저는 브랜딩과 디지털 경험의 배경을 가진 디자이너입니다. 홍익대학교 시각디자인과에서 사진과 그래픽, 인터렉티브 디자인을, 동 대학원에서 브랜드 매니지먼트를 전공하였습니다. 디지털 미디어의 서비스 기획 및 그래픽 작업의 실무 경험을 바탕으로 여러 분야의 프로젝트를 진행해 왔으며, 현재는 스켈터랩스에서 그 커뮤니케이션 영역을 넓혀가고 있습니다.

디자인 전반에 철학이 담긴 사고, 인사이트 있는 전략, 디테일한 장인 정신, 넘치는 위트를 담기 위해 노력합니다. 낭만주의 시대정신을 담은 로맨틱 스튜디오로 다른 아티스트들과 협업해 왔으며, 2007년 12월부터 시작한 Flyer Project라는 개인 프로젝트를 진행하고 있습니다. 개구쟁이 고양이 두 마리와 함께 서울에 살고 있습니다.
