I was born in Seoul, South Korea before flying to meet my mom + dad here in the States. Both of my parents were teachers + business owners, instilling qualities in me that have helped me as an artist + as a professional.
My childhood was full + golden hued. I grew up on Broadway music, Nick at Night + ballet classes. My dad built my sister + me our own playhouse in the backyard that I promptly filled with framed New Kids On The Block posters and drawings from art class.
But, most importantly, I have boxes of photos from my years growing up. My mom always had a camera in hand, capturing images of every recital, birthday, Christmas + random summer day. Life is worth memorializing and it’s why I pick up my camera everyday.
Throughout the past 13 years, I have worked with international modeling agencies in New York, photographed hundreds of subjects and have been published in online magazines + PhotoVogue Italia. My work has been shared on the social media accounts of One + Only Mandarina, Victoria Beckham Beauty, Birkenstock and Levis to name a few.
My business has allowed me to travel all over the world- from Iceland to Mexico to Morocco to Portugal. Nearly a decade into growing my photography, I expanded and began offering graphic design + social media consulting. In 2020, my husband + I officially opened our renovation + design business : Merrill + Edwards where I design, photograph + run our social media.
I am honored to be a part of the Syracuse Sweat Club team, capturing and showcasing our incredible community!
