  • I have worked with Taeyoung for over 5 years, and he has always been a kind and helpful colleague! He is one of my go-to people when I need help with Macros and OpScripts and is talented in both lighting and look development!

  • I have worked with Taeyoung for more than 5 years. I only have good things to share about him. His technical knowledge and creative eyes are very competent. Whenever I hit a rock with problems, I always bug him, and he always says I will take a look and resolve it the next minute. A very trusted friend and colleague. You will never regret having a friend, colleague, or mentor like him.
