Hi, folks. I’m mnmly.

I love making things better, more useful and fun. It doesn’t matter if that might be big or small.

I also like solving problems because I can learn new things every single time I find an answer to it.

And it doesn’t have to be the smartest answer at first shot, because it’s not something like an exam where you can’t correct the answer, I can keep changing it and iterating over to make it better.

Speaking of myself, I was born and raised in Kyoto, lived there for eighteen years, stayed in Tokyo for a couple of years. Then I flew out to Chicago.

When in Chicago, I worked hard on The Noun Project, Mies Society, and other fun stuff as a member of Simple.Honest.Work.

After leaving the Windy City, I moved to Mountain View, California where I was coding to draw graphs to visualize complex set of data.

I also enjoyed living in the beautiful city — Portland, where I was making interactive prototypes and acting as a friendly middleman standing between creative and dev team.

I live in San Francisco for now. I am not supposed to talk a lot about what I do here, but I am really lucky to work with this superb group of people.

No one knows how things are going to turn out to be. I’ve never thought I would go outside of my hometown when I was a cute baby.

By the way, I know you might find it a bit weird but you can pronounce it as mínəmli.

As you might have guessed, I’ve been doing a bit of web development & design, I mean, “a bit” :)

Just recently, I made this tiny screensaver. I loved the process of learning, designing, developing and iterating on interaction.

In last Spring, I was lucky enough to learn at SFPC in New York City, where I learned a lot about software, hardware, and poetry.

On the last day of dense two weeks, I built a seesaw toy which allows multiple people to control from anywhere via Internet. I wanted to see what it is like to share a single physical object from digital sphere.

I am not pushing some codes recently. But I still take some photos on my phone.

According to statistics from the authoritative source named Twitter and Facebook, it seems like people tweeted & people liked respectively. I hope it’s a real number and if you have a bit of time and feel like doing it, I hope you tweet & like too.

Feel free to get in touch, you can reach me via any possible ways you can think of, you know, like email, twitter… hmm, nah, I guess that’s about it for the time being.

Thank you for coming. Hope you had a little nice time here.

Have a good day!
