WorkWhat I’ve done // What I’m doingI’ve been writing web programs since 1999. Over the last few years I’ve worked professionally as a web engineer in the programmatic advertising industry and currently as a developer at Salesforce.My earlier years saw me teaching English in Japan, doing creative work in the fashion industry, and producer work for small software companies.I have a really cool BA in History. Somehow along the way I’ve learned Japanese and Korean decently enough to get by.I also co-founded a wedding photography company back in 2010 and still shoot.
PlayWhat I like to do // What I amI’m really into chess, Magic the Gathering, classic James Bond films, Rolex watches, and 5th generation video games. VIII is my favorite Final Fantasy.Music once defined me but adulthood occupies most of the time I could spend writing new material. Still, sometimes I find the time to record under the moniker Mouse Deer.Korean dishes, gyro sandwiches, and pepperoni pizza are probably my favorite foods. I really like Japanese beers and west coast IPAs too.I also love the First Amendment. Nobody loves it better than me.
