Los Angeles, CA, US



Hello, my name is Junho. I'm a product designer who hails from a lot of places, but that doesn't stop me from doing what I love to do: design. 
I first discovered my passion of product design at Parsons School for Design in NYC. There I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Product Design. With a mindset that not many people have, I observe objects and my surroundings well. I'm a tinkerer and I have an understanding of how objects work on a mechanical, objectional, and human level. Thinking logically and optimistically comes natural to me. It allows me to help others with their work. I hope that these skills lead me to go beyond just helping on projects, but helping solve problems for the everyday person. It's a part of why I love doing what I do.
