Walk and Talk Interview Series on my Youtube!

I started a YouTube Channel one year ago because I had the idea and vision to share stories visually. This channel is meant to capture all of the things I have in my brain, and the things and people I experience that I want to remember and immortalize in video. I have been able to meet some great people and it’s only in the last…

Confessions of (Asian American) Hollywood Assistants

Growing up on the East Coast, I knew what the concept of celebrities and Hollywood was, but didn’t really know much about the business of Entertainment, let alone the career paths it offered. Now that I’m in Los Angeles, I’ve met a lot of people in the Entertainment industry who work in Talent Agencies- the management companies that handle and facilitate the careers of all…

Deepen your relationship in 10 ways

My rare specimen (my boyfriend) and I had a wonderful extended fourth of July weekend in Desert Hot Springs this past weekend. I came back SO relaxed and filled with so much love. Before I went, I was in a bit of a funk and wasn’t much fun to be around but the trip helped put everything in perspective and reaffirmed the relationship we have…

Crazy Rich Asians full cast with predictions- who is playing who?

As I write this, Crazy Rich Asians the movie is in production in Singapore (also in Malaysia). I wrote a blogpost on who I would cast in the movie four years ago (August 2013) when I first read the book that summer. Then it was announced that it would be in fact made into a movie. As you can imagine, I was more than ecstatic…

Why I REALLY moved to LA from NYC

As you may or may not know… I lived in New York for 6 of my most formative years. After a one week visit to both LA and SF (for 48 hours) back in April 2015, I came back to NYC only to decide to quit my job and move to the west coast. Two years ago this month (May 2015 to be exact), I…

Acting in short films with Ami Park and Angie Kim

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen me and two other girls in mini short films. On paper we’re three women with names that start with A. We’re all Korean American. We’re all cute and spunky (or at least that’s what people tell us). Beyond that, we’re women who have not seen many people who look like us on screens and decided to do…

We insertVerbhere together relationships

I mentioned this to Rowena awhile ago when I slept over at her place and we hung out, but I’m reminded of what I said time and time again as I meet more and more people here in LA. I have this theory that the more verbs you can do with other people in your life, the more fulfilling, full, inspiring, joyful and deep the…

What dating a non-Asian taught me about myself

A few months ago I wrote a blogpost on why I’ll never use dating apps again. (There was even a video made of it). I’ll have you know that I haven’t used a dating app in months/ever since because like I mentioned in the post…I really do believe that you meet the right people when you’re just doing your thing, becoming your best self. I don’t know…

Online to IRL connections- My meetup in SF!

Awhile ago in this blog post STTA: The truth about social media, I mentioned that despite the pitfalls of social media, connecting through the internet has been a great/easy way for me to keep in touch with people who are interested in doing so. It also gives me the opportunity to connect with people who I otherwise would not have met. If you follow me…

How to tell that you like someone

I love humans. I love talking to people, hearing their stories, asking hard questions, learning from them…. but it takes a special kind of person for me to admit that I really like them. So what does it look like/feel when I like someone? In business and life? Platonic or romantic? Most of the below, if not all: I’m happy with myself… but sharing that happiness…
