I’m a forty-something, Korean American born and raised in Seoul.  I spent my teenage years through early 30s in Los Angeles with a year gig in New York City for good measure.  I lived in Portland, Oregon for most of my 30s and recently settled down in the suburbs of Philadelphia with my husband and two daughters.  Photography has been one of my biggest passions for the past 15 years and counting.  I’ve been always a writer, creating poems starting at the age of five then venturing into short stories, a screenplay, and a personal weblog.   I hope to make the world a better place with my images and words.  Cheers to life!  Love, Hazel
