His pas- sion is studying pansori, and getting his foot in the door of the music industry. He spends time eating, writing, taking pictures and finding the golden ratio of so-maek. He’s worked as a bartender, teacher, editor, journalist and, before Korea, at Louis Vuitton. Dan is a Web nerd and Busan resident who has always lived near water. He grew up in Pennsylva- nia, but no, he isn’t Amish. He loves long walks on Haeundae Beach, geeking out in front of his com- puter and sporting Hawaiian shirts each and every Friday. He enjoys these activities even more with a bottle of makgeolli. Dan is our website technician. After living in Korea and Japan for eight years, Matt traded in his T-Money Card for a GSX LE 2013 ski-doo (not literally) and moved to the bus - tling metropolis of Fort St. John, British Columbia, with his wife and two children. He’s a reporter. The temperature is often minus 37, but at least there is no yellow dust. Formerly the Editor-in-Chief, Matt is Groove Korea’s Insight Editor. Christine is an ESL instructor hailing from Toron- to, Canada, and has lived in Korea for almost four years. She currently works at a women’s university in northern Seoul, but her preferred profession would be paid world traveler. In her free time, she writes, takes photos, dives, skis, hikes and attempts to rock climb. She is happy to be a member of the Groove Korea team. Christine Pickering wrote “The ghosts of Seoul” for this month’s issue. Jen is a Korean-American who resides in the city of Gwangju. She is currently working at an animation company while also doing work as a freelance artist whenever she can. Jen hopes to someday change the world with her silly drawings. When she’s not working or trying to improve her skills, she can be found sleeping, watching cartoons or playing video games. Her current addiction is milk tea. Jen contri- butes the monthly comic strip “Dear Korea.” Christine Pickering Jen Lee Canada U.S.
