avatar for Jonny Sun

Jonny Sun

Jonny (or Jomny) Sun is a not-so-regular polymath, an engineer, architect, playwright, and author who became famous as a spelling-challenged alien on Twitter. Or, more accurately, an aliebn. After earning his bachelor’s degree in engineering from the University of Toronto, he pursued his master’s in architecture from Yale. To help combat the feeling of isolation and to keep up with joke writing, he started his Twitter, @jonnysun, written primarily from the perspective of his alien avatar observing Earth life. His first book is Everyone’s an Aliebn When Ur a Aliebn Too, a full-length, illustrated tale of a lonely alien observing life on Earth. Sun is currently a PhD student at MIT and was a 2016–2017 fellow at the Berkman Klein Center at Harvard University. His plays have been performed at the Yale School of Drama and the Factory Theater in Toronto, as well as a number of other Toronto venues. He has exhibited his art and illustration at MIT, Yale, and the University of Toronto.
