Los Angeles, CA, US



I am a recent graduate from Academy of Art University with BFA in Interior Architecture and Design. I am currently located in San Francisco but my job search extends to East Coast and So Cal. I am native to English and Korean and beginner in Mandarin. 

I have interned many times at different companies. The two intern experiences in interior design firm gave me chance to become familiar with the whole design field. I am from Korea and moved to U.S. in 2001. I lived all around the world including Asia, South East Asia, Europe, East Coast and West Coast of U.S. Having lived in and traveled to different countries exposed me to various cultures. Not only I have learned to adapt to live in a mixture of different cultures, but also broadened my eye to look at the world in many perspectives. I believe that I can bring those experiences to my design career and it certainly has been helpful when solving a design problems or coming up with innovative ideas.

I speak fluent English, native Korean, and intermediate Chinese.
