I am a software engineer interested in the intersection of people and technology. I'm currently at GitHub where I am focused on accessibility.

I have a background in Cognitive Science and am fascinated by the human mind. I am a first-generation Japanese American and am fluent in English and Japanese. On the weekends, I love visiting bakeries in the area, baking, and unwinding with my dog, Tagé.

Ruby for Good is awesome and I highly recommend for anyone looking to get involved in open source projects! Here’s a list of their volunteer-driven projects!

Reflecting on my experience in the past few months:

Things I appreciate:

  • Friendly slack community of Rubyists
  • Beginner friendly labels on project issues
  • Well-documented README to allow anyone to contribute
  • Weekly office hours for questions! (might depend on the project).
