Born in Vancouver, Canada, Christina Park has been around art and letters all her life. Her writing is informed by personal experiences as a second-generation Korean Canadian, as well as by living in Vancouver and Montreal. She was editor of the University of British Columbia’s literary magazine and attended Oxford University. She comes from a family of academics and a notable Korean author: a film adaptation of one of her father’s most well-known works screened at the 1996 Cannes Film Festival and was short-listed for Critics Choice. Outside of her writing pursuits, Christina has worked for both technology start-ups and large financial corporations, including as VP of Marketing for a prominent investment management company. The biggest influences in her life are her husband and daughter. An avid traveler and would-be runner, she is thankful to have run in interesting locales where she could see things up close.
