About

She leads global communications and public relations at the Center for Future Defense Technology and Entrepreneurship, a global hub accelerating startups in aerospace and defense based in Seoul, Korea.

I was born in NYC and grew up in the East Coast and South Korea. I like to listen to soul classics. Christmas is my favorite holiday. I speak Korean, and I learned Mandarin in high school, but it’s so hard to keep up.

This website is a personal playbook enabling movement at scale on sustainability and security challenges. I shared interesting labs, books, a community I run, and lessons I learned along the way.

I lived in DC at the U.S. Department of State, where I worked at the Office of Korean Affairs, Office of Analytics, Office of Consular Affairs, and Policy Planning Staff, Secretary of State on U.S. foreign policy priorities, data-driven digital diplomacy campaigns, and partnerships with government agencies and private entities. In South Korea, she consulted with VC firms. I’m currently at the Center for Future Defense Technology and Entrepreneurship, a hub accelerating startups in aerospace and defense based in Seoul, Korea.

This is an open and an evolving blog. I always welcome your comments and input.
