I first came to Japan in 2004, and have lived in different areas of Japan before moving to Osaka. I'm a teacher, editor, and singer here, performing almost every other month. I'm also interested in writing and photography (especially product pictures and animals), as well as stop-motion animation, cooking and video games.
I enjoy studying Japanese and learning about the culture and history here. Since I like to make things, I like doing the various handicrafts here, including painting kokeshi dolls, glass blowing, and more.
