I am an English teacher, sometime writer and general raconteur. I have lived in Japan since 2010. My interests are rather eclectic. I like traveling, especially by ship. In my spare time, I write fiction and non-fiction stories. I have a keen interest in history and cultures. I like classic cars. The natural environment never ceases to fascinate and stimulate my curiosity. I am also interested in new technology and innovation to further human development.
