• My specialisms
BTS, Squid Game, BLACKPINK, Parasite — the Korean culture hype isn't slowing down any time soon, making it a ripe opportunity for publications to grow their readership.
From K-Pop to K-Drama, Korean celebrities to Hallyu's growth, I cover all corners Korean media. 12 years of "fangirling" and time spent living in Seoul bring a wealth of knowledge and understanding to my pieces. Alongside the big names, I'll give you the buzz on the rising stars with sprawling fandoms, all on the verge of becoming the west's next big hit.
After several years spent writing full-time for a pop culture news outlet, I'll bring you a fresh perspective but still fit into your writing roster like I've always been there.
My key areas of interest are books, video games, and fashion. When I know my stuff, I also love to cover film, television, and US celebrities.
A decade of marketing for brands big and small has given me a unique perspective on writing about lifestyle.
Whether you're publishing food, travel, productivity, careers, or anything in between, I'll engage and inform your readers in a way that gets them scrolling for more.
Marketing is my day job, and I have my finger on the pulse. Nothing going on in content, copywriting, SEO, or social media gets past me.
In particular, if you're looking for a story that looks at business and marketing from a timely, trending, or cultural lens, I'll jump on it in a heartbeat.
