I help people figure out how best to project themselves on the web.

Where are you from?

I was born in Seoul, Korea, then moved to Mississippi, thanks to my doctor-humanitarian mom who wanted to go where the poorest Americans lived. I went to first and second grades in Mound Bayou, a town that was founded by former slaves, and learned how to speak English with a deep Southern accent. After Mississippi, my family moved to a small dusty town in Texas where high school football ruled. By fourth grade, we moved to NYC, and that’s where my parents are still.

What’s your dream vacation?

I’ve been very fortunate in that I’ve been able to travel and live for several months at a time in Europe and Asia, so I don’t think very much about vacations in the traditional sense. What I really enjoy is meeting new people, experiencing their culture, and doing some work with them. Some day, I’d like to go to India, photograph an enormous Hindu wedding, do yoga, and dance all night on a beach in Goa.
