For My Traveling Days
I truly Love Travel, so I have visited over 40 countries so far by myself by backpack.
So for my traveling days, please see my World Traveling Archives.
I have visited Russia, Ukrine, Bosnia, Macedonia, Uzbekistan, Alaska, Germany, Israel, Lebanon, Syria, Indonesia…..too many!
I love to visit developing countries.
Especially I have stayed on Indonesia and Russia(also pre-Soviet countries) months for each by homestay, so that is why, I can speak Indonesian and Russian only a little.
I have perfect pitch, that truly helps me to learn lanuguages such faster.
And I have visited Otaku Convention outside Japan.
Thai Convention, Germany Convention (Connichi, LBM), Spanish Convention (Salon de Manga), US Convention (Otakon and Convention in Orland), Japan Expo in France, Fancy Frontier and Hetalia Only Event in Taiwan, Hongkong Convention, and also Chinese Hetalia Only Convention held in GuanZhou.
For My Composing Music Days
I wanna say I have started to compose some musics I was 16 years old.
My 1st memorable composing music is “Butter-Fly” in Digimon Adventure.
I have perfect pitch and I can copy almost all of musics and sounds in the world.
So I have composed over 100 musics so far, and started to compose even original musics.
Especiall I love classical music, so my favorite game musics are more like Final Fantasy on Square Enix!
You can see how it is like on the article about “How I can see the world by Perfect Pitch”
For My Economist/Institutional Investor Days
I have worked in Financial Industry for almost 10 years. And I was active as Fund Manager (as Institutional Investor) in Buy-side.
I have experienced Economist for 3 years and also working as Equities Analyst/Strategist.
Was in charge of mainly Medical, Financial company, Retail and Services but I can say I did more than that, broader sectors.
I prepared over 400 financial credit analyst reports so far.
And after that, I experienced investing in Hegde Funds and Private Equities.
I was working in Japan, but once experienced working in US headquarer investment team for a while to find much better investment opportunities in US equity market.
So I can say, I am purely person in Financial/Investment areas!
It is in Japanese though, but you can see my column contributing to Forbes Japan as below.
