I've been a python programmer for over 10 years now but have recently been doing more web stuff (Javascript, HTML/CSS). I've dabbled in Unity/C#. I used C/C++ and SQL a long time ago.

I enjoy video games, cooking/eating, hiking, travel, and photography.

Based out of Tokyo, Japan since May, 2018. Spent 2015-2017 in Aix-en-Provence, in beautiful, southern France.
