KC Canlas

Senior Features Editor

An engineer by profession but a writer by passion, she uses her five years of college education to formulate quirky annotations. She’s attracted to all things tech, mostly gadgets between four and seven inches. She enjoys traveling near or far so long as she gets to tick off stuff from her bucket list. She loves driving even long road trips, but if you don't sing in the car, you can't be friends with her. She’s a foodie and is rarely picky. She loves to talk about “the weather” and says “the economy” a lot. No, not really unless she’s inebriated. But yes, if you were paying attention, she made the first sentence rhyme. Know the latest and follow her escapades on KC’s Notepad.
