About me


My name is Jeff Kloythanomsup and I’m a native Californian. I hold a BA in Sociology from San Francisco State University, and have done PG studies in Global Justice at The University of Sheffield. I would consider myself a “computer nerd”, an activist, a dog lover, and a seasoned traveller. I have been working with computers since an early age and have developed very extensive skills in Windows and Linux. When away from the computer, I enjoy travelling both domestically and internationally, and have been to 23+ countries thus far. Another interest of mine is progressive activism, as I am inspired by the topics of: anti-repression, anti-racism, feminism, socialism, drug reform, and migration reform. On the streets, I have livestreamed various protests & rallies, from Oakland, to Occupy Wall Street in NYC, to London. I also enjoy exploring the urban landscape, eating out, camping, and hiking. My current quests are to learn Chef, Python, and Ruby. I currently reside near the beaches of sunny Los Angeles.
