Hi, I’m Jamie Crisman.

I do software development. For my hobbies I tend to do a lot of web development, but also like to experiment with game development, drawing, studying Japanese, and photography. I moved to Tokyo at the beginning of 2020 to experience life beyond North Texas. I occasionally write here about my hobbies, side projects, or just life in a foreign country.
