I am a writer, singer-songwriter, poet, mom, seeker, daydreamer, and cheerleader of the human spirit. I grew up in the Unification Church, a new religious movement, which taught me many things, including random Korean words. But most of all, helped me develop an appreciation for people of all different faiths and backgrounds. I have a special place in my heart for the quirky, odd, and sincere people who dare to live their lives outside the accepted norm, even if they sometimes wish they could be "normal."
My writing often touches on themes of identity, gratitude, and the many paradoxes of life, especially in the search for truth. Writing, whether it be a song or an essay, has always been like a prayer-- to a higher power, to myself, to whatever connects one heart to another. On the page is where I am able to make sense of who I am and where I ponder the big questions and the never ending answers. I have been writing since I knew how, and received my B.A. in English at Temple University with a focus on creative writing. My creative work has been featured in literary journals including The Rain, Party, & Disaster Society, and Red Fez, and I am currently a contributing writer at DPlife.info and onmogul.com.
My life, as well as my writing, is a work in progress. There is always a new project on the horizon, whether it be a new book idea, making an album with my husband, gearing up for the next NaNoWriMo, or finger painting with the kids. I try to find a balance between the big fabulous dreams, and the small daily moments that lead me there.
I happily live with my husband, two sons, and parents in law in New Jersey. I am perpetually waiting for summer-- or if it's summer, I'm at the beach.
