About


Hi! I'm Kim, and I am a Product Designer. I craft designs on the intersection of users needs, behavioral psychology, technology, and business goals to create delightful experiences.

In my free time I enjoy observing the world around me by running, riding my bicycle, and occasionally making memes.

I am passionate, driven and self motivated.

Highly enthused by team collaboration and all things design.

I love solving difficult problems to help people.

I strongly empathize with users, and strive to be their crusader.

I am constantly adapting to change. I know how to follow a process and when to divert from one.
