お前、誰よ (Who the hell are you?)

I am a Developer Advocate working for Google on the Google Cloud Platform Team in Tokyo, Japan. My interests are in Kubernetes, Go, Python, and, of course, Google Cloud Platform. I am currently a contributer to gVisor and and various other container runtime and security related projects.

I moved to Tokyo in 2006 and have been working as a web developer. I previously did development using Django and Python but have experience developing in Java as well as mobile application development.

I have passed the JLPT N1. I like to think my Japanese is pretty good but still always learning.

I was an officially recognized Google Developer Expert from 2011 to 2014. I specialized in Google's cloud offerings, especially the Python language version of App Engine.

I was a founder, Vice Chair of the Board (2013-2019), and media team lead (2014) for the PyCon JP conference.

The opinions stated here are my own, not necessarily those of my company.
