I’ve worked in food service, interned for an internet start-up, volunteered for a couple media watchdog groups, started a blog about trying to clean up my childhood home, and remained active in several student organizations as an undergraduate at UCLA.
I like reading and writing about things related to pop culture (primarily film and television), race and ethnic relations in the United States, minimalism, consumption, and organizing.
I was born and raised in a small agricultural town in California’s central valley. My rock-guitar-playing sister is nine years younger than me, and my Filipino parents love singing and playing music every chance they can get. It wasn’t until I graduated high school that I left my hometown, and I’ve lived in Los Angeles and San Diego since. On my spare time I enjoy following my awesome boyfriend around to find the best strawberry vendor at farmer’s markets, then we take pictures of the ever-delicious meals we share together.
About the Blog
Darianenabor.com began in 2009 when I interned for Jun Loayza. He bought the domain, hosted it, and made me blog. I had no idea what to write about in order to shape my “personal brand.” I had no focus and no organization, making me write sporadically and about seemingly random topics. When I finally found a focus I decided instead to start a new blog.
Then in August 2011, Jun turned over the domain to me and I’m taking this as an opportunity to start fresh and easy. I think I get it now. I hope I do anyway. We’ll see.
