Ellen is a former lawyer who loves K-pop, K-dramas, and cooking shows, but her favorite thing to do is to try new places to eat good food. A Gen Xer who grew up with MTV, Ellen credits A-ha’s iconic Take On Me video as the inspiration for Colliding Worlds. Originally from New York City, Ellen lives in Rockville, Maryland, with her husband, three human children, and two dog children, and has yet to satisfy her quest for a decent bagel.
