Hello, I'm Sean.

+I'm a Product Designer at +R/GA in San Francisco, previously at +Firstborn and +Huge in New York.

I was born in Seoul, grew up in Seattle (It's actually a place called +Puyallup, where nobody knows.), studied BFA Interaction Design and graduated at the +School of Visual Arts in New York, 2018.

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 drinking coffee (yes, I'm from Seattle), you can probably be my friends. 

Feel free to say hello.
