I am a partner in the developer relations firm Oppkey, focusing on software clients in open source, software development, mobile, high performance computing, cloud, and other cutting edge technologies. I work with incredible clients like ActiveState, known for software developer-focused dev tools and open source language distributions, RICOH THETA, the world's best selling 360° camera with an open source API supported by Google, CloudRouter, an innovative open source SDN Linux distribution, Restlet an API platform consuming, designing, developing and deploying APIs in the cloud, and more. If you're a Japanese company looking to connect with US Developers in Silicon Valley, please drop Oppkey a note. We are fluent in Japanese and have experience both working in Japan and helping Japanese startups establish communities in America. In the past ten years we have helped multiple Japanese clients with their US market communications strategies including Lunascape, a triple-engine browswer, Plat'Home, a small, eco-friendly Linux server, and more.
I was born in Connecticut, raised in New Mexico. I call New Mexico home, even though I haven't lived there for quite a while. I've been in California and Japan for a lot of years, but I still miss the New Mexican green chili, the wide open skies, and the clear air. I am married to Mari Saegusa, a ceramics and printmaking artist, and live and work in the Marina in San Francisco.
I have a BA in Asian Studies and Japanese from Connecticut College and an MA in East Asian Studies from Stanford.
