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 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 18 years, stayed in Tokyo for a couple of years. Then I flew out to Chicago.
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 gonna 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.
So, 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, where I learned a lot about software, hardware, and poetry.
On the last day of dense two weeks, I built a seesaw toy which multiple people can control from anywhere via Internet. I wanted to see what it is like to share a single physical object from digital sphere.
According to statistics from the authoritative source named Mr. Twitter and Facebook, it seems like people (yeah, including me, apparently) tweeted & people liked respectively. I hope it’s a real number and you tweet & like too, if you have a bit of time and feel like doing it.
Thank you for coming. Hope you had a little nice time here.
Have a good day!:]
