About KIM/OS
README.txt
Hi, I’m Jack! I create consumer products and art.

I spend most of my time designing, coding, writing, or building things. It's my life's passion. I run Ember Labs, a creative product studio in New York.

I'm particulary interested in how good design & technology can benefit people.

Hit me up! I don't bite.
Resume.txt
In the beginning, I was born as a beautiful Korean baby boy.

Then, I learned how to walk, talk and poop.

Then, I moved from Seoul to Seattle with my family.

Then, I learned how to make robots and websites.

Then, I discovered AdSense and ran some embarrassing but profitable sites like Twiloogle.com.

Then, I went through puberty.

Then, I started Benelab, a search engine nonprofit/startup that donated all of its revenue to monthly causes.

Then, I had my first girlfriend.

Then, she kind of dumped me.

Then, I went to Stanford to study Computer Science.

Then, I started a music streaming startup called OneTune.fm.

Then, it failed.

Then, I switched majors to Product Design and Studio Art.

Then, I dropped out and moved to New York.

Then, I got my ass kicked by my parents.

Then, I briefly worked at Bloglovin' as a designer.

Then, I worked at Giphy as a full-stack software developer.

Then, I took an "indefinite leave" from Giphy.

Then, I started a creative agency called von Hughes.

Then, we launched a bunch of viral products and media stunts like Rumblr.

Then, it went bankrupt.

Then, I started making art as Sebastian Park.

Then, I started running a product studio called Ember Labs full time.

Then, I built and launched a bunch of products like Duo AI and more.

Then, I had my heart broken for the first time.

Then, I sent some texts which I'll probably regret.

Now, you're reading about my life on my website.

Now, I continue to create and grow products day and night.

In the future, I'll keep doing just that until my mind or body falls apart.
