Hi, I’m Jack! I create consumer products and art.
I spend most of my time designing, coding, writing, or building things. It's my life's passion. I run Ember Labs, a creative venture studio in New York.
I'm particulary interested in how good design & technology can benefit people.
Hit me up! I don't bite.
In the beginning, I was born as a beautiful Korean baby boy.
Then, I learned how to walk, talk and poop.
Then, I moved from Seoul to Seattle with my family.
Then, I learned how to make robots and websites.
Then, I discovered AdSense and ran some embarrassing but profitable sites like Twiloogle.com.
Then, I went through puberty.
Then, I started Benelab, a search engine nonprofit/startup that donated all of its revenue to monthly causes.
Then, I had my first girlfriend.
Then, she kind of dumped me.
Then, I went to Stanford to study Computer Science.
Then, I started a music streaming startup called OneTune.fm.
Then, it failed.
Then, I switched majors to Product Design and Studio Art.
Then, I dropped out and moved to New York.
Then, I got my ass kicked by my parents.
Then, I briefly worked at Bloglovin' as a designer.
Then, I worked at Giphy as a full-stack software developer.
Then, I took an "indefinite leave" from Giphy.
Then, I started a creative agency called von Hughes.
Then, I built and launched a bunch of viral products like Rumblr, HacBook Elite, and several others.
Then, I started making art as Sebastian Park.
Then, I started running a venture studio called Ember Labs.
Then, I built and launched a bunch of products like Duo AI, Flightdrop, and several more.
Then, I had my heart broken for the first time.
Then, I sent some texts which I'll probably regret.
Now, you're reading about my life on my website.
Now, I continue to design, build, grow, and invest in products day and night.
In the future, I'll keep doing just that until my mind or body falls apart.
