Our furthest-flung team member, Frank, codes from Matsuyama, Japan, known as the birthplace of Haiku and for the oldest hot spring in Japan. He studied computer science and worked at Ableton and Celemony before joining u-he to help develop our plug-ins and framework.

Frank’s time away from coding is spent on the family farm growing herbs, vegetables and fruits. Unfortunately, local monkeys raid the garden at night to steal all the hard work. Frank is a food enthusiast (especially Mexican, Taiwanese and Korean), loves to travel, watch movies and play video games.
