'ello! It's been a while since I've updated this profile, so here are some quick scribbles!
I'm a (supposedly) aspiring journalist and wayward traveller. I recently graduated from university with a degree in Asian Studies (emphasis on Japan) and Political Science (emphasis on international relations). I love to explore new places, go on long drives, binge watch shows, and play games. I'm currently working with a non-profit that runs a couple conventions in Southern California. I eventually hope to travel back to Japan and teach English!
Aside from that I'm always looking for interesting things to do! If you're up for some adventures in L.A. let me know!
Movies: Silver Linings Playbook, Amelie, Looper, Cloud Atlas, Spirited Away, Argo, 5CM Per Second, Midnight in Paris, Wreck it Ralph, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, A Garden of Words, Howl's Moving Castle, Les Miserables, Skyfall, Last Samurai, Lost in Translation, Up, Ratatouille, Inception, Fight Club, P.S. I Love You, (500) Days of Summer, Dark Knight series, any Marvel superhero movie, and countless more...Again, let's talk!
Shows: House, Heroes, Dexter, HIMYM, Fringe, Big Bang Theory, The Office, Breaking Bad, Avatar, Game of Thrones, 24, New Girl, Being Human, BBC Sherlock, Doctor Who, Arrow, No Reservations, Eureka Seven, Eden of the East, The Layover, Log Horizon, Monthly Girls, and a couple more. I don't really have much time lately to keep up with shows though.

Atlas Genius, Lemaitre, Imagine Dragons, Blink 182, Deathcab for Cutie, Greenday, Switchfoot, The Beetles, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Seth Macfarland, Mumford & Sons, Oberhofer, The Lumineers, Wolfmother, Of Monsters and Men, Neon Trees, Adele, The Killers, Florence + the Machine, She & Him, Starfucker, The Gaslight Anthem, Dir en Grey, Asian Kung Fu Generation, Utada Hikaru, Carla Bruni, Feist, and a lot more. Those are just the ones that come to mind.
Games: The Last of Us, DOTA 2, Kingdom Hearts, Bioschock, Mass Effect, Borderlands, Assassin's Creed, Legend of Zelda, Ratchet & Clank series, Metal Gear Solid and some others. Basically anything with a decent story.
Food: Essentially anything, but I tend to go for the more pesco-vegetarian side. I love sushi and Japanese food in general. If I had to pick only 3 things they'd be. 1) Sushi 2) Ceviche 3) Any good pasta dish.
Many thanks for reading this far!
