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.
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, Flightdrop, 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'm continuing to create and grow products day and night.
In the future, I'll keep doing just that until my mind or body falls apart.
