprawled around in my room. Then you'll also notice some football, smelly old cleats, helmet, and some pads. I play amateur football (American kind) on the weekends. I was born in Korea, raised in California. Graduated UCI with Business Econ degree, had a small taste of traveling the east coast of US and I caught the travel bug then. Since coming back to Korea, I've been visiting many places that I haven't visited as a child.


Live in peace and harmony. Growing up I thought these words were just cliches, but there's so much meaning behind those words. Ask me about them when you visit, I'll probably ramble for good hour or so.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Free meal, my parents have the best Shabu restaurant in the city. Not sure if I can lend you a couch though.


None, but looking forward to writing something here soon!!

Music, Movies, and Books

YES. I love all three. Although I have to say music is my favorite. It follows me everywhere, from sunrise til sunset.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I published a research paper (in systems engineering) when I was in high school (17). I have since changed my career path.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you the language (Korean or English), teach you football (both kinds), but I'm young, so there's more for me to learn than to teach.
