Welcome to my personal blog. Here I share the skills and insights I’ve gained working and living as a foreigner in Japan.

In May 2011, I founded SimplyCubed, a consulting firm in the US, while living in Japan. Then in 2020, I took the plunge and launched a company with the same name in Japan and doubled down on Kubernetes and Cloud security.

I’m also a proud husband and father and enjoy the complications of having a cross-border family. I share my experiences with personal finance as an American living in Japan on Gaijin Money.

Most recently, in early 2021, I started sailing. Now a member of the American Sailing Association (ASA). I’ve passed the initial courses covering safety, docking, and daysailing and am scheduled to complete the remaining courses over the next two years.
