Hello! Konnichiwa! I'm a writer and musician from the U.S.A., currently living in the Kansai region of Japan (Kyoto, Osaka, Kobe, Nara, Mie-Ken) and teaching English for a living. My interestes are varied, but some big ones are music and music history (especially hip-hop and heavy metal) and Japanese culture and history. As you can see, these interests are reflected in my hubs, though eventually I'm sure I'll branch out to other topics. Dozo yoroshiku! Very nice to meet you!
