Biography of Ms. Shoko Oda, (Note: no photo by request)

Born in Saitama but raised in the States, I moved to Tokyo 2 years ago to join Bloomberg Tokyo. I work as a reporter for Bloomberg's Social Velocity team -- we're a squad of reporters and editors around the globe that monitor social media for breaking news 24/7.

When I'm not chasing after Tweeters, I'm running the streets of Tokyo, training for my first marathon.
