Hello, I'm Sean.
+I'm a multi-disciplinary UX Designer, currently at +Firstborn and previously at +Huge in New York City.
I was born in Seoul, grew up in Seattle (It's actually a place called +Puyallup, where nobody knows.), studied and graduated at the +School of Visual Arts in 2018 New York, with BFA Interaction Design.
I love to solve problems, prototype solutions and show cool ideas through storytelling. I collaborate with multi-disciplinary teams to solve bigger, complicated problems. I believe the power of design can connect, empower, and enrich the quality of human lives and experiences.
I also enjoy learning new skills and tools to maximize my creativity. I've recently started learning Creative Computing with Processing & P5.js languages.
If I'm not designing, you can find me making +songs and beats or watching National Geographic films. If you like to drink coffee (yes, I'm from Seattle), you can probably be one of my best friends.
Feel free to say hello.
