I'm a software developer interested in business strategy and better UX designs. I hold an MBA degree, and I am a former professional Go player.
I currently live in Mountain View, California. I love to read books, newspaper, and magazines, and to play tennis with my awesome husband.
I enjoy learning, and I've always been thrilled to accept new challenges. I am a software developer, but my work experience includes product management and project management.
My MBA was specialized in nonprofit management, especially in the areas of international organizations and public private partnerships. My Master's thesis analyzed global governance issues and models in cybersecurity.
I've played Go since I was 5 years old. I became a professional player at 16, and I was one of the top female pros in South Korea. Today I am running my own Go channel on YouTube, and working as a commentator of the American Go Association.
Strive to be wiser each day. Learn from experience, conversations, books, and contemplation.
Listen more than speak, and carefully communicate what I know, think, or feel. Avoid assuming other people can read my mind.
Love is a verb, not a feeling. Love my family, friends, and myself.
Always have a strategy based on long-term perspectives, even though it requires frequent revision.
My YouTube channel began as an experiment. I made a few videos where I talked in English about my plans and strategy while I played Go online. These few videos went viral in the Go community, and I continued to make various Go videos since then. Today, my channel has over 200 videos, 12k subscribers, and 20M minutes watched.
My first published book, Outside the Board, is a collection of 70+ blog entries I wrote during my transition from an active professional Go player to an undergrad student to a young professional in business administration. Recently, I began to work on another book on my childhood years as a Go prodigy.
