about leo

A software generalist from Japan in love with computers.

I prefer to work as an independent contributor in service of building simple, robust, responsible technology.

I'm experienced in building user experiences, system integrations, daemons, and frameworks for mobile, desktop, web, and embedded.

I care deeply about our relationship with technology. I've explored this interest through security, privacy, and education. I believe that reducing complexity is a key ingredient in designing powerful systems where people have agency.

While practical at work, I feel that there is value in "reinventing the wheel" at times. I believe that building the best personal software involves building your own "software engine", in the same way the old-school game developers hand-crafted their own game engines.

Recently, I've been working on my personal software runtime for my digital homesteading practice.
