My love for ancient culture does not begin or end with Korea, my first internship was in Athens, Greece. Moving to Athens at the age of 20 definitely shaped what would be my work and food life, after all I worked as a food packaging designer. One job at a time, one project here and there, and I slowly started to collect experience living in far places and learning from my friends and neighbors the best of the best. I share what they share with me with you.
