Westminster, CA, US




My name is Cheeyoon Chun. I am an aspiring designer working my way to become an architect. It has been my life dream to be an architect. Architecture is taken over my life and it is all that I see, think and live for. I say this in the most positive way. However I do have other hobbies and joys in my life. I love traveling other parts of the country and world. My recent trips have been Israel, Portugal, Spain, France and my next adventure will be Jamaica. I come from a art background, specifically sculpture. On my free time I am either at the museum or playing a round of golf.
