I am a freelance writer based in Tokyo covering human interest feature stories,

grassroots social movements, arts, culture, food/drink, and travel in Japan and beyond.

I am also an editor, interpreter, and Japanese to English translator

working across a wide variety of fields, from corporate reports to creative advertising to academic essays.

Finally, I teach English-language courses to university students in the metropolis focusing on social issues.

I love meeting new people and traveling...in addition to Japanese, I also speak

French, Portuguese and Spanish (and am hoping to next tackle Italian!).

I am available for writing, editing,  translation and interpretation projects.

I look forward to hearing from you...thanks so much for stopping by!


It seems that the more places I see and experience, the bigger I realize the world to be. Maybe that’s enlightenment enough; to know that there is no final resting place of the mind; no smug clarity. Perhaps wisdom…is realizing how small I am, and unwise, and how far I have yet to go.
