Su Hwang, Co-founder | Co-director
Enneagram 9 | Libra sun | Taurus moon | Leo rising | Wood Tiger: Su is the semi-touchy feely Unemployable aka Failed Artist of the two, usually daydreaming about world peace & other idealistic shit. As a result, she's pretty useless most of the time & is legit grateful to be partnered with a Strategic Mastermind. She enjoys day drinking, ill-timed Netflix binges, dismantling white surpremacy & scheming implausible exit strategies from the hellscape that is our fucked up country.
