East Palo Alto Sun is a blog about things happening in East Palo Alto. This blog was started by Chris Kao and Mark Dinan, both residents of East Palo Alto. This blog is self-funded and we are not paid to write about any specific topics.

Chris and Mark soak up the East Palo Alto sun during a walk on the beautiful Ravenswood Nature Preserve trail in East Palo Alto.

Hi everyone, I'm a software engineer at Meta working on Marketplace ranking infrastructure. I'm also a Public Works & Transportation Commissioner for East Palo Alto. When Bay Road was under construction, I created a series of voiceover-narrated drone videos to inform the community about the updates. Based on positive community reception, I started this blog as an outlet to write about a lot of the infrastructure topics in our city. I also hope to promote the beautiful things in our city like the parks, nature, food, and more.
