Hi! I am Mark Kim-Mulgrew, a software engineer, writer, and musician living in Seattle, WA with a human and three cats. By day, I work on building an eCommerce infrastructure to reduce shipping distances of items purchased on Amazon India. By night, I am one half of musical duo Octopus Emoji and the whole of Badness 10000. Somewhere in between, I edit and teach technical writing but mostly write not-so-technical pieces, notwithstanding the occasional technical blogging.

I was a 2016 AAAS Mass Media Science and Engineering fellow, with bylines in Nautilus Magazine, New Scientist, NPR, Quanta Magazine, and WIRED. In the distant past, I taught college-level mathematics courses, ran a STEM outreach program, and prepared expository notes for research seminars.
