Hi, I'm Jae Young

- but you can just call me Jae ✌️

I am an engineer based in the New York metropolitan area focusing in front end development. I mainly code in Javascript, Swift, and Python but I'm constantly exploring new languages & frameworks. I discovered my love for programming through my background in applied mathematics, my passion in design philosophy, and my hobbies in technology.

πŸ’¬

Previously an iOS developer who is now dabbling into the world of React.js and all that entails the magic of web development.

I love building web applications because they are the perfect medium in utilizing both design principles & problem solving skills. I pride myself in knowing how to come up with solutions and having a great eye for design. I strongly believe in creating responsive & visually stunning code as well as understanding how to translate a fluid user experience to the screen.

In my free time I enjoy cooking πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ³, running πŸƒ, shooting film πŸ“· photography, recycling my wardrobe, and curating my vinyl collection.
