The origins of the name Skyrien has been lost to time, but since 1997, it's been used with various spellings, including "Skyiren", "Skyrein", and then finally, "Skyrien". I wanted an internet handle I could use without adding any tacky numbers like "awesomedude85", and something had near zero search results, which I took as an indication that I could claim it as uniquely mine.

@skyrien is my online handle. I've used it in various online fora since at least 1997, and continue to do so. Having grown up with it, I consider it the internet representation of me.

Name origins

Skyrien isn’t something you’re going to find in a dictionary (yet), but most certainly, you’ll find a few instances on an internet search. I coined the name in the 1990s while growing up in Korea and took it as my internet handle. I wanted a name that I could use universally, and so far, I’ve succeeded. :)

In real life, I’m Alexander Joo. I had long considered myself a Midwesterner (having grown up mostly in and around the Chicago), but since 2008, I’ve been living in Seattle, and realized, no I’m far more at home here, where I can feel at home with my progressive principles. I’ve been living in Seattle, WA since 2008.

My academic background is in electrical engineering, computer science, and biomedical engineering at the University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign Class of 2008.

In real life

I'm Alexander Joo. I have a better profile on my blog here for now.
