I am a Korean American and I was born in Seoul, South Korea. I was adopted at 14 months old to a family that I love more than I could ever explain. They are my life and reason why I am here today. <3
I went to the Kansas City Art Institute and graduated with a BFA with an emphasis in painting; I am an artist/painter. I like painting landscapes and I like painting in abstraction.

:) I hope that what I create can make an impact on people and they feel something real and emotional. I would like to create something that lasts longer than myself; an idea, or a book, or a work of art.
I Like to work hard and I strive to be the best at whatever it is that I do. I believe in the idea that once I start something, I finish it until the end.
Really, I am just like you. I'm trying to get things in order with my life into a good direction, taking the necessary gradual steps while being patient and happy with life.

Food: I enjoy GOOD FOOD!!! Not fast food! I've eaten so many different things and I will try anything at least once.
I can truthfully say that I have not had Taco Bell, Wendys, Burger King, Popeyes, Churches, KFC, Arbys in over 10 years now. McDonalds somehow got me earlier this year. :/ I just was so hungry! You are what you eat!
