June Bae is a director born in Seoul, South Korea and raised in Houston, Texas. He moved to Detroit, Michigan after graduating from the University of Michigan with a degree in Screen Arts and Culture, a fancy term for film studies.
His career began at a local news station creating local jingle commercials, something he’s not proud of to this day. Since then, he’s directed projects for brands like Gillette, Japan Airlines, PayPal, Purple, USA Hockey, and Winn-Dixie.
He now resides in Los Angeles, California but strangely misses the harsh Michigan winters.
