Aloha! I'm Sharon, a product designer born in Seoul, Korea, raised in Hawaii, and currently designing in New York City🗽
First of all, thanks for visiting my space! You might be wondering why I have two names up there; Dayoung is my given name and Sharon is the name my friends know me by!
Right now, I'm studying Interaction Design @svaixd. Previously, I studied Communication Design @cmudesign. This summer, I'll be interning with @vmware as a Product Design Intern with the Cloud Services Platform team.
If you are into 35mm, zines, yoga, fashion, and are a foodie, I would love to chat. Even if you aren't, drop me a line-would love to chat with any human beings at the moment 😷

p.s. If you are selling a Contax G1/G2 definitely reach out.
