Creation is my source of flow.
I've always loved to make things. It started with writing my first thirty-chapter novel when I was 13. I thought it was a good idea to make a website for my novel, so I learned a bit of HTML/CSS. Then, I decided I needed art for the book cover. I improved in art, and eventually that became my main hobby. When I was 16, I started drawing a webcomic and selling my art to commmissioners online. I have also made and sold an original artbook.
I love working with a team.
I love a team that is essentially a group of smart friends. I love it when we can learn from each other, have a great time, and also have the maturity to point out each other's mistakes and help one another. I am so grateful to my leader at my first job in Tokyo. He helped me into a position to use my skills and really have an impact. I look up to him, and I too want to be the kind of person who identifies others' good qualities and helps them thrive. I have been very fortunate in having good people around me, and am excited to meet more.
I'm a big picture thinker.
I've studied a lot of unrelated subjects, and am always learning something or another. I love trying to connect the dots between seemingly disparate things. (After all, isn't that what liberal arts education is for -- to be able to produce ideas at the intersections?) I think problems are great opportunities for innovation, and hope to tackle more of them!
