About the Author
I’m a Globalizer at Automattic, the company behind WordPress.com, Jetpack, Tumblr, and more. I was born and raised in Fukuoka, Japan then I studied and worked in the U.S. (Missouri & Michigan) for a total of 14 years before moving to Tokyo in 2011. In 2023, I moved to Yakushima, Japan with my husband and 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.
