About me

Of all the hats I've worn over my years, the hat with the snuggest fit is video game design. It's my true passion and this is the hat I will wear for the foreseeable future.

Hats worn previously include:
- Creative Director's "Top-hat" at IBM Tokyo,
- UI / UX "Flatcap" at various App creating gigs.
- Illustrator's "Fruitbowl Dancing hat" for Google, Nike & RedBull.
- Programmer's "Reverse baseball cap" for Cygames & various video games.
- Print layout "Green Eyeshade cap" for various publications and advertising.
And last but not least, Web Designer's "straw hat" for more websites than I can count.

I regularly attend events and functions in Tokyo & Kyoto. Feel free to talk to me about hats (and possibly design).
