Ji Lee

I was born in Seoul, Korea and raised in São Paulo, Brazil. I live and work in New York.

I work on both personal and professional projects. They fulfill me in different ways, and they complement each other. I believe ideas are nothing, doing is everything. I love bicycling, animals, jazz, hot sauce and fun puns.
