David P. Kronmiller
Editor-In-Chief
David P. Kronmiller is the Editor in Chief of the Avocado Jungle, a regular contributor to CNN’s iReport, an independent producer, writer and director with his latest project “and Boris” now online and gaining a great deal of attention.

David got into politics in 2008 officially by blogging in support of now President Barack Obama – covering the election extensively for both his website, The Avocado Jungle, and CNN’s iReport. He volunteers with the group WeChangeLA – often lending his eye behind the camera for their events.

He was raised for some of his youth in the Amazon Jungle while his parents were missionaries, he attended the University of Southern California’s School of Cinema/Television’s Production Program, rising to the top of his program and worked for several years at Sony Pictures Entertainment’s Digital Authoring Center at the ground level of the DVD Industry. He is currently one of the 6 million without day jobs and is looking for permanent work – he hopes that barring the job market opening up that this site, The Avocado Jungle and he and his wife’s producing of “and Boris” will turn into legitimate sources of income.

Joyce Chen
Blogger
Born and raised in Los Angeles, Joyce is a proud Angelino with a penchant for anything scrumptious and undiscovered, be it the newest hole-in-the-wall sushi joint or the latest flavors and trends from local music, film and artistic talents. She has written for Los Angeles Magazine, the Los Angeles Daily News, Citysearch Los Angeles, THEPOPFIX.com and Saturday Night Magazine, and is the current editor-in-chief of USC’s Daily Trojan, as well as the publisher for Bamboo Offshoot, USC’s only Asian Pacific American student publication. Joyce loves writing about all things uncategorized, uncertain, and otherwise indescribable (think: innovative music genres and trends in start-up nonprofit organizations ), though she’s still figuring out how to structure this love into coherent stories. When asked what she is searching for, Joyce says she is constantly on the lookout for that elusive intersection of truth and human compassion.

Comic Strip Writer (Congo and Steve)
Voiceover Artist

J’s creative side began in music as he tried to become a rock star on the guitar. When he needed money, he moved into audio post production for television. Still striving to be creative, he is now a self-described “wanna-be animation writer.” When asked what he is searching for, J replies, “A gig that gives me the opportunity to make people laugh, even though I have less emotion than a Vulcan.” He adds, “If I had a soul it would be tormented.”

Jae does her best to roll with life and even then it knocks her on her ass now and then. She tries to write candidly and cohesively of the mess called “thoughts that happens between my ears”. Most the rest of the time she spends swinging a wrench or pushing buttons in a theatre somewhere in New York City. Jae says she is searching for the joy in all the little things in life… and always a good pairing of wine and cheese.
