I graduated with a master’s degree in computer science from the University of Hawaii at Manoa. In 2011, I began my career as a software developer at Referentia Systems in Honolulu, Hawaii. At Referentia, I assisted in the development of the LiveAction product. After working at Referentia for 2.5 years, I was hired as a Java web developer by the University of Hawaii. Between the fall 2014 and spring 2015 semesters, I upgraded Laulima, the learning management system that the university uses for traditional face-to-face, online, and hybrid classes.

I hold three Java certifications, including the Oracle Certified Master, Java SE 6 Developer certification.

I am a successful Android developer. As of January 2015, I have published seven Android apps on Google Play. You can check out my apps here or down below.

I use Gradle for my personal projects because it makes building applications very easy. I was a reviewer for Gradle in Action.

During my free time, I teach myself Japanese, read books about Japanese culture, and watch anime. I also shoot videos and upload them to YouTube.

I enjoy traveling. In June 2015, I visited Tokyo and Oarai. You can check out photos from my trip here.
