As a Full-Stack Software Engineer and Technical Lead in Kobe, Japan, I love creating delightful digital products using Ruby on Rails and AWS, with a fondness for good UI/UX.

Leveraging data from Marketing platforms, CRM, and

Webflow is used for the Website, integrating with ConvertKit for newsletter subscriptions and a Membership Platform.

An online learning and review tool to help music teachers and voice coaches to make a bigger impact on their students by enabling more nuanced and accurate feedback.

I can help you analyse business problems and advise technologies and software solutions to solve them.
