I work at Airbnb doing iOS, and I love it.

I love cohesive design: showing that you care enough to design something amazing from the bottom up is a requirement to really get my attention.

I love little details: I probably sweat the details in everything I do—a true strength and weakness—more than anyone I've ever met.

I don't settle when it comes to The User Experience: users, at the end of the day, are the only ones who matter, so if I'm not unwavering in my determination to create the ultimate User Experience, then I'm not doing my job.

Other than that, I enjoy studying Japanese and whistling like a pro to my favorite songs.

comment Usage of すみません (sumimasen) versus ごめんなさい (gomen'nasai)
Thank you for this explanation. It's nice to be able to explain something at a purely conceptual level, but being able to interject example scenarios for common usage really helps me to grasp the context more.

comment What is the breakdown of countries where loan words originate?
@JesseGood What I mean is words that are written using katakana, not kanji. Is that what you meant?

comment Can ま be used as an interjection to connote an indignant tone?
I think the situation I was thinking of actually called for "well" as a translation, only the speaker happened to have an indignant tone. Thanks!

Can you elaborate a bit more (perhaps with an example) on your last paragraph? I'm not sure I fully understand. Thanks for the rest, though!

comment Can ま be used as an interjection to connote an indignant tone?
On second thought, this question is probably not the best. I can't think of or find any examples that would change the basic meaning of ま, except as it would be altered by intonation. However, this pretty much applies to any word or phrase, so it should be closed. Sorry!

comment Why does お[馬鹿]{ばか}さん contain honorific お?
Well, the さん wasn't too concerning to me as much as the お.
