  • Annie, a multi-passionate creative and self-taught cook, has looked at cooking and baking as a form of art for as long as she can remember.
  • She spends most of her freetime learning the properties and functions of ingredients popular around the world and then figures out unique ways to merge them.
  • She once drove for over two hours just to check out a bakery that sold blood orange-poppy seed-matcha cupcakes.


While joining Static Media in 2022 was Annie's introduction into the world of professional writing, she has been passionate about crafting harmonic sentences and discovering captivating new words since was a child. Annie worked as an editor for Korean photography blog Humans of Seoul, and after landing a job at a high-end hair salon, she began managing and writing the company's sitewide newspaper. There, she reported hair trends, interviewed salon professionals, and learned valuable research skills.


Annie received her license in cosmetology from the Empire School of Cosmetology in 2012. Although she loved her initial career path, Annie felt that she could help women in other ways that were more suited to her skillset. In 2018, she obtained a degree in diagnostic medical sonography from the Pittsburgh Career Institute, and from there took several writing courses through her local community college.
