About me:

I was born in South Korea, but that was just the beginning of my journey. After living in St. Thomas, St. Martin, Hong Kong and Israel, I made my way to Philadelphia to attend the University of the Arts. I graduated with a BFA in Illustration and a self-imposed minor in organization and multi-tasking.

I started my professional career as a graphic designer at David's Bridal. There, I designed print collateral and signage for stores that are still used today.

In 2002, I moved back to Hong Kong after leaving David's Bridal. Soon after moving back to Hong Kong, I had my first solo art show called “Enchanting Forest”. In 2003, I joined the company The Bridge Holding Limited, where I helped create and launch the Product Development Department.

In 2005, I came back to Philadelphia to work for Hot Headz International, where I currently serve as the Director of Product Development. At Hot Headz International I am responsible for researching, sourcing and developing products of different categories.

My background in product development gave me an opportunity to work in a rapidly growing and innovative field. I quickly became the go-to person for internal production, client services and vendor management. My position in Product Development parlays into Project Management.

Since August of 2013 I started to freelance in graphic design, social media and painting in oils and watercolors. You can see a painting that I did for The Philly Pack Pet Shop in the shop, it is of Donovan and Zoey Running on the Beach.
