People of Lincoln Heights: Danny Duong

danny_duong_lincoln_heights.jpg

My name's Danny Duong and we're here in Lincoln Heights at the brewery arts complex.

I'm a web developer for a company called Two Bit Circuits. They are a group that works as a think tank and builds creative installations that help kids learn about S.T.E.A.M., which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math.

Working in this space is really inspiring. We have different types of artists from all over the creative realm. We have people working on graphic art projects, building, laser cutting, even people hosting cooking workshops. There are a lot of different artists coming together and just being in the same area helps them to be more inspired and build off of each other.

I have worked to craft my living environment. I moved closer to work and have enjoyed being able to ride my bike to work. One of the criteria I was using to pick my next occupation was being able to ride to work, and being here gives me that advantage. I don't live on the complex, but I get to ride downhill to get here and it's a breeze. The most enjoyable part about working here is being able to live so close and ride to work.

The above interview is transcribed and edited from the following interview:

As A Black Nurse at The Pandemic's Frontlines, I've Had A Close Look at America's Racial Divisions

Most of the time, I was able to frame conversations within the context of the virus and not race, telling patients that we were doing our best, trying to be the heroes they kept calling us. But I was dying inside .... It was easier to find solace in my job, easier to be just a nurse, than to be a Black nurse.
