A hapa Yonsei (fourth-generation) Japanese and Mexican American living in Carson, CA. I am a full-time college student majoring in Industrial Design with emphasis on Transportation. My username is thought up of my first and middle names as they both start with "K" and it's to the power of 2.

I am a active volunteer at the Japanese American National Museum in the Little Tokyo District of Downtown Los Angeles. I volunteer at the museums' Minabi and Sumi Hirasaki National Resource Center researching Issei immigration records and internment camp records for visitors and members. I contribute postings of public and private events for the museum on Discover Nikkei and Twitter.
