What I’m doing with my life
By day I attempt to get high school students to say incredibly simple English phrases. By night, I'm working on improving my cooking and spending a lot of time at the gym, because nabe and okonomiyaki conspire against my stomach.
I’m really good at
Making people laugh, even when I don't speak their language. I'm also pretty tech savvy, and know my way around a gym and soccer field.
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't know if it's the first thing they notice, but everyone always remembers that I do not like many cheeses. This is weird for white people, eh? Don't worry, I'll still eat pizza with you though.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: To Kill a Mockingbird, Women

Movies: Studio Ghibli, anything Tarantino. I'd like to start watching more foreign films though, they tend to be pretty awesome.

Shows: Community, Arrested Development, Game of Thrones, The Office, Flight of the Conchords, Firefly, Important Things with Demetri Martin, The Jon Dore Television Show, South Park, Adventure Time, Kaiba, Evangelion, Excel Saga, Azumanga Daioh, Monster.

Music: Queen, Daft Punk, instrumental jazz and trance techno, primarily.

Food: Indian food, nabe, okonomiyaki, anything with saba...and döner kebap

*BONUS* Video Games: Elder Scrolls, Half-life, Portal, Team Fortress, God of War, Disgaea and anything else Nippon-Ichi, Diablo, Warcraft, Xenogears, Final Fantasy...and it goes on like this.
The six things I could never do without
1. My computer(s)
2. My family
3. Good friends
4. Dark chocolate
5. Indian curries
6. You?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whether I should spend the weekend in Kobe or Osaka. I feel lucky to be living close enough to both of them that this is the kind of struggle I face.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out and about, trying to find new people to speak English to, and maybe learn some new Japanese words while I'm at it.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If there's anything you'd like to know, feel free to ask. I'm an open book on this stuff!
You should message me if
You think we could have a good connection. But I'll probably just message you instead, okay?
