About Mel

Konnichiwa! I'm Mel, a Filipino software developer living in Tokyo, Japan.

I first came to Japan a few years ago after obtaining my Computer Science degree from the University of the Philippines. I came then to study Electronic Control Engineering through a grant from the Japanese Government (Monbusho). It gave me the chance to learn more about Japan and learn Nihongo well enough to pass the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (Level 1).

At present, I work for a software consulting company while trying to finish my Master's Degree in Information Systems. I also develop websites and accept translation jobs in my free time. Should you be interested in my services please feel free to contact me.

I'm an active member of the Church of Christ (Iglesia Ni Cristo).

I'm happily married to Cerg. She's a linguist turned programmer turned English Teacher. Like me, she also speaks Japanese!
