When I was a kid I wanted to be older, now that I’m older I want to be a kid.

I’ve got a knack for drawing manga and get a kick out of taking photos, whether with a Canon 7D, a Canon 5Dmkii, a Fuji x100 or simply my iPhone. Contrary to common belief I did not graduate from art school but I do have a degree in Science, Physics and Chemistry specifically, and it gives me great pleasure to teach those subjects.

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie and traveling is one of my biggest passions, so you will see a lot of that.

I am highly allergic to stupidity and bullshit, so I breakout in sarcasm.

My pets are bound to appear here very often and you will certainly get to know about my geeky-nerd inclinations (yes, I got both traits).

Besides flickr and twitter you can also find me on instagram, tumblr, pinterest, foursquare and path as akanekinomoto.

Or you can also drop me a line!
