[SITE UNDER CONSTRUCTION]

A highly self-motivated individual who is always ready to learn and experience new things. I'm working towards a career in Strategic Management while also exploring options related to Graphic Design - something that started very much as a hobby but which has developed since then.

Currently I'm living in Japan teaching English in senior high school, while (hopefully!) improving my own proficiency in Japanese.

Interests

Much of what you see here comes as a result of me attempting to fully explore the areas that I’m interested in, with an effort to eventually work them all into one coherent thread. This page itself, for example, only exists because I decided one summer to tinker around with HTML and CSS to make myself a basic Japanese flashcard app (which still exists!). In fact the Japanese itself only started as a simple curiosity in the language, but developed into something that would uproot me from life in England and bring me to the other side of the world.

The interest in Graphic Design, however, came about slightly differently. Having always had an interest in art I had been looking for a medium that wouldn’t require a significant investment to get started or to continue. Eventually I landed on vector design, and while my skills are still very much developing, I’ve been able to use what I’ve learned for numerous clients and personal projects. It’s a joy to be able to express myself creatively and something I want to seriously pursue in the future.

Beyond that, I love windsurfing – it’s an exhilarating sport that I’d encourage anyone to try – and playing on my beautiful Taylor BT2 guitar. I’m also a huge fan of Super Smash Bros. Melee (the GameCube one!), so if you’re down to watch some tournaments or play some games, I’m your guy
