Leadership Team
Sohn graduated from Cal State Long Beach in 2015 with his BA in English Rhetoric and Composition and certificate in Technical and Professional Writing. He is currently finishing up his Masters in English with a special research focus on writing across the curriculum in 2017. During his undergrad, Sohn worked as a Proposal Writer for a nonprofit organization that offers nontraditional educational classes and resources for underserved youth and communities. He later served as a technical reviewer for two years for Engineers Without Borders prior to joining ESW. During his years of volunteering, Sohn became extremely interested in the intersection between inter-disciplinary action and sustainable communities.
 
Seeing this need, Sohn helped start a new ESW chapter at CSULB during his junior year. He loved working with engineers on the other side of campus and often found himself spending more time in the engineering lab than the English department. He became part of the chapter’s leadership first as the VP of Information Management, then later as Chapter President. As a Development Coordinator, he hopes to continue his passion on a national-level working to expand ESW’s reach to help more communities become sustainable (and also to make more awesome engineering friends). 
 
Sohn currently works as a technical editor for the College of Engineering at CSULB. Outside of working, Sohn loves to run, read, write, teach, and consuming copious amounts of caffeine.
