About the Author
I’m a Globalizer at Automattic, the company behind WordPress.com. I was born and raised in Fukuoka, Japan. I studied and worked in the U.S. (Missouri & Michigan) for a total of 14 years before moving back to Japan in 2011. I’m currently living in Tokyo with my husband & two kids.
I really enjoy listening to audiobooks and podcasts whenever my mind and ears are not occupied by something else. I’m currently learning Spanish.
