Spending time helping people start their design careers is very important to me. I have a lot of pride for the people I've mentored and how their career turns out.
I usually play every night with friends or co-workers. I prefer playing the mid lane with Invoker, Meepo, or Broodmother. My highest rank was Ancient II.
During the pandemic, I tried training thrice a week, and did queueing twice a week. On hiatus.
I like taking portraits of friends, and interesting landscapes. I also love taking photos during the golden hour.
Meeting new people with different skills, hobbies, and interests other than mine, that help expand my perspective.
I read every day! I rely on books and articles on product, design, leadership, and coaching for my growth. Unfortunately, I don't like fiction books that much.
I like Shounen in general, OP characters in Isekai worlds, good music, and a bit of Seinen! Favorites: Death Note, Code Geass, Black Clover, HxH, Erased, Haikyuu, Dragon Ball Super, Food Wars, Yowamushi Pedal ++
