Author Bio


DSC_0057

I was born in Pusan, South Korea (Busan if you are Korean) and was left on a street when I was 3 years old. I was adopted and lived my early childhood in Jackson, Mississippi which was… interesting. I moved to Memphis, TN around the first grade I believe and although similar in some ways, Memphis was very different in others. My adopted parents are white, my mom is a writer and my father is a doctor, and I have an adopted sister (SK as well) and a white adopted brother. I am the middle child.

I grew up playing competitive soccer, golf, and gymnastics. I hate baseball, so I guess I will never be “American.” Something about small hard objects being thrown at my face does not appeal to me. I was never tall enough, when I was young, and did not get picked often to play basketball. They would say “we will takkkkkkeeee… Cindy!” “DAMMIT!” Growing up with all white friends and black school mates was a bummer because I was generally in the lower 25% in height and weight. A fact that was readily apparent in physical altercations, but I will say that I gave as good as I got. I grew up white, which really just is the simple truth. I didn’t even eat Asian food, and yes I say Asian here because I wasn’t Korean at the time.

I attended the University of Tennessee at Knoxville and quickly went from a good student to a below average student. Mainly because for some reason to do well in school you have to attend class, a concept that passed me by. I did not do well in college mostly because of anger at my birth mom, which I discovered in 2000. I still have not met her or talked to her and she has kept me from ever meeting my older sister, whom I didn’t know existed till 2000 as well. It took me 12 years to move past that. I still like soju though… so at least I have a comforting companion.

I enjoy writing, poetry, history, animal shows, ESPN, a few regular shows, and I also LOVE Anthony Bourdain. If I could meet him I would, he has inspired me in many ways. I would also love to meet Robert Jordan, W.E.B. Griffin, and Raymond E. Feist, my three favorite authors. Unfortunately I will have to wait a bit to meet Jordan, RIP we will always miss you Robert. Your light still shines.

Currently I work in information technology under the yoke of Corporate Rule… but maybe one day I will be able to be a real writer. Right now I do not consider myself a writer at all, in fact I would say I am an amateur pretending to be a writer. I will accept the title of blogger though, that I suppose I have earned. I enjoy scotch, 12 years or even older if I can afford it. Famous Grouse is my favorite brand because it is cheap, but if I could drink Macallen every day I would. Unfortunately my Crohn’s keeps me from drinking too much of that, probably a good thing.

What else, this is beginning to sound pretty frivolous, I like debate and I admire conviction and passion in anyone. I dislike people that throw facts around without basis, or that try to validate themselves by throwing up hypotheticals, that to me is the most annoying thing ever. I guess I am more human than I thought.

I currently live in Colorado with my wife and two daughters. It snows here. I hate snow. Anyways, that is pretty much me.

  4. Your tagline about offending people made me smile. Oddly enough, in my entry about personal blogging, after the part about the train perverts, I originally had a sentence that said, “The only thing I can promise is that sooner or later, something I write will offend you or tick you off.” Only reason I deleted that sentence is because it’s interesting to me to see how people handle it when it happens. Had one blog buddy of 10 years blow a gasket because I said those Christmas “family newsletters” people put in their cards were narcissistic. Oy!

  24. Thanks for following my blog. Your bio is refreshingly honest. I don’t like baseball either, yet I have a soft spot for the Redskins, I guess cause the couldn’t win the World Series for so many years, and then they finally did. (probably also has a lot to do with living near Boston)
    Another thing we have in common is that we both live in snowy climates and don’t like snow. I came up to Boston from MD when I was 18 and I have chosen to stay here ever since. But I really don’t like cold weather and snow. Go figure.
    Best wishes to you and your family!

  25. Thank you for sharing your writings on your blogs.
    This about page was refreshing. It’s always good to see people who made the right choices no matter what life threw at them, stayed true to their beliefs and passion and moved on. Cheers for that.

    Keep inspiring people and never hesitate to call yourself a real writer. There are so many books and sites out there that are written only for the search engines and higher traffic, or to delude people, to take their money. And they have no value.
    Your writing, however, matters. It’s written with passion – the most important ingredient, shared with people, and is being read all the time. If there’s a positive feedback from your readers and you inspire them, then it’s all worth it.

    Keep up the good work and stay opinionated. That’s an important and rare quality these days.
    I’ll stop by often to check out what’s new.

    Best wishes :)

  39. Have not had a chance to dig into your blogs yet, but am intrigued from your bio. Grit and showing our true selves is pretty much the most authentic thing we can do here on the Internet. I have just started up my blog (about dreams) again and am inspired by others with the drive to write. I was born in America and grew up in Detroit, MI… I also hate (strong word – more like avoid if at all possible) baseball and snow. I do seek out Asian food :-) and have just read and enjoyed Roy Choi’s “LA Son” auto-bio/cookbook. You should check it out. He is honest and lays it out there in a gritty yet friendly style. I have yet to try any of the recipes but would love it if someone else might cook them up for me. I also would love to take a food truck tour in LA and a music tour in Nashville/Memphis. Seems like when I travel, I go further afield than the US.

  46. Hello! Apologies for this inevitable message to you. It is exciting to meet a fellow writer. Whether it’s your career or not, if you have it inside yourself, then you are that which you embody. So write away! I rather like the fact that you are an IT man hoping to become a writer, because that is what I am also. The irony is that I’m not much taken by technological bits.

  81. Thank you for visiting my blog, and for the follow. That was one of the more interesting bios I’ve read. Your wit and dry humor is funny. I’ll stop by often to see what new discoveries you make.

  83. Thanks for following my blog. Interesting that national identity is tied to a sport… I’m basically interested in – no sport to the extent that I follow it. Does that remove national identity and make me a citizen of the world?
