Eima BLANK is my pen name since 2015. It started as an occasional author name to write articles on the ecology of the environment. In 2015, people started to call me Eima as a regular name and at some point, I decided to stick with it on all my internet websites. My mother calls me BANK, Eima BANK, but I thought that it was not really appropriate. Eima is like a screen character, some kind of jumpsuit I would wear in my professional life to separate my writing from the person I am.

I am graduated in architecture and I conducted my first research in 1990. It started with a sociological study of the "space of living in matriarchal and matrilineal families". This short study was followed with a study about "the way how architecture can absorb the stigmates of disable people". In 1991, I started height years research about "the traditional architecture of the Batak people of Sumatra" and in 1999, I started a research about the geometry of Pi in architecture. I still work on this subject as an independent researcher.

My education as a child and my work as an ethnographer have influenced my way of thinking. I am passionate about forestry and forestry is the main reason why I started to write with a pen name. I have won two first prices with the biggest accountants association of France for my writing about the economy of the wood industry. I have studied forestry on the field by making investigations with forest owners, forest managers, forest administrations, sawmills, carpenters, contractors, transporters and librarians. As an ethnographer, I have always been concerned by the impact of forestry on the people and how to accommodate sustainability in a modern world.

In 2015, I decided to abandon my research about the forestry after I have been the target of violent international competitors. I arrived in the US in February 2015. I applied for the US citizenship in May 2015 and I got my first work permit in December 2015. Since then, I have worked as a seamstress, a carpenter, a personal assistant, a translator, a designer and a handyman.
