About me


I'm an engineer from Ishikawa prefecture in Japan. After studying mechanical engineering at a technical college and material engineering at a university of technology, I worked as material development of thermistor and production in a manufacturer. After that, I moved to the IT industry at 31 years old. Having started my career from operations and technical support, I have worked extensively from infrastructure to front-end, including AWS cloud server construction, web page creation, Python/django tool development and so on.
