I'm a software engineer based in Japan.
My work experience is quite diverse. Right now, I'm developing backend web services using Python and Kubernetes. In the past, I've worked on full-stack web apps using Node.js+Vue.js and AWS, Windows+Mac desktop apps using C++, and native Android+iOS mobile apps.
When it comes to work, I believe in continuous learning, keeping it DRY, "leaving the campground cleaner than the way you found it", and being lazy as one of the virtues of a good programmer.
As a way of motivating myself to get out more often and to get a bit of exercise, I do a bit of photography. I find that it's a great way to unplug and to reboot my brain after a long, hard week.
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 spend my time retreating into a book while drinking some hot tea and munching on a pack of soft chocolate chip cookies.
I enjoy eating spicy food, sushi, dark chocolate, pineapples, and almost anything that has cheese in it.
