A true 90s kid, I spent my childhood chatting on MSN with friends 24/7 and changing the source code on my Daum blog (Korean version of Xanga) to make glitter fall in the background. When teenage years hit, I grew interested in art, everyone migrated to Facebook, and I forgot about coding. My interest in coding sparked again when I built my first website and a Unity-based game from scratch in college. It furthered when I worked closely with web developers and saw what they did, which led me to leave my design job and pursue programming full time.
Since graduating from a web development coding bootcamp, I’ve worked as a full stack developer at a fintech startup and a restaurant startup, and as a freelance graphic designer and frontend developer for another restaurant startup.
In my next endeavor, I'm looking to continue as a full stack developer with lots of exposure to backend, data, and security or fully take on the backend in a SaaS company, and my interests currently lie in cybersecurity, blockchain, sustainability, pet care, and developer tools.
When I’m not in front of a computer, I’m most likely on an adventure with Zhora, my six year old Border Collie mix, or looking for the next concert to attend.
