Biography

My name is Isara Suntichotinun but I prefer to be called Koy. Born in Bangkok, Thailand, I moved to San Diego, California at the age of four. My family and I moved again to Boiling Springs, South Carolina where I finished high school at South Carolina Governor's School for the Arts and Humanities. I spent two years at School of the Art Institute of Chicago majoring in Fine Arts and I'm now currently back in San Diego attending Grossmont College, planning to transfer to SDSU.

You can usually find me at my parent's restaurant located in La Jolla, CA called Aroi Cafe!
