I am currently and actively looking for a new opportunity as UX/UI designer, possibly in combination with or growing into a leadership role.
I live in Yokohama, enjoy working in Tokyo, but I am open to remote.
My origins are in dress making, but I quickly became fascinated with fashion design & photography, started learning graphic design (including Quark XPress & InDesign) and finally moved on to web design.
Not satisfied with Photoshop mocks, I learned coding by copying source code into a text editor and deleting and editing elements and watching results in the browser. In the days before an inspector, this was a lot of copy / paste and save / reload.
Over the years, working as a freelancer, in start-ups & enterprise I have developed a strong sense of usability, accessibility, semantic HTML and DRY CSS, good UX design, as well as learned how to lead small and mid-sized teams to success.
I live to ship quality.
