I've been translating from Japanese to English professionally since 1996, and living full-time in Japan since 1999. My education includes the exchange program at Nanzan University (Nagoya, Japan) and BA from Stanford University.
My main interests outside of translation are judo and programming. I live in Okinawa, Japan, where I enjoy the ocean, the weather, and the relaxed culture. If you have way too much time on your hands, you can read about how I became a translator.
