I studied and earned my Bachelors of Science degree in Chemical Engineering (2009) at the University of Washington in Seattle, Washington USA. In the past, I’ve held an internship position in web developing at a State department, a help desk consulting and IT administration part-time position at my alma mater, and an Engineer in the petroleum industry. I am also a writer (on hiatus) for Tofugu, a Japanese language and culture blog.
Some of my passions are beers/microbrews, ethnic food, baseball, art & photography, and traveling.
