Guest Post by Derek Kan
Hi, AAM FAM! My name is Derek, and I hail from New York City. I work at a video entertainment company called DramaFever (now Warner Brothers), but some of you may know me better as Derek from Magnetic North. Like most everyone here, I'm a fan of Angry Asian Man, as well as Usher, and this little-known show called Game of Thrones. If there were ever an episode of GoT starring an Asian Khaleesi riding a dragon singing Usher's "Let it Burn," well damnit that would be a dream come true.
Speaking of dreams, nearly everyone at one point is faced with that career decision of passion versus practicality — the dream job or the job that, you know, actually makes money. Once you start down the latter path, the harder it becomes to ever do anything else. Comfort and responsibility really set in and the courage to leave that behind tends to dwindle away… But for my cousin Andrew, he refuses to let that happen.
