Why did you leave South Korea?

I came here to go to college and also wanted to experience diverse cultures and see a bigger world through it.

What do you like about living and working in the United States?

The USA is a very diverse society with many different cultures, which makes an enormous synergy to make trends and lead them in most of the fields. So, I can adapt myself to a fast-changing world in the center of it. I can have all different kinds of authentic foods from all around the world in one city. How awesome is that? Having challah or empanada for breakfast, tacos for lunch, and sushi for dinner? And the portions are huge!

What do you like about being a Senior Designer at Red Spark?

The best thing about working at Red Spark is the great people who are so talented and motivated. So, I can learn something new every day. Another great part of working at Red Spark is the flexibility to balance work and life. Sometimes unexpected things can always come up with having a family, especially with a little kid and dog, but I’m able to manage my time and spend it with my family when I need to.

I wasn’t happy about the political situation and the direction the country was moving. Unfortunately, it has gotten even worse since I moved to the US.

Each place in the United States is very different and unique. You can lay on the beach in the morning and then, just a couple of hours later, enjoy snowboarding. Same with people – everyone has different opinions and unique ideas.

Everyone on the Red Spark team is very good at what they do – nothing is better than being surrounded by smart people.
