About Me

I'm a software engineer based in Japan.

My work experience is quite diverse. Right now, I'm developing embedded and web applications using Python, Node.js, and Vue.js. In the past, I've also worked on desktop apps for Windows and Mac using C++ and wxWidgets, Android and iOS native apps, and other simple web apps using PHP and AngularJS.

When it comes to work, I believe in continuous learning and self-improvement, keeping it DRY, using the right tool for the job, "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 motivating myself to get out more often and to get a bit of exercise. 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 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.

Personal Projects

These side projects are mainly my way of teaching myself something new.
