Specialties

Primary working areas currently consist of art and design, marketing and PR, and tourism and entertainment, including some subtitling and game localization. I also have extensive experience with computers (20+ years, technician certified), which allows me to tackle more technical marketing material such as client case studies for computer/networking equipment manufacturers. Other areas of interest include health and fitness, martial arts, cooking, linguistics, literary translation, philosophy, and more.

Background

I completed my primary and secondary education, as well as some college in the US before moving to Japan. After undergoing an intensive immersion university prep course in Japan, I completed my undergraduate education in Japanese at a Japanese university to receive a B.A. in Japanese (Language and Area Studies). I have been living in Japan since 2006, while still making regular visits to the US.
