I’m a UX engineer born in Nagoya, raised in Toyama, and living in Tokyo. When I was in junior high school, I experienced making money through affiliate marketing and was impressed by the possibilities of the Internet. Since then, I have always loved the Internet. When I was in university, I majored in marketing and was a member of a seminar on behavioral economics. I won a prize at the Kanto Student Marketing Contest and developed and managed a web service based on my winning research paper with my friends, took Goodpatch Design School, and participated in a short-term internship at CyberAgent. Eventually, I joined ikyu.com, a famous online reservation site for luxury hotels and restaurants, as a new graduate.

What I Do
2014.6 ~ 2017.3RE:CODE, a programming club
I joined RE:CODE, an intercollegiate programming circle, as a member of the management team. I formed a project team of several people within this circle. And I experienced the development and operation of five web services.
2017.4 ~IKYU Corporation
Ikyu Concierge articles use high quality and large size images. As a result, the site speed was very slow for a while. So, I improved the site speed of WordPress and used Fastly and imgIX to make it fast.
KIWAMINO was built with modern WordPress in mind, taking advantage of the failure of Ikyu Concierge. Perhaps because it was a new approach, we were interviewed by a Google employee. Here's the article about it.

2013.4 ~ 2017.3Tokyo University of Economics
Bachelor of Arts in Marketing and Distribution
In my first year, I studied the basic theory of marketing.
In my second year, I joined a seminar on behavioral economics. The seminar mainly consisted of case methods, debates, and paper writing. We held joint seminars with Chuo University and Kogakuin University to improve the quality of our papers. As a result, we won the Fighting Spirit Award at the Kanto Student Marketing Competition. The title of the winning paper was "Platform Strategies for Attracting UGC Creators". The paper used qualitative comparative analysis and discriminant analysis to pursue the rules of successful platforming. The presentation material of the paper is here.
2016.1 ~ 2016.2Goodpatch Inc.
Goodpatch Design School
I participated in a design school hosted by Goodpatch, the most famous design company in Japan. In this school, we learned Goodpatch's unique design process. Although I didn't win the competition, I was awarded the Prott prize.
2016.11 ~ 2016.12TECH::CAMP
I attended TECH::CAMP, a major programming school in Japan, for one month. Before joining the school, I prepped the basics of HTML, CSS & PHP on Progate. Thanks to this preparation, I was able to finish the TECH::CAMP curriculum in about 10 days. In the remaining 20 days, I challenged myself to develop an original application. In the end, we developed a Medium-like blog posting service. In order to push myself, I stayed at a hotel near TECH::CAMP, so I studied for about 300 hours in one month. Here's an interview with me from that time.
