    Project Manager
    Tofugu Staff

    Kanae is a full-time Project Manager at Tofugu. She also writes articles and codes for Tofugu. While she’s not working, she loves to eat and cook. Her favorite activity is feeding weird Japanese foods (like, chicken butthole yakitori) to her friends without telling them what it is. A random tidbit: she majored in French at university. Though, so far she uses her French bachelor’s degree only to impress people.
