Digital Product Design


My background is in studying languages and culture. At university I studied Linguistics, Anthropology and Japanese.


I currently work at Shopify in Tokyo. Previously I was building product teams for Japanese client's at Pivotal Labs Tokyo.

I also enjoy programming. In my freetime I build a Japanese language-learning app called Tako Words. It is written in Swift.

I do a lot of photography both digital and film, which I have up on my Instagram.
