BIO
Sae Hoon Stan Chung
Sae Hoon Stan Chung is an award winning writer and much loved columnist. He was born in Seoul, Korea and raised in Canada. He has written, and spoken widely, in both public and academic forums.

He completed his PhD at the University of British Columbia, and wrote his dissertation on improvisation, performance, and the work of Pauline Oliveros. He is currently Vice President Academic and Applied Research at the College of the Rockies.

When Stan first started writing his columns he didn't think anybody would care to hear about his parents, their struggles, and his upbringing as the son of a Korean-born United Church minister. He never thought his experience extraordinary. Everybody has a story; his story begins and ends just like everyone else's.

Every time he wrote my the heart, from his experiences, and bared his soul, emails poured in. Over the years Stan has formed a strong emotional bond with his readers. He bravely takes on topics like the suicide of a student, the death of his mother, and how his parents abandoned him. Stan discovered the more he risked, the more he connected to his readers and the global community.

Stan continues to takes risks and write his column while trying to balance his work and family life.  He is married with two children. He spends his time between West Kelowna and Cranbrook, BC.
 
"The essays and stories in my books are united by my passion for writing."
