About me & my work:
I am a future designer and CEO at future designers. I am also an entrepreneur, an eco-system builder, an innovation catalyst, a connector, and a new technology strategist. I was formerly a director of numerous R&D projects at Samsung Electronics, including wireless communication, home networks, mobile devices and emerging technologies. My main expertise is the innovation and invention based upon technologies.
In order to catalyze creative and meaningful collaborations over Asia, I co-founded Pan Asia Network which is comprised of innovators, creatives, makers, hackers, artists and entrepreneurs. I am also a board member of Commons lab (Creative Commons Korea), a partner of Social venture partners Seoul, an angel investor, and an ambassador of Network Society. I am a co-organizer of TEDxSeoul as well.
