About Me

I'm a software engineer currently based in Japan.

My work experience is quite diverse. Right now, I'm developing embedded, mobile, and web applications using Python, Vue.js, iOS (Swift), and AWS. In the past, I've worked on other kinds of projects such as Windows/Mac desktop apps using wxWidgets (C++), Android apps, embedded Linux apps, and simple web apps using PHP/AngularJS and Ruby on Rails.

When it comes to work, I believe in continuous learning and improvement, keeping it DRY, doing-it-well over doing-it-fast, "leaving the campground cleaner than the way you found it", and using spaces over tabs.

I do a bit of photography, as a way of capturing the interesting or memorable sights and experiences from places I've been to. It's also a great way to motivate myself to get out more often and to get a bit of exercise.

I also like to read, and when I'm not out on a photowalk or glued to a keyboard working on some side project, I usually unwind by retreating into a book with a hot cup of tea and a pack of chocolate chip cookies.

I enjoy eating spicy food, sushi, dark chocolate, pineapples, and almost anything that has cheese in it.

Photography

I'm mostly into scenic/landscape photography, but I'm also trying my hand at street photography. Here are some of my favorite shots (each photo links to their respective albums on Flickr). I also randomly post on Instagram.
