In the past I have worked as an art teacher, graphic designer (print and video), illustrator, musician, and computer network technician. There’s usually some blend of creativity and technology in whatever I’m doing.
I currently live in:
Ichinomiya, Aichi Prefecture, Japan
Fukui City, Japan
Yokkaichi City, Japan
Toyohashi City, Japan

Below you can read about my interests in brief:
I also like making 3D textures and materials. I have released over 150 of them to the public.
I am always doin’ stuff with music. I have a bunch of little doodles and sketches that I post from time to time. Sometimes I am daring enough to add my own vocals.
I’ve used tracker software for making music since 1993, and DAWs like Propellerheads’ Reason since 2001. Right now I use Renoise most of the time. I used to be a freelance musician, and I made a lot of music for websites and interactive CD-ROM titles.
When I’m messing around with computers I usually try to get them to do music-related things. Like, play Led Zeppelin.
I draw and post a lot of my drawings on Flickr and Facebook, though you are more likely to have access to the former (I’ll have to fix that). I also have some drawings here on the site.
I do a lot of programming for work, mostly in PHP and some in Python. A lot of my hobby programming is in C, Python, or Processing (simple Java).
For work I really love using new web tech and surprising my clients with cool website features and other fun stuff that’s actually useful.
It just so happens that I can speak some Japanese. You’ll occasionally see some of it in my drawings.
I do writing here in my Notebook and in some other places online like Twitter.
I love to hike, to walk, to go out on a nice bike ride.
I have two little boys and a little girl.
I have a wife who is a great writer and is always cooking up something amazing.
We have two cats who are OK sharing a lap, and who also seem to enjoy the scents of various things.
