Hi, I'm Saebom

which means new spring

I am a UX Designer who is a born-emphasizer, a vigorous learner, and a maker. I am interested in creating value-oriented technologies that are inclusive of users with broader technical, social backgrounds.

I have worked on building security mental models of novice tech users, designing a system that prevents verbal abuse in social media, and evaluate space design software that community members can participate in neighborhood planning.

I am originally from Seoul, South Korea, where the sky in Autumn is crystal blue and lofty mountains are right behind you. Ever since I realized that the same ramen tastes so much better after you bath in sweat, trying new outdoor activities has been my fun time.
