Never Confuse
Movement with Action

UX Designer transitioning from Fashion Product Management

I have 8 years of experience in Fashion product management. I managed 10-15 people of the fashion product management team and a group of the remote factory from Vietnam, China.

Fun Fact:

11 Years in Finance Investing as hobbyist 

4 different majors during college

12 Countries traveling

Age 20, Varsity Jacket Fashion start up business.

Business proposal was accepted by GOV Sponsorship

100% terms honor of every school attended

$500 donation as part of my profit into Red Cross Blood services

100% Coffee and Glazed Donut lover ❤️

I am fortunate enough that my idea for the business was sponsored by the government of South Korea.
I came to the United States as part of a Government Work-Abroad Scholarship Nominee (Korea Student Aid Foundation, KOSAF , South Korea) for professional careers.
I fell in love with life in the U.S so much that I decided to go to school in New York City in search of opportunities and to make the world a better place.
I am also lucky enough that the school of visual arts offered me freshmen exemption. So, I can graduate within three years and experiment with VR/AR technology and cutting-edge programs. I am certified UX Design courses, Computer programming basics from Bootcamp. The knowledge  I've gained in diverse fields can be applied interchangeably.

Currently, my main focus is user experience design. I'm not scared of getting my hands dirty, though. Thanks to my background as a fashion product manager and designer, I have the versatility to adjust and the ability to empathize with users to understand their issues and try to find solutions that work for them.
I am experienced, fast-paced, and detail-oriented and deadline-driven atmosphere. I can effectively communicate with engineers and product owners.

Raised in Seoul,Korea

Living in Manhattan, NY

I grew up with an Asian background and have since experienced western cultures. 

This unique opportunity has given me a global mindset, and an empathetic outlook on life.

I moved to Los Angeles in 2014 from Seoul and then on to Manhattan from Los Angeles. Manhattan has a vibrant enthusiasm for the American dream in the design field. It's something I've never seen anywhere else. Living in various countries, I've come to realize that I shouldn't take this for granted.
