Joined 7 years ago from Yokohama, Japan. Last activity 3 weeks ago.




After 5+ years of living in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, my family and I returned to our home in Yokohama, Japan.

I lived in Los Angeles and Sydney, Australia as a child and teenager and also attended University of Wisconsin at Madison for graduate school between 1989 and 1991. I have an M.A. in Latin American Studies. I speak English and Japanese fluently and I used to speak Spanish quite well, but not anymore..lol

Looking forward to meeting fellow hubbers from diverse backgrounds:-)
