About me

Hi, I'm a teacher at a university in Japan.
I'm studying X-ray CT, math, and programming.
Please feel free to send a friend request. :)

[ Hobby ]
My hobbies are watching American dramas, solving math and programming problems and riding my road bike.

I've watched a lot of American dramas, for example, Dr. House, Numbers, Ugly Betty, Breaking Bad, Person of Interest, Suits, Lie to me, and so on (sometimes UK dramas like SHERLOCK are included).
If there is a drama that you can recommend, I want you to tell me.
But for now, I can't understand these dramas without Japanese subtitles.
In the future, I want to be able to understand these dramas with English subtitles, and furthermore, without subtitles.

Also, I sometimes participate in the programming contest but almost all of these contests are held in English like TopCoder.
Therefore, in order to increase the ratings of my solutions for the programming contests, I have to learn not only programming languages but also English.

[ Activities ]
I established software development venture company when I was a junior student.
As a president/CEO, I conduct company management, sales and marketing, software development and employee training between my study.

[ Dream ]
My dream is to study in a US university and to become a professor of a university.

Kanotown is incredibly helpful and very sweet. He diligently explains nuances between words and provides lots of natural-sounding alternatives you can use for your sentences. If you need help/encouragement with Japanese and would like to help someone out with English, you should definitely become his friend! :)
