I never thought I would be here.

Becoming a designer is one of the last things I expected.

How'd it Happen?

I graduated from New York University in May 2017 and was on a pre-law track. However, my final year I declared a web programming and applications minor out of pure interest. It was through development that I found my love for design. It was the first time when I got hyped about learning and got addicted to creating things. So after graduation, I took a leap of faith and made the career switch to design.

I haven’t looked back since.

I'm currently a product designer at Meetup. Previously, I was a product design intern at Oak Studios. If you’d like to reach out about anything, send me an e-mail. I'm also available for light freelance work.

Some tidbits about me:

  1. My name is pronounced "yay".
  2. I was born and raised in Michigan. Ope.
  3. My background is Korean but I’ve never been to Korea.
  4. I'm on Netflix in "Bill Nye Saves the World, ep. 8". Karlie Kloss interviewed me about diets.
  5. I once ate 200 dumplings in a single sitting.
  6. This is a subject to change, but I want to own a white husky one day and name it 두부 (dooboo), which translates to “tofu” in Korean.
