Hi, I'm Nayeon! It's pronounced like nylon, but without the "l". I was born in South Korea and immigrated to the US when I was only six years old. I grew up in the Imperial Valley, a small city at the southest corner of California -- right by the border. I moved to Los Angeles for college and have lived here since.
I currently work full-time as a Senior Lecturer at the Viterbi School of Engineering at USC. I teach web development to students of all majors. I love it because web development is a skill that is so useful no matter what career path you choose. USC is also my alma mater. I received my Bachelor's in Computer Science from USC. It was not an easy path, but I'm so glad I persevered through it.
Before teaching, I worked as a software engineer at space150, a creative agency where I worked on web applications for major brands like Disney, Fox, and Nike. Even though I now teach full-time, I still consult and develop projects on the side to keep my feet wet in the latest web technologies. You can check out the Projects page to see some more details of what I've worked on recently.
Recently, I've been getting into camping and exploring the outdoors with my husband. We even purchased a rooftop tent so that we can pick up and travel whenever!
