I was born in Korea and spent my childhood in Singapore, Greece, and Oslo. The experience I gained while traveling over 40 countries as a child became the backbone of my thinking and creativity.
I studied industrial/transportation design and Automotive User Interface at Kookmin University in Seoul, Korea.
I received an internship at Samsung and Hyundai before working as an industrial designer at Samsung.
I am a seasoned design professional with over 18+ years of experience in consumer electronics, medical devices, transportation design, aviation, user experience, product development, concept testing, product range build-up, and creative direction setting.
I have put over 50 designs on the market throughout my career.
