Eul Basa Hi, I'm Eul. I have a Biology degree from the University of Waterloo. Somehow I ended up as the Content Strategist for Narcity Media. I write stuff but I'm no journalist. I dabble in a lot of things. My best friend is a fluffy pup that thinks it's human. 80's remixes of contemporary songs are my guilty pleasure. My aesthetic is a wet slice of bread in a pink bathtub. You probably won't get my sense of humour. Creative people inspire me.
