I am a Martial Artist.

I am a third degree in the Korean martial art of Taekwondo with over seventeen years of training and experience. I am a former international competitor in both sparring and poomse. I was also an instructor for over six years at various schools in the organization I trained in.

I am a Software Engineer.

I started working as a programmer in high school doing freelance web design. In college, I continued this for friends and local businesses before starting as an intern for a local software company. After graduation, I continued as a full-time developer. At the end of 2015, after over six years with the same company, I moved to Seattle to pursue new opportunities and new experiences.

I love solving problems, learning new technologies and ways to solve problems, and just working with technology. I especially love solving problems through automation. My goal of any software I design is to make peoples lives easier so that they can have more time for the more important parts of life, instead of struggling with software. I enjoy automating complex or error prone processes through the use of both processing services and user tools.

I am a System Administrator.

Since high school, I have maintained my own servers and assisted others in running their own. When working as a freelance website developer, I often hosted my clients’ work on my own servers for an additional recurring fee. I also assisted the network admin for my Computer Science department while in university.

Some of the projects I have been involved in as a system admin are: IRC network of multiple servers world-wide, online radio station, web hosting, personal server with website and development platform.
