It's been 7 years since I moved to Tokyo. I thought I could find someone anytime I wanted, but before I knew it I turned 30. I work as a Software Engineer, but am interested in management and business strategy as well. On the weekends I often attend public events and seminars held in my neighborhood, but for the most part I read, write down ideas I have based on my experiences working in the industry, and play the piano. I'd like to find someone who I can live leisurely with, allowing us both to enjoy our work and personal lives.
