Never Confuse Movement with Action

I have five years of experience in the Fashion and Design field spanning different backgrounds and cultures. I managed 10-15 people of the fashion product team and a group of the remote factory from Vietnam, China.
I believe Good Design is Good Business.
Fun Fact:
I studied in Tourism Management, Fashion Design, Illustration(BFA), Psychology, Customer Product Trend, Marketing and Web-Design.
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 Program (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. The knowledge  I've gained in diverse fields can be applied interchangeably.

(Basic understanding of front-end  Development technologies)

Currently, my main focus is user experience design. I'm not scared of getting my hands dirty, though. Thanks to my background as a product development 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 or code a website like the one you're browsing through right now.

Raised in Seoul,Korea

Living in Manhattan, NY

During the last several years, I've had the chance to immerse myself in many different cultures. It's amazing to see how each affects behavior and user testing results.
I love every form of design that is data-inspired, fosters human interaction, and user-centered. 
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.
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.
