Hey, it’s me. Thanks for visiting my site! I’ve been putting most of my efforts into collecting up all my old writing but I figured I should add a few more mundane details too.

So where to start? I was named after Captain Kirk (as in ‘of the Starship Enterprise’) so if that’s not nerd cred, I’m not sure what is. I’m a yonsei, which means a fourth generation Japanese-American, which means all my grandparents were born in the US.

I was born and raised in Los Angeles county, not far from where the opening to Back to the Future was filmed. I lived there until I moved up to the Bay Area to go to school at Stanford, where I studied computer science and fiction writing.

I now live and work in San Francisco and am probably going to have a really unsatisfying end to this paragraph.
