Originally from South Korea, Jay moved to New Zealand and came to Vancouver three years ago. He initially wanted to explore and experience North American culture but decided to reside in Vancouver, as he fell in love with the beauty and attitude of the city. Jay is curious, adventurous, and active. He is someone who loves outdoor activities and meeting people from all walks of life. Jay believes that good design is intuitive and that the design should reflect the functions that it is trying to solve. After graduation, he plans to pursue sculpture, with wood as his primary medium, since he has always been interested in woodwork at a young age.
