Eugene grew up in Atlanta in a culturally rich Korean-Puerto Rican family, and for the past nine years, he has lived permanently in the city. He works in PR and marketing for beauty brands that are primarily led by Black women and LGBTQ individuals. Alongside beauty-focused PR, he’s also helped organize fundraising for nonprofits like Lost-n-Found Youth. Eugene is recently recovering from heart failure, having spent over a month in the hospital for treatment. He is now well and focused on work and restoring his health while exploring the constantly growing city and setting up shop in coffee shops all over Atlanta.
