JK grew up in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia. Wrote poems since 14. Rather serious child. Went to Canberra Uni. Hung out with postmod types. Started performing. Graduated 1998. Moved to Kuala Lumpur 2000. Got published here, there. Mellowed out. Organised readings. Still writes. Hopefully will publish first "proper" book of poems in 2009. Fingers crossed.
