About Me

Hi, my name is Gretchen and I am an in-betweener.

I exist in between childhood and adulthood, naiveté and maturity, spontaneity and responsibility.

I am a starter of many projects, and only sometimes a finisher of them.


(I wrote this book ^^ You can check it out here.)
I’m between Asian and White, split my childhood between different countries growing up, and I am constantly — constantly — between hair colors.

And I live on that lovely plane that exists between straight sized and plus sized clothing. (Well, since having my baby it’s been much more on the plus-sized spectrum, but I’m also currently working on that.)

I am exuberant and awkward, enthusiastic and neurotic, extroverted and introspective, cautious and carefree, and… well, I think you get the picture. I could probably constitute an entire dictionary’s worth of pretentious antonyms and contradictions all on my own.

Now, some other facts you were just dying to know about yours truly:

I am 30 years old, I work for Yelp (and have the most awesome job in the world), I am truly obsessed with Harry Potter, and my entire world is run by two adorable miniature schnauzers and my baby girl (born August 30th, 2017), Penelope.

We call her Penny. She’s the best.

Thanks for stopping by!
