My self-summary
American living in Tokyo teaching English as a day job. Unfortunately the starving artist route is not for me. I like being able to pay rent and eating. Trying to find a way to make money off of only writing. I'm the sort of person who has my head in the clouds but feet firmly planted on the ground.

My interests are various: rock climbing, martial arts, books, writing, etc. I like learning new things sometimes a bit overly curious. These days I am focused on food. I started a small garden on my veranda, well maybe 30 plants isn't small. Pretty much everything is edible which is convenient for me because I cook a lot. If a friend comes over they sometimes have to be rolled out of my apartment. I guess I absorbed some of the Jewish hospitality I grew up with?

Pretty much if I find something interesting I will learn how to do it.

The six things I could never do without
notebook, books, computer, friends, cheese and sleep. I'm very fond of sleep.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What would happen if there was a zombie outbreak. Where to travel to next. What to write about. Life, the universe, and everything. Why tall guys like short girls. New things to cook or how to perfect things I cooked previously. Time.
On a typical Friday night I am
"Stopping the world with my freeze ray. Finding the time to find the words....It's not a death ray or an ice beam." ---Points if you know where this is from.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a ninja.
You should message me if
You want to explore the city. You want to stop stalking and say hi.
You have actually read my profile and realize that for one I am American and for another I am an English Teacher. As a result, I do not need to be taught English.
