My name is “Eido Inoue” (in Japanese: 井上エイド), and I’m a Japanese national, born in Washington D.C., who first immigrated to Japan over 25 years ago. I’ve been married to an Osakan for over twenty years, and I have a Japanese-American teenage daughter, of which the only thing we have in common is 3D computer illustration and animation. Her graphics workstation is far more impressive than my laptop in my home office. 💸
After majoring in computer science at a U.S. university, I started as a software engineer for a small Internet Service Provider in Osaka City in the mid-nineties. From there, I worked my way up through various companies to software management, then director, and since last year I’ve been the head of all things technical at meleap inc. in Tokyo.
I the beginning I worked in enterprise software, working on Linux and open source software with Red Hat for a total of over ten years. Between that, I worked on consumer cloud software with Google for five years… managing engineering teams for Gmail, Japanese mobile, Google Labs, and social (Blogger etc.) teams for Japan. Emoji and the poo emoji in your messages is partially my fault. 💩 My first hands-on programming exposure to VR and AR came recently through being a director at a French/Japanese mobile game company and creating AR prototype interactive toys (mostly with AR.js, ARToolkit, and Vuforia) for business cards to promote company logos and brands.
In my spare time, I enjoy training and running full marathons around the world
