I'm a software engineer currently based in Japan.
My work experience is quite diverse. Right now, I'm developing full-stack 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/Java mobile 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 like to read, and when I'm not glued to a keyboard working on a side project or going on a photowalk, 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.
