Hi, I'm Jae Young

- but you can just call me Jae ✌ïļ

I am an engineer & freelance web developer based in the New York metropolitan area. I discovered my love for programming through my background in applied mathematics, passion in design philosophy, and interests in technology.

💎

I build websites and love every single bit of it. It allows me to equally tap into both my attributes as a designer and an engineer. I pride myself in knowing how to come up with robust solutions all while having a great eye for design.

A question I used to always ask myself — do I want to be a better designer or a better engineer?

Truth is... being a better designer makes me a better engineer & being a better engineer makes me a better designer. So I say yes to both.

I am always constantly trying to learn more about the web. Patterns, languages, the latest frameworks. Redefining the "user experience". The web is ever-changing and that's something I look forward to as I master this craft of mine.

But besides coding, I also enjoy cooking ðŸ‘ĻðŸŧ‍ðŸģ, running 🏃, shooting film photography, and collecting vinyls.
