With over 20 years of professional experience in Software Development and System Administration, I’ve cultivated expertise in Python, DevOps, Linux System Administration, and iOS App Development. I’ve had the privilege of collaborating with esteemed companies, including HP Japan, KDDI, AXA Direct Japan, VML London, INSHUR, and MPB.
My experience covers both remote and on-site work settings, encompassing areas such as Analysis, Design, Development, Management, and Implementation of a variety of standalone and client-server architecture-based enterprise application software. My commitment to continuous learning ensures I remain abreast of the latest market technologies. This dedication involves delving into new techniques, architectures, design patterns, and keeping pace with the most recent industry trends.
I embarked on my professional journey in 1995, gaining proficiency in numerous technologies. My initial roles involved working with Linux as a system administrator, and I took part in deploying and installing OpenMosix clusters for 3D rendering. This experience kindled a passion for teaching. Consequently, I spent two years imparting knowledge about Linux system administration and software development to engineers across private and public sectors. Later, I relocated to Japan and spent 10 enriching years in its traditional corporate environment, predominantly in system administration and consultancy roles. I also actively participated in the open-source community, notably as the VP of the Tokyo Linux Users Group and as a member of the Open Solaris Tokyo Users Group. In 2010, I ventured into mobile app development, and during that phase, I launched over 20 apps in the App Store as a contractor. I live in Brighton, UK, and work as a Lead Engineer for MPB. It’s a great platform that helps photographers and videographers trade equipment.
