Originally from Korea, Angie grew up in the LA county and went to UC San Diego to major in Communications. Right after graduation, she moved up to San Francisco and lived there for 7 years. In San Francisco, Angie met her husband and started a side project called Poketo and eventually moved down to Los Angeles. Before Poketo, Angie went to school for a second degree in Graphic Design. That is when she got the itch to make something functional that everyone would need with them everywhere they went. After a party to release the first line of a Poketo product, a wallet with a friends' artwork on it, they completely sold out the first night. The rest is history. Now, Angie and her husband have two brick and mortar shops in the hottest areas of Los Angeles. The flagship and HQ is located in the Arts District and another small outpost inside the lobby of the Line Hotel. Angie is currently the Creative Director at Poketo and oversees all curation, the look and feel of the site and store, and is in charge of artist collaborations.
