About Me

My name is Samuel Jun. I am currently living in the New York area and I'm a Senior Front End Engineer at Uber.


I love exploring new cities, discovering new music, skiing, and scuba diving. Feel free to check out my YouTube favorites. I also enjoy skiing, scuba diving, backpacking, burning a hole in my tongue with hot sauces, and throwing mugs in pottery.

Tomato Clock

A simple browser extension for managing your productivity.

Tomato Clock is a simple browser extension for managing your productivity. Use the extension to break down your work into 25 minute 'Tomato' intervals separated by short breaks. Use the long break after completing four Tomato intervals. You can customize the length of the Tomatoes and breaks in the extension page. The extension uses the default browser notification system, accompanied by a sound, to let you know when the timer is over. The extension also features stats for tracking how many Tomatoes you complete. Your stats are synced across devices using the browser's cloud storage support.

This project features a cross-browser code base to minimize code replication across the Firefox and Chrome extensions.
