Hello, 안녕! While I was in the Korean Army, I served in two roles: the first as an official communications operator, and the second as the base’s not-so-official go-to barber. But that entire time, my dream was to take the lessons I’d learned and see how far across the world they could take me. So far they’ve brought me all the way to New York City to become an advertising creative- that’s some pretty impressive mileage, don’t you think?

In my role as an art director, I am constantly absorbing new techniques and tools to give voice to the unique human insights I observe daily. When equipped with these abilities, I truly believe that creatives can change the world for the better.
