Jinna Vorhees – Copy Editor
Jinna honed her grammar skills while growing up in Seoul, Korea as an expat, and yes, she speaks English well, and no, it is not her second language. Now living in Los Angeles, she likes to tease her friends with social media announcements of random B-list star spottings. And she once changed her own spark plugs and is now building a bicycle from spare parts.
Jyvonne Haskin – Former Contributor
Jyvonne Haskin is a writer, producer, cellist and singer living in Los Angeles. She takes pleasure in exhaustively researching the things she loathes and loves, and has accepted that she’ll never really understand why “Becker” lived on network tv longer than “Arrested Development.”
