Freelance writer. I had worked at US and European investment banks for over 10 years. After quitting, I went to Gold Coast for a long vacation and played golf every day. I also spent 4 years in London as a student in high school (& junior high). 

I love to travel both abroad and domestically. I also like playing shogi (Japanese chess), going to cafes to chill, and looking for yummy desserts. 

I graduated from Sophia university in Tokyo.
