Yearim Leslie Yi is a South Korean-American classical pianist, commercial model & actress, and former full-stack developer. ​She has shown her interest in classical music in the early age that has led her to studying the piano at the age of five and the violin at the age of nine.

Yearim has received her master's degree from the Manhattan School of Music (Master of Music, MM), after graduating from the Florida State University (Bachelor of Music, BM). In April of 2019, she made her Carnegie debut, and has been actively teaching and performing as a solo and chamber musician at prestigious music festivals across the States.

During Covid, she made her transition into tech, after graduating from Flatiron School Coding Bootcamp. After a few years in the technology field, Yearim returned to her true passion: performing arts. She worked at Midori & Friends as a music administrator/teaching artist and is now focusing solely on her career as a musician, educator, and model & actress in New York City.

When she is not behind the keyboards (piano or computer), you may also find her around the city behind the cameras as a portrait photographer.
