About beanbrain

“beanbrain” is a personal blog. More specifically, it is an online space where I publish original content: creative and personal, fiction and nonfiction, written and visual.

As a:

  • Closet creative
  • Pop culture enthusiast
  • Foodie
  • Would-be adventurer, and
  • Someone prone to extreme introspection

I need a space where I can showcase my work and share my thoughts. “beanbrain” is that space.

About Sarina C.B.

Processed with VSCOcam with 4 preset

Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, I’m an Emeryville-based freelance writer and photographer whose interests and creative aesthetic span an extensive spectrum.

I graduated from Santa Clara University, where I obtained a degree in English and Communication with an emphasis in journalism. While on-campus, I held a slew of writing positions on student publications, including Online Editor and Scene Editor for The Santa Clara, SCU’s undergraduate-run newspaper, and spearheading the first social media campaign for SCU’s Residence Life.

By day, I’m a Human Resources professional at macys.com in San Francisco. By night (and on the weekends), when I’m not writing or photographing the people and places I love, I spend my time binge-watching shows on Netflix, tackling new recipes, dabbling in music, and hanging out with my husband Reggie and puppy Henri.
