About Me

I'm from Japan and spent most of my time there until recently. live in NYC now.

Used to work for a Japanese local daily as a reporter for almost seven years.

When the New York Times published "Snow Fall" in December, 2012,

I decided to change my career from print to digital.

To make the transition smooth, I went to Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University.

Learned web skills like HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

and some Economy stuff.

I believe journalists can be wizards with coding.

Stories can be more immersive, interactive and entertaining as people want.

Standing on a sweet spot where journalism and web technology intersect, I want to be one of those who create its future.
