Hey everyone, I’m Naomi.

I have a bad habit of looking at something and saying, “I could do that myself.” Then I do.

I split my time between my hometown (San Jose) and Alameda, own a small business, write, design, and direct film projects while also substitute teaching. My business, 6 Degrees of Hapa, is my way of contributing to the diverse and ever-changing Hapa community, it’s even been featured in this KQED piece! If I’m not festival hopping for my biz, I’m probably working on one of many projects and wondering when I’ll ever take a vacation again.

Naomi from 5 to 7 is a blog and portfolio wrapped into one package.

Find out more about my small business at 6degreesofhapa.com and explore Naomi from 5 to 7 to see what I’ve been up to.

And if you’re wondering why I chose Naomi from 5 to 7…
