Hello, I'm a Software Engineer working for Salesforce Marketing Cloud.

I started this blog as a place to share my hobbies and interests, as well as my thoughts on various random things in the world.


  • Music, including writing sometimes and I also play the tuba.
  • Travel, often times to Japan to visit my wife's side of the family.
  • Studying the Japanese language (but not as much as I probably should).
  • Open Source Software

Why matcha440?

Why not?

Green is my favorite color, and one of my favorite teas is a green tea known as matcha.

The number 440 comes from A440, a pitch standard by which many musical groups use for tuning.
