I currently work as a support engineer for Twitter Tokyo, where we reach out to not only APAC but globally. In my spare time I am a freelance photojournalist for Gaijinpot Travel, as well as a writer for GaijinPot study. In my spare time I play violin in the Matsudo City Philharmonic Orchestra, enjoy running, spending time outdoors, and cooking.
